22 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Handwritten Batch #8 on the side of the bottle. My first beer from Begyle Brewing Co., and a collaboration beer with their neighbors Ork Posters. I picked this bottle up in celebration of these guys making the cover of BeerAdvocate magazine issue #80.
Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.
A - Pours a dark cola brown, but opaque black in the glass. Less than a finger of bubbly mocha suds disappears about as quickly as it appeared. Some chestnut highlights when held to the light.
S - Smell is of dark malt roast, cold coffee, coffee grounds, and some bittersweet powdery chocolate. A pretty tame aroma, but it hits it's mark.
T - Taste is nice. Cold coffee, bitter malt roast, some char, some cream, and lots of dark bittersweet baker's chocolate. A hint of vanilla creeps out as the beer warms.
M - Goes down smooth and clean, with some dryness and just a hint of powdery bitterness lingering on the palate.
Overall, it isn't packing a ton of flavor or a ton of distinctions from the rest of the pack, but it is a solid classic example of the style. Always a pleasure to try out a new local brewery, and I look forward to having more from Begyle.

Collaboration with Ork Posters to celebrate the opening of their new retail shop, Neighborly: a new home goods shop on Montrose Avenue.
Dark brown when poured, black in the glass. A two finger head of light tan foam rises and falls, leaving behind a spindly web of lace. Head retention could be better, but it looks nice enough.
Smooth roasted black malts lending some coffee and bakers chocolate to the aroma.
Flavors of dry ashy roasted malt, coffee and unsweetened dark chocolate emerge again. Dry with a little bit of hop bitterness in the back. Finishes smoothly, clean and dry. Light to just under medium bodied, smooth with finely textured carbonation. Overall it's a nice stout, better than Flannel Pajamas.
