Bottle pour at the bottle share hosted by Adam Fine Wine & Liquor held at Sophie’s Place in Redondo Beach, CA.

2012 vintage.

Pours an almost opaque super dark crimson brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of roasted malt, cocoa, wood, and some brandy aromas. Taste is much the same with an alcohol kick and a woody finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some solid aromas and flavors.

Thanks to Jeff for trading this one to me. Pours black in color with a small off-white head. Nose is full of brandy and vanilla with a bit of oak. Plenty of roast, dark fruit, and cocoa as well. The flavor is quite bold. A touch of booze but an overall enjoyable brandy and vanilla component. Strong roasted malt and dark chocolate with an undertone of dark fruit. This was really quite good.

The color is dark but not completely blackout. Smell is a little hot with a little smoke/roastyness. Taste is strongly barrel, but not obnoxiously so. Some of the stout makes it through, but no smoke or roastyness from the nose. Finish almost has a slight bitterness to it. Overall, solid beer.

Thanks!

A: Deep brown with a fast fading beige head.

S: Very strong brandy character on the nose, unlike most brandy Stouts I've had. Pronounced plum and grape. Very fruity. Blackstrap molasses accompanies dark chocolate and some apple. Touch of caramel.

T: Strong roasted grain profile with strong brandy notes that ultimately submit to the base beer. Big grape and plum presence with a strong chocolate profile. Moderate roasted malt presence.

M: Full body with upper medium carbonation.

Overall: Really nice aroma and good flavor. Nice Brandy barrel Stout.

Pours a dark black body, one finger lighter brown head, great retention. Not much lacing, but who cares, right? Tons of spirit, vanilla, oak, sweet graham crackers, a bit of dark sugar, mild anise on the nose. Straight forward. On the palate, a lot of caramel and graham cracker, a bit of vanilla, chocolate, mild dark fruit, and even a slight bit of smoke, a bit of that old campfire char. Some cocoa. It's pretty tasty. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, not quite full but not medium either; good carbonation that's on the lower side but more than acceptable. Finish is a bit of anise, dark fruit and char. Good bit of alcohol heat, but not necessarily a bad thing. Overall, a tasty smoked stout for sure; different but has all the qualities that brings the kids to the yard.

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a stemmed glass.

A: Pours dark, dark brown/black and leaves a couple fingers of dark tan head that linger for a while.

S: Rich sugar coated raisins, dark chocolate fudge, mild cherry, smoked malts. Nice.

T: Smoked malts, caramel, dark chocolate malted milk balls, light toffee, vanilla, oak. Quite nice.

M: Medium carb with a medium, creamy body. Finishes a nice blend between sweet and bitter. Well balanced.

O: Smoky, sweet, roasty. This is a great combo of stout flavors that really work well together. Impressive.
