pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - FEB 20, 2013
On draught at Bailey’s Taproom 2/15. Stout with a pleasing sour tinge on the finish and a refreshing yeast character. Adds depth to and evens out the usual stout flavors.

Lightly warming to finish, with some sweet chocolate, candi sugar and well roasted malts. Not bad.

Bottle at Chriso’s Xmas Tasting 2015. It pours darkest brown with a thick beige head. The nose is toasted, earthy, charred wood, burnt treacle, toffee, cacao nibs and dark fruits. The taste is bitter, toasted, earth, woody, spice, warming alcohol, candy sugars, leather, dark fruits and chewy malt with a dry, warming finish. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Interesting and pretty well constructed. Decent.

Medium bodied, slightly spritzy carbonation, semi drying close with light warming alcohol coming into play. Decent enough Belgian stylee stout, drinks well below the ABV.

neepsntatties (1575) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 8, 2015
On draught. Past notes.Colour...nearly black with a thin tan head. Nose...delightfully spicy and decidedly Belgian with dark chocolate and molasses. Palate...creamy, smooth and velvety with gobs of sweet holiday spice and bittersweet Belgian chocolate. The palate is full and quite oily and coating and the molasses comes back for a solid punch on the sweet and boozy finish.
