12oz bottle into a Founders snifter
Winter '12-'13 bottling

A: Inky, pitch black color. Dark brown head forms on top and remains only briefly before fading to a ring of foam.

S: Darkly roasted malts, alcohol, and some dark fruit aromas.

T: Dark malts, roast, bitter dark cacao, and boozy alcohol.

M: Not as thick and creamy as it looks. Not thin by any means, but not as big of a body as some other stouts. Alcohol is a little warming.

O: This is a fine stout for a winter release. The warming alcohol and dark chocolate and malt profile is very welcome on a cold day, and still enjoyable even now in the summer months. This is the third bottle from a four pack I've had for some time, and in my opinion this bottle is a little past its prime. The second bottle that I opened a few months ago seemed to have a more prominent chocolate profile. That being said, this was still great. I'll be hanging on to my last bottle to see where it goes.
