Bottled 08 April 2011
330mL bottle poured into a Bourbon County snifter type glass. Pours black, one finger tan head. Fades to a lingering lace that's present throughout the entire time drinking.
Smells almost like Bell's Black Note. Dried fruit, sweet sweet smell. Not much else present but that's OK.
Sweet, not much roast characteristics present. Just a little bit of roasted character noticeable in the finish after a drink of water.
Super smooth mouthfeel.
Wow. Almost hitting the "amazing beer" level, but a little one dimensional. Maybe a little sweet, but not too sweet to finish an entire 330mL bottle

11.2oz bottle poured into tulip glass.

A - Black with 1 finger of dark brown head.

S - Dark chocolate with roasted coffee.

T - Bitter chocolate with roasted coffee. I also get a little molasses and black cherry.

M - Moderate-to-full body with moderate carbonation. Somewhat sticky. Alcohol is well hidden.

O - This is a really well done stout. The amount of roast and bitterness is perfect, while the somewhat sweet chocolate rounds it out.
