Corked & Caged 750 ml Bottle of 2013 Vintage. Dark brownish black pour capped with a thick layer of cappuccino foam. Aroma blends roasted malt, burnt dark sugars and chocolate with a bit of vanilla and charred oak around the edges. Aggressive notes of bittersweet chocolate, whiskey and molasses upfront along with some espresso, black cherry, dark fruits and smoky roasted malt toward the end. Mouthfeel is naturally thick and creamy with moderate carbonation and just enough alcohol to hold all the rich flavors together.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown with minimal tan head. Aroma malty grains, cocoa, lightly toasted. Full body. A little alcohol but not much. Flavor is a good balance of dryness and sweetness. Malt and grain mostly. Some cocoa/coffee. Don’t get much wood or anything from the whiskey barrels. Not as much roasted flavor as would usually find in such a stout. Don’t get me wrong this a very good beer, but I was just a little let down by the lack of complexity.
