Pours a very dark brown that’s also very thick, and has a smallish head. Good mix of roastedness with a hint of chocolate. Fairly easy on the palate, thought it’s a tad harsh at the end.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draught at Baileys Taproom, Portland as "Caldera Old Growth" (8,8%)
Aroma is really nice with roasted malt, coffee and chocolate.Flavour is dry with roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and somewhat salty licorice. Smooth and very creamy palate that becomes sticky after some sips. The coffee notes get stronger towards the dry finish. A masterpiece, reminds me of Nøgne Ø Imperial Stout.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a dark dark brown. Head is tan and dense. Aroma of spicy licorice, coffee grinds, chocolate malt, smoked dark fruit. Taste is very boozey with chocolate, bitter hops present. Decent stout from Caldera. I think this beer would be perfect if laid down for a year or two. Might take away the hotness of the alchohol. Worth trying though.
