look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Best by 9/06/11. Whoops, couple years too late. Probably 3 years old overall. Lots of dust.

A: Nice black pour. Enormous and fluffy medium brown head. Great retention as it fades very slowly. Great retention ever after these years have passed. Nice.

S: Milk chocolate and malt balls. Interesting. A little bit of caramel sweetness in fact.

T: Chocolate and...malt balls again. Malt Balls, the candy. Must be a side effect of the age. Mild cocoa in the aftertaste. Showing some effects of age with a little bit of cardboardy oxidation but not horrible. This is my last one out of the 6pack from 3 years ago, alas.

M: Silky smooth and medium bodied.

O: One of the best accessible stouts out there. This one has suffered a bit from age but still quite good. Wish Deschutes distributed out here.

Hints of coffee, beautiful color, smooth and creamy. Just delightful! I love the thickness, and the mouthfeel of this stout. I very much enjoyed the creaminess and the full bodied taste. This beer is highly rated for a reason, it is fantastic. Try it if you get a chance!
