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.

Most dessert chocolate beers are way too sweet.
This beer is not sweet; it is dark.
The cocoa comes through, not the sugar.
It is thick and heavy.
I wouldn't want to drink more than one in a row.
But it's great after meal and some stouts or porters.
A perfect after dinner beer !
