On a day like today when all the liquor stores are closed and all of my beer for the holidays is gone, I need something special to fall back on, which is why I decided to open one of my last bottles of the Cadillac Mountain Stout. Poured a wonderful black cool color with a tiny lace heading that stuck around modestly through it all. Smell was of nice fresh coffee, very sweet fudge, milk chocolate, and maybe even a hint of some brown unrefined sugar. The stout tasted like a big piece of chocolate cake, not too rich, that was very sweet in the beginning and gradually became slightly bitter. There was also a vague smoke character in there, making it all the more interesting and complex. Mouthfeel was pretty light, which made it very drinkable. In my humble opinion, this is one of the best stouts in the U.S, even the world (that I have tried anyway). Would go great as a dessert beer, or paired with some sweet meats. I find myself growing a little bit sad as the beer in my glass becomes less and less. On a brighter note, If you get a chance to sample this beer whether through trade or in the Bar Harbor area, you'll be delighted to find that this is a superb beer certainly worth seeking out. Cheers to the brewers for making a great beer that I will hopefully get to have again.
