A dark Belgian-style stout with notes of spice, coffee, chocolate & oak The 13th Hour Is The Witching Hour and a time when strange brews can occur With 13 ingredients, we combine the roasted chocolate and coffee notes of a stout with the complex spicy character of a Belgian-style ale aged in oak for a dark, robust, and bewitching brew.

AshtonMcCobb (4996) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 12, 2015
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - close to opaque black with a thin head. Nose - coffee bean and earthiness. Taste - smoke, tar salty liquorice. Palate - medium bodied with a dry tangy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - definitely very gnarly. Interesting but a bit too challenging.

jsporrer (527) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Pours a deep brown with a good sized light brown head that disappears quickly. Nice aroma of dark chocolate and fruity malts. Very smooth. Lots of fruitiness and a hint of chocolate flavor with some mild spices. Nothing too over powering yet very enjoyable taste. Similar to a good Belgian ale. Not too oily like some other stouts, just smooth and refreshing. Great to just sip and savor the subtle flavors.

McNeillR (2147) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 6, 2015
Clear dark woody varnish brown, no real head - slim bubbled ring - wink of lacing. Nose is kola cubes, worn socks, dusty and softly spicy. Fizzy enough, greasy nutty malt and finishes very bright lemony good times. Finishes clean, oddly sweet lemon tea (as has a lot this evening...) and linger is clean bright spicy.

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.

deyholla (9835) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Sampled from the bottle at the Oklahoma Craft Beer Festival. Pours a clear dark amber brown with a yellowish brown head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a decent amount of roasted malts with some chocolate and dark grains. Flavor has notes of dark grains and roasted malts with a bit of dark fruit.

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
