4oz sampler -

The waiter brought this as "just the regular stout". I thought it was funny that he chose those words...regular stout...as a description because it was nowhere near as tasty as the Eclips stout. Not bad, just kinda pedestrian. Aroma of toffee, alcohol, roasted malts and a touch of powdered chocolate. Flavor was strong with the alcohol, chocolate powder, roasted malts and a bit of coffee showing up. This is a kind of beer that can benefit from some age, but they serve it up fresh as a daisy.

looks textbook. feels textbook. but there’s something different about this one. less roasted malt and coffee flavors. more molasses? chicory? chocolate and dark fruit. makes for a unique tasty brew, but i do like Eclipse better. Big and thick, though the abv is well covered. worth a try."

Oscbert (1054) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Rich roasty malts of cocoa, coffee, tobacco tar as well as dark fruit like prune. Pours black with wispy brown head Strong roasty malty flavors same as aroma and raisins pruney maltiness Full bodied, low co2, alcohol warmth, lingering burnt charred flavor. A bit on the roasty side for my preference. I like dark fruity imperial stouts. Still enjoyable night cap ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
