Number one in a series of five stouts produced for the fall and winter seasons. This beer is full bodied with hints of chocolate, roasted barley, coffee flavors and a nice creamy head.

Dark brown beer, small tan head. Nose is smooth roastiness, coffee and milk chocolate. Flavor has a lot more coffee and roast, sweetish and bitter, chocolate and coffee. Long roasty and bitter finish. Simple, but a gorgeous finish. Light, but flavorful.

heman (587) - Tychy, POLAND - AUG 18, 2015
Nieprzejrzyście czarne, z piękną brązową pianą. Aromat to gorzka czekolada, mocno palona kawa, w tle delikatny sos sojowy i lekka kwaśność. W smaku mocno wytrawne. Mocno palone, dużo gorzkiej, deserowej czekolady. Finisz to średnia goryczka, pozostawiająca posmak ziaren czekolady. Piwo ok, ale nie jako sweet stout.

martin00sr (2692) - Haderslev, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2015
Black with thick tan head. Roasted aroma, notes of coffee and dark chocolate. Similar flavour. Starts off sweetish and then the long lasting bitterness takes over. Light mouthfeel but still quite flavourful.

TET (2585) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2015
A black beer with an almost medium and light brown head. Aroma has dry roastiness, balancing sweet chocolate, some coffee. Great aroma. Taste has roasted coffee and nice chocolate, dry end. Medium+ bodied, smooth. Quite simple beer but that’s not bothering as the basic elements are balanced. The great beer.

leghorn99 (217) - Livorno, ITALY - JUL 23, 2015
Versa color ebano, impenetrabile; la schiuma è alta due dita, molto densa, di un bel marrone scuro, la ritenzione è buona, che si riduce a un cappello sottile, leggera allacciatura. Aroma di cioccolato fondente, malto tostato, avena, caramello, e melassa; con un po ’di vaniglia e alcol. Alcuni aromi sono molto gradevoli, e dalla buona persistenza. In bocca inizia dolce, cioccolato fondente e farina d’avena, poi; malto tostato, caramello, melassa. Transizione ad un’amarezza decente sul finale, con sapore di caffè. Palato cremoso e liscio, l’alcool riscalda lievemente nel finale. Carbonazione media, ma senza togliere cremosità al palato, corpo medio-pieno.

Bottle. Purchased in fall 2011. Pours black with no head. Nose is licorice, vanilla, soy sauce, hints of bourbon. Mouthfeel is medium heavy. Coffee, cocoa, soy, oak. Very dense and almost no carbonation. Dry, slightly astringent finish. Not bad for a whale.
