4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very nice stout from a bomber bottle purchased at Wegmans in Collegeville. The beer pours a black color with a very dark reddish hue. At first, there is a decent, brown head sitting atop the beer. But it doesnít last very long. It dwindles quickly down to just a ring around the inside of the glass. There isnít any lacing either. Those is quite strong, dominated with sweet milk chocolate, a touch of alcohol and some vanilla. The body is definitely on the sweet side, with notes of creamy chocolate, vanilla, whiskey, light flowery hops, roasted barley, toasted bread, light coffee and some caramel. The finish is a little boozy, but features some really nice chocolate, coffee and sweet flavors. Even though this beer is "only" 6.9%, it seems to play catch up with the brain about halfway through. Delicious stout!

Bottle, been aging in a bottle for a year since buying.
Aroma mostly od bourbon, with some coffee underneath.
Looks nice, brown head, black color with brown reflections.
The taste is where itís at-mostly bourbon notes (something like grapes), which were pretty strong in the aftertaste but did not cover the rest, some vanilla, no taste of alcohol at all. Under the barrel flavors was some chocolate flavor.
Donít know about fresh, but after aging it was a great one.

Bottle. Nose of caramel, butter, chocolate. Sweet and tart, buttery, vanilla. The tartness is nice but too much diacetyl going on to be enjoyable. Not up to par.
