Bottle @ Beer, Bocce and Boozer tasting. Deep brown color with a modest, creamy tan head. The aroma’s of dark grape, balsamic vinegar, charred wood. The taste is toasty, vinous. Quite sweet. Some bitter chocolate. The mouthfeel’s a bit thin. Soft carbonation. Overall, quite pleasant.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2013 Full-bodied dark beer with creamy brown head. Well-balanced and tasty, though average stout. Aroma of roasted malts and some dark chocolate. The malts and chocolate come back in the taste along with some coffee.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very good brown-beige head over nearly black beer. Faint chocolate, lightly roasted, cypress, dark green leaves (and ditto malts). Sweet, slightly roasted, active carbon, sweetness building up in the finish, with upcoming woodiness and nutty flavours. Very slick, medium to well-bodied, and generally quite well-balanced. Rather excellent, very well-balanced stout, one to cherish again.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
ABT beer of the month February ’11. Stout isn’t my favorite style, but sometimes i enjoy them. Didn’t enjoy this one much. Bit of a metallic, rusty smell and taste. Could use a bit more roasty malts.
