Bottling code of 14045B6 which translates to 02/14/14

Appearance - Pours near black with cola brown edging and a tan colored 2 finger head. Good retention, resulting in a thin layer of suds across the top. Small spots of lace cling tight, sporadically dispersed around the glass.

Smell - Prominent milk chocolate aroma with hints of roast in the distance.

Taste - Hmmm, much lighter than the nose would have one believe. Watered down chocolate notes and hints of stale coffee. More watered down flavor in the finish that comes through with a light earthy bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium in body with low amounts of carbonation.

Overall - This stout has a promising aroma, but that's about it. The taste is a bland mess. Maybe 10 months of shelf life has killed what might be an otherwise great stout, but I'm not getting much of what might have been. Candidate for a re-review, but to be blunt my expectations with a fresher bottle isn't very high.

Chocolate malt flavor coming through, but expecting more roasted for a stout.

Sampled last Saturday night, December 6, 2014. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a 10 ounce 'Boot'.

Pours a very dark brown that is almost black with ruby highlights. Close to a 1-finger beige head is seen that settles down to a 3mm of so after a bit. Sheets of lacing is seen that sticks to the sides of the glass when sipped. The aroma is of roasted malts with a good amount of cocoa. Pretty much the same is said for the taste with a light hint of coffee, unlike some stouts that have a lot. Just a very slight bitter finish which is probably from the semi-sweet cocoa. Very tasty and goes go easy. Medium-bodied with perfect carbonation for this brew style. Overall, I liked this one.
