375 ml corked bottle. Black pour with a thinish texture and light pinch of brown head that leaves little bubbles fades pretty fast. Big roast sweet smell, bits of candied sugar. Tast is nice and roasty up front with a very smooth/hoppy finish. Not much Pinot barrel but gawddamn this is smooth and drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours very heavily and oily; utterly opaque black with a brown, thick, fine-grained, almost gelid head. Nose is port wine, oak, smoke, and fresh-ground coffee. Very rich and solid on the tongue -- baking chocolate, ginger, molasses, red wine, and glace viande notes take center stage. Round and rich. A meaty, beefy stout, and a damned good one.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Deep, dark brown. Had to slop it in the glad to get any cap. Once that happened, it was a dense, tan cap that laced heavily. Aroma is huge coffee, dark chocolate, prune, and vanilla. Terrific smell. Taste boasts the coffee and chocolate, with trailing candied dark fruit blend. Pleasant finish of medium carbonation and a lingering, highly dry note.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 375ml bottle. Chocolate, bitter dark chocolate, ash, leather. This smells oxidized, I think it is the barrel. This is very dry.
