Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a small light tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, light fruits, and yeast. Flavor of sweet malt initially with a roasty finish, some more bitter chocolate notes. Definite Begian yeasty notes. Nothing too special, a little on the sweet side, but a chill Belgian stout.

With this review I may now call myself "Connoisseur".

Pours very dark brown with a thick creme head. Nose is boring and almost comes off as non-existent. Flavor is hearty with a slight tang to it. Caramel tones. Brown sugars. Feel has a fairly full carbonation to it and the liquid is fairly thicker. Overall a nice one to drink. A fair example of a Belgian stout.

Bottle: Poured a medium black color ale with a large off-white head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light roasted malt with Belgian malt and some light DMS. Taste is also dominated by lightly sweet Belgian malt with some lightly roasted malt and some overcooked vegetables which is not strong enough to ruin this beer but not very pleasant either. Body is somewhat full with great carbonation and no alcohol is showing. Interesting take on the style but too flawed to try on a regular basis.

From a 750 ml bottle, this brew pours a black color with dark brown-earth highlights. A three finger head is a light brownish color, roughly akin to chocolate milk. The taste is a little subtle, with chocolate, grain, smoke, and malt aromas. No real hop presence in the smell. The taste, though, has a malty sweetness in the front, balanced with a medium hop bitterness and considerable grain astringency and bitterness. It doesn't quite get husky, but the tannins, combined with the burnt/highly roasted malts, give the beer a nice backbone. This give the mouthfeel an interesting character as well. A touch of sourness is also present in the taste. Long bitter finish.

Another brew provided by Sea Bass. This one was recently retired.

A: Pours a nice dark black hue with a huge head. Great retention and thick chunk lacing.

S: Huge roasted malt aroma the is big on chocolate. Hints of dark fruits peek thru in the finish.

T: Bold chocolate aromas marry nicely to the toasted malt. Hints of yeast come thru along with a touch of metal to round things out. Nice.

M: Rather light in body for the style.

D: Not bad. Nice rare gem that was a please to enjoy.
