4.85/5 rDev +15.5%
A: burnt brown/onyx, finger khaki up+down head,
random patchy lacing
S: dark chocolate, roasted coffee, toffee, nuts aroma
mild sniff of alcohol
T: sweet malt, cacao/dark chocolate, roasted coffee
mild bitter finish
M: med body, smooth/creamy with mild
bubbles on tongue
O: Overjoyed to revisit Deschutes and thrilled
they are now in Chicago area. This is just
an outstanding Stout. Will please Imp Stout, as well.
Would love to keep it in my regular rotation, especially for the Winter
months ahead. 1st Stout I have had in ages and
this crisp (55/Sunny Autumn is perfect pairing).
HEAVENLY; SEEK IT OUT!

4.09/5 rDev -2.6%
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.
