Bottle. Didn’t realize how rare this was before opening, so sorry for not sharing it. Tight, tan head. When you smell it, you’d swear it was a West Coast hoppy amber or IPA. Plenty of C hops and a hint of black patent malts. Flavor of orange and tangerine to go along with the burnt coffee and wet forest timber. The beer has a really natural taste to it, fresh. Like lime gummyworms. I’d love to try this on a nitro pour.

TimE (3092) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 4, 2009
Had not tried this in a couple years and had it on New Years Eve at the Nakameguro Taproom. Seriously underrated brew. Great example of the style, with its modest ABV, dryness, dark chocolate, dark fruits character and just a hint of baked cake. Moderate bitterness on the end and deceptively full bodied for the ABV. Solid depth and balance through out. Superb.

sic1314 (3048) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2013
Poured dark brown with a frothy beige head. Aroma of dry, roasted malt, some floral notes. Medium body, flavour of the roast malt, coffee with dark and milk chocolate. Dry, bitter finish.

Frovigalning (2908) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Smell of chocolate, hard bread, also a bit funky aroma, same as their pale ale. Similar taste. I miss the roasted coffee notes, this was more like a porter.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - APR 7, 2008
Bottle from Tanakaya. Yep, it’s a stout all right. Not oatmeal sweet. Not dry like Guinness. Very nicely done. Unlike a Yebisu "Stout", Baird’s really IS a stout. Quite bitter in the finish.

AndySnow (2820) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2013
Tap at Popeye, Tokyo. Black colour with a thick beige head. Creamy. Sweet licorice, coffee aroma. Flavour of dark fruit, plum, coffee, licorice.

pintbypint (2541) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 16, 2011
360ml brown bottle. Pours deep dark brown with mahogany highlights. Great head - quite thick, creamy, longlasting, beige in colour. Nose has dark chocolate and a decent level of roasted malt. Very light hop note. Roasty malt in the mouth, some coffee and chocolate. Decent roasted malt bitterness and light hops in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, fine carbonation. Dry stouts do not often excite me, but this is quite enjoyable, would have no problem sessioning this.
