This beer is most definatly not retired. On tap at the dutch pours a jet black with nice foamy head. Full body with nice roast and chocolate. Well balanced with hints of flower. Yum.

Botella de 33cl que he probado gracias a Homosibaris celler cerveces en Barcelona. Color negro con unos 2 dedos de espuma marrón que desaparece en un par de minutos dejando una capa sutil mas clara. Aroma a café, a malta tostada y un final muy dulce.

Bottle:   Yep, thats black, frothy beige head, fairly nice lacing.   Roasted/burnt malt nose, coffee,
lactose sweetness.   Sweet roasty malted flavors on the tongue, minor coffee bean, also lactose.   Mild hop
bitterness as well.   Not as sweet as others, likely because of the hops.   Otherwise faint astringency.
Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Not as silky as I would have liked, likely because it could stand to be a bit
maltier.   As its its decent, middle of the road American made Foreign Stout.

From an old scrap of paper rating note: black/brown pour with small tan head. Aroma of tobacco, chocolate, cereal and nuts. Nice sticky chocolate taste balanced with coffee bitter. Roasty. Had a cereal vibe.

Pours thick black with off white head, aroma has notes of toffee, molasses, dark fruit, some anise, smoke and bitter roast notes. Taste is nice coffee, caramel, chocolate and roast going into smoke, molasses and some dark fruit finishing fairly bitter.

Draft. Nearly black. Pepper is subtle in the arpma but more evident in the taste, but subtle and balanced enough to be very enjoyable. Body is a bit too light.

A great brew, drank the heck out of it fresh, and have continued to enjoy it with some age. Its a great dry fresh beer with a malty, toasted taste. If you run across this on tap or by chance in a store, grab it up!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A pretty solid beer with some sweet darker fruits and a rich chocolate characteristic. It’s got some good things going for it but the back end is a bit harsh and astringent. Has held up remarkably well for a beer that is closing in on two years old.
