22 oz bottle. Dark brown with a smattering of tan froth. Nose is musty overripe peach and strawberry, wood, bubblegum, cinnamon and spearmint; crazy. Medium light with faint carb. Taste is green plum, red wine, cinnamon and vanilla caramel. Finishes with grapefruit pith and bitter mocha. I would have never guessed this was a stout.

Wow. Thanks to goryshkewych for hooking me up with this bomber. Pours dark brown with tan head. Nose is coffee, vanilla, cinnamon, malt, roast, earth, spices, and depth. Flavor is medium-bodied roasty malt character with coffee, vanilla, cinnamon, and some earthy spiciness lingering into the finish. Wonderfully deep and complex beer. Keep going with more like this one, Brad.

Another great one thanks to markwise. Pours clear mahogany with copper edges and brief tan head. The aroma is sweet rich molasses, black strap molasses, chocolate, coffee, burnt malts and a touch of caramel. The taste is a bit thin but itís also rich with molasses, coffee, caramel, burnt malts and some malt roastiness. This is very nice and ends with the addition of a touch of dry roastiness.
