A - Very, very dark, rich dark chocolate head that has pretty good retention. Awesome looking stout.

S - Dark chocolate, coffee, and booze.

T - Very smooth. A little spice hits the tongue and then comes in the dark chocolate and it took awhile to figure what I was tasting (because I'm old) then bam! Licorice.

M - Very heavy and stays on the palette long after your last sip. Decent carbonation. Just dark yummy goodness.

O - Really amazing brew and so honored to have scored it when I did . Scored (3) 16oz for aging, gave one to my son.

Serving type: Bottle at the brewery

A 16.9 oz/500ml bottle, bought by my brother at the brewery in Hood River back in November 2012... it's been chilling in the fridge for 5 months since. Split with my wife to a pair of wide-mouthed tasting glasses.

A: Deep chocolate brown, impenetrable both for some mahogany clarity at the edges. No much of a head, more of a skim of mocha foam that recedes to the sides of the glass soon after the pour. Modest lace slides slowly downward.

S: Quite a 'bourbony' nose, opens up more as the beer warms. Sweet nuttiness and vanilla hints.

T: Cocoa, nut brown flavors, touch of earthy spice and lots of woody/vanilla bourbon sweetness.

M: Remarkably smooth mouthfeel, barely a carbonation prickle (though it's not flat by any means). Was a little disappointed that it seemed 'thin' to both of us. 10.8% is well-concealed, not 'hot' in the mouth at all.

O: Quite good, although I can recall the draught version sampled last fall being better (as is often the case). Very glad to have acquired 2 bottles (thanks, Kevin ~ $10/500ml was probably the most expensive beer you've ever bought!) and look forward to revisiting the remaining one in the cellar and REALLY hope that this reappears next year!
