A - poured a pitch black, when held to light barely any got through displaying a deep murky mahogany and ruby, two finger thick head dissipated to a fine bubbled froth. No lacing.

S - aroma is riddled with bourbon and whiskey, slight sour, alcohol, lots of chocolate, and tons of fruity sweetness. A little hot on the nose.

T - Ridiculously deep and complex flavor, the flavors meld well to sort of homogeneous note. In this amalgam is tons of dark roasted malt, chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, nice sweet toffee, lots of peppery fruity yeast Esthers, and a ton of bitterness, ends dry, almost tannic.

M - ample carb for the style, body is a little watery, dry and a little hot.

O - the taste is great, for SA I was actually surprised they could put something out this good. Is a little rough around the edges, a little too hot for 9% and somewhat tannic/astringent. Looks great though and aroma was so enticing albeit a little boozy, ill drink it again.

Poured from a large bomber into a tasting glass.

A - A 4oz pour yields about 1 finger of offwhite head. Lacing is minimal. Color: Very dark amber.

S - Smells like a strong dark ale. Don't get much of the coffee or stout listed on the label.

T - Tasty but average. I was hoping to get a more coffee and stout flavors.

M - Excellent for the style.

O - Yummy but underwhelming.

Thirteenth Hour pours an almost black color with a nice long lasting lacing head. There is a very sweet aroma; lots of date notes, some oak. The taste has big oak flavors, big sweet spices, lots of dry fruits. Very complex, but nice body, a little watery. Overall lots of stuff going on here, some nice flavors, and good to sip.

Poured from a big-ass bottle (oddly shaped, bomber-sized) into my snifter glass. Deep, opaque brown with tinges of deep red around the base when held to the light. 1/2 finger of tan head which quickly faded. Aromas of oak and molasses. The flavors were very reminiscent of a trippel with hints of molasses, banana, some dark fruit (raisins?), some alcohol (expected at 9%). This had a rich mouthfeel, but again, not what I was expecting for a stout. Overall, this drank like a trippel, albeit a dark appearing trippel... not quite sure what SA's definition of a 'Belgian' stout is, but be aware that this did not drink like a stout. However, it was a pretty nicely balanced beer overall, which improved as the glass warmed.
