12 oz. bottle, with a vague remnant of a bottled on date which I think reads Bottled 09/25/2012. I have had plenty of Arcadia beers in the past, but this has not been one of them. The second beer by Arcadia that I am reviewing here on BeerAdvocate.

Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.

A - Fairly non-aggressive pour yields an opaque black colored body with a tiny thin mocha colored foam which disappeared pretty instantly. No real lacing to speak of.

S - Can definitely smell some cocoa. Dried dark fruits, and a bit of alcohol presence. Burnt brown sugar. Molasses. Vanilla extract. Smells pretty nice, but it could have more going on.

T - Cocoa. Brown sugar. Vanilla. Chocolate cake kind of taste. Tastes like desert in a bottle to me. Decent amount of carbonation, pretty well-balanced. A tasty stout, but there should probably be more going on considering what went into this one.

M - Creamy, milky, subtle cocoa flavor leaves a dry powdery finish on the palate.

Overall, I'm impressed, and it is definitely a beer I'd drink again. The first stout I've tried from Arcadia, and a dangerously drinkable one at 7.00% abv. Arcadia does good things, and I should probably be picking up their stuff more often than I am. A solid stout.

Black in color,but some light does manage to peek through. A fingernail thin layer of khaki colored head is present and doesn't cover quite the entire top. Light notes of chocolate are all I get with the aroma. I get predominately sweet chocolate and a light,neutral hoppiness in the front of the palate. The mouth is a bit sticky and viscous. Somehow the chocolate and the hoppiness comes off a bit cloying. Sweet and slightly bitter is odd.

3.23/5  rDev -10%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Dark brown/tan, Not much of a head and minimal lacing.

Smell - Chocolate, roasty malts, cocoa, molasses, vanilla. Some milk notes along with some caramel.

Taste - Starts out with a cocoa, some malts and lactose milk. Kind of odd milky flavor along with molasses. Some raisin and a little cherry show up. Not overly chocolate flavored, and has a bite of alcohol warmth at the finish.

Mouthfeel - Malts and lactose milk coat the tongue. Palate gets more malts, some cocoa and sugars, along with some alcohol. Aftertaste is milky and weak malts.

Overall - Boring, weak flavored and lacking chocolate. If it wasn't for the molasses this would be one bland beer. Nothing id want to drink again.
