On tap at tasting room. Later was drink of choice for entire table at Duckfat. Pretty unique stout. Pours a deep hazy brown/black. Drinks somewhat light bodied for a stout but really smooth. Roasted notes, chocolate and smoke come through. Dried fruits and yeast later. Belgian notes are subtle but add definite interest. Unique.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Meditrina. Black with loud dissipating brown head. Boozy tangy wheaty clovey chocolate aroma. Tangy fruity chocolate sweetness with very heavy raisiny plummy fruitiness and some woody bitterness with lingering chocolaty fruit. Medium-full body. Low carbo. Itís an "icy winterís eve," but this is far from perfect. Mostly unpleasant. Some beer seem good on paper...

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a mug and a weizen. At the time, I was a bit confused as to what style this beer really was.
What was poured into the weizen glass yielded a far larger white foamy head that the mug. Everything else is the same.
The rest of the appearance was a dark brown close to black color. The lacing is the same in both glasses, foamy and thick.
The smell was the same in both glasses, though the banana esters may have lasted longer in the weizen. Thereís a dark roasty chocolate in a stale breadiness.
The taste followed the nose.
On the palate, this one sat right at a medium in body. Sessionable? To me, not exactly as I donít think the flavors really meshed that well.
Overall, out of all the times Iíve had this when I was living in Maine, I could never get into this beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance bonus due to the nitro tap I had this on. Like a roasty creamy beer milkshake. Tasty notes of cocoa and like roasty coffee. I like this quite a bit.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle. Dark pour with some reddish undertones. Aroma is cocoa and some coffee. Much of the chocolate is lost in the taste, it is more like one of those coffees that are described as being fruity, which I canít describe better as I donít really drink strange imported coffee very often. Overall, smelled better than it tasted, kind of an odd mishmash. It worked, but was strange.
