4.8/5 rDev +14.6%
look: 3 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
Bottle poured into chalice
Appearance: Thin, dark black brew with almost no lacing or head; average looking.
Smell: Soft phenols, velvety chocolate, coffee, marshmallows, cotton candy. I have a soft spot for dark beers with a full scent. This is definitely a winner in the aroma department. Not only is the scent complex, but it is also very thick and creamy.
Taste: I always start with the ending, so this will be a dyslexic description of my tasting: BBQ, smoke, thick chocolate, dark grains, barley, moderately bitter, some blackberry, tart flavors. It's a beautiful bouquet of stout flavors. It's silky, with a hint of alcohol. Dogfish hid the 18 percent ABV well; it's almost undetectable.
This beer is like a good book with an ugly cover. It tastes amazing, but it looks mediocre. Bravo Sam Calagione, this is one hell of a stout.

4.61/5 rDev +10%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
2011 vintage poured into a snifter
A- very dark with a porous tan 1/2 inch head
S- near perfect- chocolate, molasses, dark fruits dominate
T- taste matches the nose and so smooth...being a 2011 vintage definitely benefited the smoothness of this beer...still, this beer is nearly 20 percent and youd never guess...good achievement by DFH
M- thick and chewy...very very good, just what i like
O- i paid 15 dollars for this 3 year old vintage single bottle....should you pay that much for it? absolutely not...but IMO it is the best DFH beer brewed and one of the better stouts out there especially considering it isnt barrel aged and it is nearly 20 percent...quite an achievement!
