BBB63 (6038) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 16, 2009
Bottle and served in a standard no-nik pint glass: Pour deep brown with a lovely creamy tan head and fairly good lace, amazing what you can do without a nitro widget? The aroma has notes of milk chocolate, hazelnut, molasses, faint dusty yeast, prune and coffee esters. The taste is moderately malt forward with sweet chocolate overtones and toasty bread. A nice coffee and slightly salty note adds balance and complexity. Finished with a hint of woody smoke, very laid back hop bitterness and dark fruit acidity. The mouth feel appears thinner than you expected from the pour but it actually adds to the drinkability of the beer. All in all I found this to be a pleasant surprise, an easy drinking yet complex enough stout.

Black body with a well lasting tan head. Despite other reviews I get more coffee than the chocolate, smooth in the taste, balanced with decent hop presence, and notice the alcohol late in the peace.

Pours translucent deep brown with a creamy beige head. Nutty chocolate aroma. Light-ish body and medium-light carbonation. Rather sweet taste with roasty caramel chocolate, molasses and a dash of prune. Baker’s chocolate finish with a hint of smoke. A pretty solid offering.

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2009
Brewed in Scotland...... Pours a very dark brown almost black in color with a super thin off beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee notes. The taste is of chocolate malts, nuts, coffee beans and vanilla notes. The mouthfeel is smooth and thin with a faint bitterness at the finish. Not bad and very drinkable, but something is missing?
