Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: pezoids on 05-16-2002

Our brewers have poured their hearts and roasted malted into this rich, slightly sweet stout. Luscious notes of coffee and chocolate accent the smooth, creamy, mouth feel. We will not apologize for any amorous affairs resulting from the consumption of this beverage.

12 oz bottle into a teku.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown color. The head is two fingers high, and khaki in shade. Retention isn't fantastic, but the creamy-looking texture leaves behind a nice amount of lacing. (3.75)

Smell: This has a big roasted presence for 5%, exactly the way I like my stouts to be. Additional notes of coffee, dry baker's cocoa, minerals, and smoke help round it out. Simple yet oh-so-effective. (3.75)

Taste: It starts off with a pleasant smokiness. Roasted malt and coffee notes build up into a slightly sweet finish. Post-swallow, a touch of minerals enter the picture. While simple, it strikes a good balance between drinkability and...uh...balance. (3.5)

Mouthfeel: The carbonation is a little sharp for my taste buds (style-wise), but I can't deny that it's a dry and easygoing stout. It actually is kind of creamy before taking the (admittedly slightly overdone) fizz into effect. Once the carbonation subside, the finish becomes somewhat sweet. (3.5)

Overall: A damn fine every day stout. Didn't this used to be brewed with oysters, though? C'mon Yards, bring back the oysters! Despite my mild disappointment on that facet, it's a fine stout that's worthy of being bought (and drunk, even!) by the six pack. (3.75)

3.63/5: 'Love' is a bit strong; still a moderately impressive stout

This beer reminds me of the snow laden streets of philadelphia. Had some good times around it. Pretty standard stout, mid to heavy body, mid thickness in mouth feel, chocolaty notes with roasted malts. Middle of the road, but still pretty tasty
