Outstanding flavor. Head and body are thinner than Guiness. One of my favorite beers.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle with a best by of 04/24/2016. Aroma has a moderate chocolate and roast character. Some low caramel and toffee notes. Moderate dark fruit esters with plum, cherry and floral notes. Light hop notes. Pours black, but with dark brown hues and a medium sized, fairly thick, light mocha head with decent retention as it slowly recedes. Light lacing and medium small legs. Flavor has a medium sweetness with balanced chocolate and roast. Some dark fruit notes of plum, cherry and raisin with some caramel and toffee. Medium bitterness with a medium light woody, herbal hop note. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice, traditional American stout. Some hop notes with balanced chocolate and roast. Medium fruit and floral esters as well.

Stine (1744) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2015
Fizzy black pour, with an airy buildup of mocha hued bubbles. Tangy fruit aroma of raspberry, black cherry, black mission fig. Lactic tartness mingles with chocolate and baked graham crust sweetness, underneath. The ample, if guarded, malt depth becomes apparent with some warming, and these graham notes become the focal point. Lightly spiced flavor offers a melange of cinnamon, clove, and anise detailing the subtle dark malt, and these notes affect a cold, herbal sensation through the nose as well. No acrid malt, or soapiness, but it’s watery, and there’s not enough density to the malt ultimately. The palate is nearly ruined by a violent over carbonation issue, and while a little air and a lot of time make it softer, it can never be described as texturally pleasing. Brief, distantly fruity finish, astringent coffee grounds far out.

Chilled. Bomber served into tulip. Big, fluffy head is gone quick. Very little lacing. Roasted malt aromas. Taste is lightly sweet with some bitterness. Notes of chocolate. Some coffee and vinilla. Moderate carbonation. Medium bodied. Smooth texture. A pretty good stout but idk about award winning.

Chocolate notes and a bit of milk. Dark color. Smooth mouth but not velvety. Not bitter and not sweet. Tap

SlovakSniper (4614) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 25, 2015
Petite bouteille achetée à Portland. Robe de stout et tête beige qui ne meurt jamais. Nez chocolaté et fruité avec des raisins et joliment touchée par quelque chose qui s’apparente à l’anis. Goût de chocolat modérément doux avec une pointe houblonnée comme une herbe parfumée et même boisée. Retour bien senti des fruits bleus. En bouche, un corps de moyenne densité avec un pétillement normal et une texture comme de la petite crème. Une finale houblonnée bien fidèle à ce style de bière jadis brassée pour les grandes traversées de l’océan.

Large head that fades quickly. Minimal lacing. I also picked up on a sweet bourbon like aroma. Smooth and somewhat light body for a stout. Not overly complex but well done. Sweet and roasty with a subtle at most bitterness in the finish. Enjoyable stout.

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Stone Ruination pint glass From: Beer Advocate’s SteveB24 Price: N/A Purchased: N/A; Received on Feb. 7, 2015 Consumed: Feb. 18, 2015 Misc.: Best by February 2015 Thanks Steve! Poured a pitch black color with two fingers of frothy, tan head that dissipated rather quickly. Poor lacing on the sides. Minimal retention. (Sight - 3.25) First smell was some kind of liquor. First thought was bourbon, but that might have been more of a wish. Probably Bailey’s Irish Cream. Also purple grape, dark fruit, plum, raisins, pure dark chocolate, some roasted coffee beans, roasted toffee and dark caramel. Very nice on the nose. (Smell - 4.38) Taste was just as good. Got dark fruit, plum, purple grape, fig, raisins, dark chocolate, sugary chocolate syrup and toffee. (Taste - 4.25) Full body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish. (Feel - 4.38) I couldn’t believe how good this was, especially for the style. Very tasty. (Overall - 4.25) 4.24 94 A-

Smoky and smooth with slight coffee notes. Closer to medium body. Not a lot of complexity.

Jow (3189) - New York, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle at patriots place for holiday lunch with friends. Pours deep brownish black small head. Nose is chocolate and coffee. Tastes of Cocoa powder, malt, coffee grinds, malted milk balls, and slight oily texture. Nice lingering slightly biter finish.
