2011 bottle poured into a wide mouthed chalice. 4-pack for $12 at Whole Foods Devon, PA

This is a very deep brown beer with reddish fringes. The sand colored head quickly recedes leaving just a thin ring of tiny bubbles. The beer smells richly chocolatey with a little raisin fruitiness. Blackout has slight coffee bitterness at first, then a malty sweetness comes through before the dark cocoa finish. The mouth feel is very smooth, but a little bit thin. Overall, very good, well balanced stout with just enough sweetness that I like
