COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Stout has come in first every year since 1995 and in 1999 was chosen one of the top 10 beers in America. Cadillac has earned the highest scores of any Maine microbrew so far, according to the Beverage Testing Institute.

Whenever I get up to Bar Harbor ME, I make sure that I have at least a few of these at my favourite local bar, and I always bring home at least one case of this absolute MANNA from heaven. Aroma of this beer is deceptively bitter, but still complex, the color is a deep dark, to almost black as any stout should be. But the flavour is fantastic. Not at all bitter, but mildly sweet and chockletey. The beer is full to almost heavy bodied, if you are hungrey when you order one of these with your dinner order, you will be full before the main course arrives. This is definately my favourite!

Thanks to Mike's mom for lugging these bottles around New England and getting one down to me. The bottle appears to be hand capped, complete with the same indention I have on my homebrew caps. Almost totally opaque blackness, large caramel head that subsides slowly into a beautiful veneer of tiny bubbles. Aroma is a fantastic blend of bitter chocolate and spruce, finely balanced. Taste is almost identical, starting off with chocalate bitterness, fading into a sprucey, piney finish. The balance and interplay is just amazing. An extraordinary brew.

Equipment: 22 oz bottle served chilled in a Trois Pistoles goblet. Appearance: Dark dark black with brown highlights that poured out a bit like some used motor oil. A light brown head formed and stuck around for a few sips before it decided to settle down to a small layer of thick and creamy foam. Aroma: Rich roasted malts, prunes, and coffee aromas are quite prominent. Mild vanilla notes. Damn fine. Damn Damn fine. Flavor: Chocolatey sweet roasted malts with vanilla aftertastes. In-farking-credible. Palate: Earthy and robust, yet still silky smooth. Soothing. Overall: Um... who do I have to kill to get some more of this? Must I bow down to Ba’Haaabah and sacrifice goats? I want a case of this, and I want it yesterday. Only bested by Oak Barrel Stout, IMHO, but it was a close match. Other: Went great with some dark Belgian chocolate.

Very impressive example of Irish Stout with big aromas and flavors. Stylistically, it is a little big for the style, but is an outstanding brew. Fresh on draught, and bottled examples of this beer that I have tried, have always been very impressive. Cadillac Mountain Stout pours to an ink black color, with a thick and rich tan head, and a moderate amount of carbonation. The nose on this beer is very impressive, with lots of big dark chocolate, coffee, and roasty aromas, paired with hop aromas of citrus and pine. The palate is rich and full, with lots of good flavors of dark chocolate, coffee, and roast. This beer finishes with more of those big flavors, then ends roasty and dry with some good citrus hop bitterness as well. A fresh and flavoful stout, this beer is a great match to hearty fare, shell fish (when in Maine, lobsters of course) or rich and creamy deserts.

This stuff is fricken amazing. The taste is just unbelievable. This stuff, dare I say, is as good as guinness. It is definitely worth buying and it comes in 1pt 6 fl oz. bottles to boot. AWESOME. The description says it all.
