22oz bottle, bottled 7/31/13, poured into a snifter

A- pours an oily pitch black color with a small khaki colored head that reduces to leave only a ring around the edge

S- dark roasted malt with notes of fig, raisin, blueberry, dark chocolate, caramel & a hint of espresso

T- dark artisan chocolate up front mixes with lots of dark fruity flavors of blueberry, black cherry & currant. Sweet caramel, along with light char eventually leads to a roasted coffee finish with more dark berries on the linger

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that continues to the finish

O- nice fruity stout that is quite drinkable

Clear black colored beer with a small brown colored head.

Smells of toasted grain and coffee with a fruit scent of peach with some smoke.

Starts out Mildly sweet with a strong patent malt flavor. Fizzy on in the mouth for the style this one actually get drier as you drink it.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a pretty standard stout.

Pours a lovely liquid dark chocolate black in the glass. Light Brown frothy head reaches nearly two inches with no problem. Nose is soft but full with tones of chocolate, sweet malt and dark very ripe fruits. First sip yields an amazing smoothness to the palate. Creamy layers of coco and milk chocolate mixed with those same dark fruit notes that I don't normally see play this well in a stout. This bottle had been in my cellar for over a year. The bottle is dated 7-31-13. I'm sure this has something to do with how smooth and well balanced this brew is. Just simply a wonderful stout overall.
