On tap at Taphouse. Perfect pour. Creamy. Bitter. Tasty. As expected, all around excellence. Just damn near perfect.

Thoroughly enjoyed from the growler via Jungle Jim's in a snifter. This fantastic "encore" release of this fine brew pours a beautiful opaque blackish brown with a fantastic head of dark brown foam that lingers long making a firm thick ring, nice full layer, and some fantastic lacing. Nose of dark chocolate, coffee, medium char, and deeply roasted malts. Flavors are a knock out of the park with moderately strong dark chocolate on all sides, coffee and char enter middle of the taste with force and settles on the sides with subtle cream and finishes with dark molasses, deep roasted malts and grains, and the classic smoothness from the oatmeal. Great mouth feel, smooth and moderately carbonated, embraces all the correct aspects of the style, and finishes with a bitter roasted malt note with bitter char notes. Excellent! A stout drinker dream re-released for today's finicky aficionado. Try this one on tap----you will love the flavors and complexity and depth of this classic brew.

Needs to be a standard flagship---it is that good!

Cheers
