On tap.

A - Pitch black pour, frothy, syrupy, nice legs, and no lacing.

S - Dark roasted chocolate, black current, anise, black licorice, and smoke.

T - Follows the nose with dark smokey chocolate, charcoal on the finish, black current, and some dark fruit. Finishes with a lingering cherry chocolate bitterness.

M - Full bodied, lip smacking sticky, and very dry on the finish.

O - Very solid.

-belgian globe. on tap brewery.

A: Dark, sleek black color has a nice tan head of 1 inch which retains rather well. No visible carbonation, the lacing sticks rather well with a spacious speckled patterns.

S: The nose was of rich dark chocolate and silty coffee and cocoa. Nice level of awareness with touches of sweet dark fruit and black currant berries.

T: Rich sweet roasted malts, dark chocolate blends with a silty dark minerality, light milky roast, and fresh dark fruit. Minimal touches of the dark currant influence, smoothly bitter, roasty, and balanced.

M: Milky creamy mouthful, medium body, lightly carbonated has a smooth and slippery feel that slides off the tongue with ease as well the alcohol detection which is hardly noticeable at 10.0%.

O: A rich, very smooth and silky drinking stout that is very well brewed, very clean and polished flavor wise. Rich chocolate and roasty nature with touches of dark fruit and currant berries goes down very nicely for 10.0%. must try.

Screw-top growler received via Growling at the Moon. Thanks for the brew, Dain!

First stein pours with a 1/4" light brown head over the opaque dark brown/black brew. Head is down to a skim in a bit, with lacing that isn't going anywhere fast. Aroma is dark malts with a touch of fruit.

Taste is dark malt sweetness to start, coffee depth in the middle, and dark fruitiness through the close. Mouthfeel is slickery smooth, with good drinkability. Nice brew for the holiday, and none of that spiced junk.

Great Beer. I was shopping with my wife in Ephrata and thought about heading to Stoudts Brewery to get a growler of their Abbey triple when I passed this brewery. I remembered a friend told be about it so I turned around and had a growler filled. Awesome flavor,wonderful after taste.My only complaint, the same one I have with Guinness, is that it feels too thin in the mouth. All this flavor and aroma and it just....feels thin in the mouth. If that makes sense.

Thick black pour under a medium brown head; thin brown lace. And my, what flavor! Subdued cherry a very solid stout with a unique taste from the currants. Nice heavy mouth feel and enticing aroma. I absolutely love this stout, and I wish they made it year round.
