10 Oz draft served at Gravity Head 2006 at Rich O's
Beer arrived a typical stout opaque black, with a pancake thick head of dark brown foam that left minor lacing.
Smell was gorgeous, a complex malt mix with hints of toffee.
Taste was absolutely outstanding, quite possibly the best stout I have ever tasted. Deep, full bodied and very statisfying.
Serving type: on-tap

Thanks to Dan for sharing this bottle.
Pours pitch black with no head. Looks like moderate thickness, maybe slightly on the thin side. Tiny bit of caramel coloring at the edges.
Smell is really sweet, vanilla, cherry, milk chocolate, licorice, molasses. Definitely smells oxidized, but nice.
Taste is licorice, slight bitterness, chocolate, molasses, oxidation.
Mouthfeel is medium thickness, very slight carbonation. Slick, slightly oil.
This beer is very sweet, but tasty. I can't help but think it's past its prime, however. Would have liked to try this fresh. At this point it is frankly a bit cloying, and difficult to drink more than 4-5 ounces.
