Nearly pure black in color.
The brown colored head faded faster than I expected.

It has a sweet fruity smell.

Initial crispness from the carbonation, but as the beer warms the mouthfeel becomes more creamy.

Tastes of roasted malts, bittersweet chocolate.
Finishes dry with a slightly bitter aftertaste.
Very complex.

Nice!

A - Opaque and black with Garnet highlights. Tan head.

A - Roasted Barley and cocoa. Light boozy alchohol.

F - Chocolate flavor upfront, giving way to slightly acidic black malt flavor and some moderate bitterness.

M - Creamy, medium-full body, slightly astringent.

O - Trying to learn BJCP guidelines and this one pretty much seems to hit home with the Irish Dry Stout catagory. The only thing I don't see described is the bit of alcohol aroma and taste. Bar Harbor Brewing beers were my entry into craft beer and I forgot how good they are. Although I wonder if the quality has gone down a touch since the brewery was sold from the original owners years ago.

Bottle purchased at Craft Beer Cellar in Waterbury, VT.

Pours an incredibly dark black, with a very small half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like chocolate, some dry smoke, really dry roasted malt, and a bit of espresso beans.

The taste is similar. This goes down really easy, big dark bitter chocolate flavors, with some additional dry ashy smoke flavors, very strongly roasted malt, and espresso-like bitterness. As it warms up, near the end of the glass, there's this kind of inexplicable aroma and taste of soy sauce. It's not too off-putting.

The mouthfeel on this one is great, creamy, slightly fluffy, and dry. The body is of medium thickness, with a moderate amount of carbonation..

I've been looking for this one for a while, a personal white whale for me. It's not really rare at all, so I guess I could say it's more like my white porpoise or something.
