BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 15, 2015
My boss bought this for me so at least I am not out that money. Everything I hate in Belgian Stouts with wierd medicinal plastic notes and inflected barrel bugs that clash with the yeast spiciness. Uninspired mouthfeel as well. A near drain pour with no coffee nor chocolate notes.

ronaldtheriot (1599) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Samuel Adams Thirteenth Hour has a very thick, spongy, tan head, and a fiercely bubbly, dark brown, almost black, appearance, with good lacing left behind. The aroma is of mild coffee and chocolate, black licorice, dried light fruit, golden raisen, mild oak, and dark-roasted malt. Taste is of those elements, with an odd canned spaghetti sauce or tomato sauce acidity. Bittterness is almost not detected. Some candy sugar and spiced holiday bread or cake is picked up. Mouthfeel is medium, and Samuel Adams Thirteenth Hour finishes spritzy and not so much like a stout at all. RJT

yngwie (15762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2015
Bottle, 75cl corked. A dark brown beer topped by a small, beige head. Perhaps a bit weak aroma, with raisins, dried figs, some chocolate and roasted malts. Some funky, spiced notes too. It’s full-bodied, soft and lightly warming on the palate, with flavors of raisins, dried figs, some brown sugar and roasted malts, and a little touch of chocolate. Nice carbonation level and bitterness that suits the sweetness. Lasting finish. Perhaps a bit too subtle this one, but at least it drinks easy. 150612

Countbeer (5614) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2015
Bottle: Chouffe glass: Deep dark brown beer. Creamy head on top. Aroma is spice, prunes, port, some used port/vinous wood tones, raisin, something sweet I can’t lay my finger on. Flavours of prunes, bitters, toast, dried leaves, spice, nuts, light dry, dried dark fruit, hint of wood... Aftertaste, wood, malt, toast, light prune and bitter tint. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied. Bit boring and miss some soul. Also a bit unbalanced.
