4.63/5  rDev +13.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Sampled from a 12oz bottle with a Bottled on stamp of Sept 26 02. Sampled on August 13, 2003. Sadly this beer will never seen it's first birthday.

Poured a pitch black with a big, frothy caramel colored head. The head faded in about two minutes to a thin, bubbly covering. With a quick swirl or through drinking this stout leaves rings of lacing that don't seemd to want to cling to the glass.

Aromas of bitter coffee, malt, toffee, earth, and hops rise from the glass like the bird on the bottle.

The first texture is creamy and full bodied on your tongue. It is quickly followed with toffee flavors, then bitter coffee, caramel, malt, and a slight hop bite at the end to wash away any hints of sweetness. Finishes clean and dry, but leaves the mouth watering for more. There is little to know taste of alcohol and with the exception of the label there is little to indicate it's 9.1% ABV.

I wonder, since this is bottle conditioned does it just get better with age? Sadly I will not know for some time as this was my only bottle.

I'm glad I had a friend provide me with a sample. I'll have to return the favor.

4.16/5  rDev +2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Ebon, short tan head that lingers more than most stouts.
Smell: Dark stone fruit, some hops, big coffee.
Taste: Big black coffee taste. The bitter hangs on for a bit but is slightly offset by that ineffable dark fruit.
Mouthfeel: Oddly gritty. Does hang about in the mouth for a long time.
Overall: The sum of the parts are greater than the individual components on this one and it is a good solid stout. If you are a stout fancier like me it may not be a favorite but worth trying, buying, sharing and perhaps a revisit down the road.
