UPDATED: JAN 20, 2015 750 ml shared with dad that he bought at the brewery A: red fruits, cherries/vinous, chocolate, roasted notes, spices. App: black beige head. T/p: med body with moderate long acidic finish. Moderate too high carbonation. O: great. A bit surprised by this sourness on that one. An interesting sip you can’t feel the 9% at all

Poured from the bottle into a glass. Pours a dark brown with a foamy white head. Aroma consists of dark fruits, chocolate, Belgian yeast, and bubblegum. Taste has a sour feel too it with a lot of focus on the yeast. Medium bodied beer with heavy carbonation and a chewy mouth feel. I was not a big fan of this beer.

Samuel Adams Thirteenth Hour Stout is probably the best of the bunch (Barrel Room Collection). Pours dark and flat -- not a hint of fizz. Moderate aroma of oak and bourbon. Mouthfeel is thick and syrupy. Taste has notes of smooth bourbon without being too boozy mixed with caramel and a hint of coffee and chocolate notes. Thirteenth Hour is a pleasant pour although you may not think stout when you drink it.

Bottle. Brown pour with off white head. Smells of slight dark malts, sweet and a little sour. Wouldn't have guessed this was a stout. Slight sour after taste. Different but not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cherry boozy. Spicy musty. Looks fine. Brown. Like legit brown. Taste is spicy. Hebacious. Not really roasty. Cherry. Medicinal. Palate is light and dry. Overall tastes like drinking bitters. So hebacious. Not balanced to me.

Cherry aroma with lots of belgian yeast, spice, dark fruit from malt, appealing aroma of fruit and yeast Pours black with frothy lasting small yellowish head Cherry flavored with chocolate, spice, light roast, sourness. Medium bodied with medium co2, quick sour finish, dry. Interesting and complex beer. Enjoying this one. Would buy again to drink with a friend ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NikkTwist (1926) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Draft at Moriartys. Black pour. Slight head of off-white foam. Clean chocolate liquorice stout with a notable amount of dark red fruit. Blackberries. Plums. Dark chocolate covered cherries. Black jelly beans. Some molasses. Bit sweet. Bit tart. Enough drying wood tannins to dry out the finish.

[6142-20140121] Bottle. Fruity wood aroma. Hazy, dark brown cola body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Fruity wood citrus peel flavour has a fruity coffee finish. Medium-full body. A bit odd. (7/3/6/3/13) 3.2

voyageurmike (132) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Served from growler in tulip glass. Dark ruby with thin head, more carbonated than typical stouts. Licorice/chocolate nose, pleasant enough. Tart fruit notes within the taste, somewhat cloying. Thin body for this style, but not watery. The long finish is that cloying part of the flavor that hangs around too long for this to be a great beer.
