3.53/5 rDev -7.3%
500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Black with a nice khaki head. Good retention. Thick collar and nice surface wisps.
Smell - Strong roasty aroma. I might be imagining a briny aroma. Some licorice.
Taste - Roasty dark chocolate. Fruity flavors, like the licorice aroma. A little vinous. Bitter roasted malts in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium body. Roasty bitterness.
Overall - Pretty good. I think the brininess is a result of suggestion, but whatever.

ArtiSnale (artisnal) in a glass at the brew cafe in Ardmore.
Artisnale goes in the glass black, yet not jet black, this is just your standard black. Some dark brown suds up top, leaving no cling. The body looks on the thick side but drinks lighter than that. The smell is something different. I am not a snail guy, so I guess that's the odor I am getting here. Some cocco and roasted malt, maybe some hop presence. This is a weird one. Taste is fairly impressive, I would say this is in between american single and double stout in viscosity, the body is medium, the carb is low on the one, yet the beer is not dead, rather a smooth ride. Taste is a stout with snails, thats about all i can deliver on that end. I finished my glass, it's enjoyable, but not memoable but scores points for originality sake.

Served in an eight ounce glass at the brewpub, Artisnale is black in color, topped with a cream colored head that retains well. The nose opens with black roast, charred coffee, some musty salts/minerals, and dark pine hops. On the palate this thing really hits - it’s a big flavor, and a bit overpowering, with heavy charred elements. Burnt molasses. Minerals. Dark hops with a growing bitterness. Drinks harder than it’s abv. Appreciate the experiment, but not one I’d go for again.

First had: on tap at the brewpub
Collaboration with Stillwater and Teresa's (Wayne, PA).
Interesting brew here. I wasn't totally sold on it, but it was interesting. Dark brown-black pour, dark reddish tints around the edges, with a nice medium-sized, creamy tan head; spotty lacing and decent retention that rejuvenated with a quick swirl. Aroma was fairly roasty with a interesting bitterness, and a definite ashy quality. The aroma was well reflected in the taste, moderate roast, ash, quite mineral from the addition of of escargot shells, similar to an oyster stout but not nearly as noticeable. A little bit awkward, and it took a while for me to really grasp the melding of flavors entirely. Mouthfeel wasn't as smooth as I like my stouts, about medium in body, maybe a little thin, but about what I expected. Decent overall, but honestly with all the other beers TH has to offer, I probably would not get this one again. Points for ingenuity though...I don't think I've ever seen a snail beer before.
