Thanks Steve!

Poured a pitch black color with two fingers of frothy, tan head that dissipated rather quickly. Poor lacing on the sides. Minimal retention. (Sight - 3.25)

First smell was some kind of liquor. First thought was bourbon, but that might have been more of a wish. Probably Bailey’s Irish Cream. Also purple grape, dark fruit, plum, raisins, pure dark chocolate, some roasted coffee beans, roasted toffee and dark caramel. Very nice on the nose. (Smell - 4.38)

Taste was just as good. Got dark fruit, plum, purple grape, fig, raisins, dark chocolate, sugary chocolate syrup and toffee. (Taste - 4.25)

Full body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish. (Feel - 4.38)

I couldn’t believe how good this was, especially for the style. Very tasty. (Overall - 4.25)

An odd metallic finish and light fluffy consistency but unremarkable outside of being a dry stout

Look-black as night, pours a shocking amount of off white head that retains well.
Smell-Bread, subtle coffee and chocolate, pleasant but simple and somewhat subdued.
Taste-Bready malts upfront, nice kick of coffee with a bit of chocolate, a refreshing piney kick, almost reminiscent of a black IPA.
Feel- Light/medium in body but not at all thin, nice, crisp carbonation.
Overall-didint blow my hair back but a very nice take on the style. definitely worth giving a shot.

How bizarre - I never heard of this beer out of Bar Harbor. I didn't think anything happened in Bar Harbor. This beer though was a great find at Bauer as I planned on grabbing a coffee, and this replaced that non-alcoholic idea with something much better. Took it home immediately (hopefully someone else will buy groceries) and poured this amazingly dark beer with little head or lacing. Such a great coffee smell with hints of other things I can't identify (I think I smelled an old tire), but this was so smooth and perfect. Not very alcoholy, but a nice malt balance. This was great. Perhaps I will visit Bar Harbor for some when they get a road.

An exceptional stout. Slightly metallic, but malt complexity and a porter-like aftertaste.

Fantastic beer from Bar harbor. Great tastes of coffee and chocolate with a thick thick head. Excellent stout all around.

This is just one more fantastic beer on a long list of beers I wish I could get down south. top notch Stout made by very nice people, the fact that they refuse to deal with distributors(crooked a$$holes) is understandable. I miss the old labels for all of there beers. any back to the beer, nice thick head with the classic pitch black body that light cannot penetrate, a very nice toasty coffee flavor with chocolate nutty flavors present, nice smooth and thick mouth feel. a true pleasure to drink
