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.

750ml, from 3 bottle box set, poured into tulip glass

Aroma: chocolate, citrus, sour, woody,

Appearance: black, tan head

Taste: medium sour, light bitter

Palate: Medium to full body, sticky texture, average carbonation, bitter finish

Overall: I was expecting something with more roasted and chocolate malts combined with various Belgian spices (coriander, etc.). Stout tastes sour, like sour milk with subtle hints of chocolate, but spices are even more subtle. I had high exceptions of this after really enjoying the New World Tripel, but this isnít bad, just not what I expected.

Pours a deep brownish black from the bottle worth thin bubbly tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is slight sour acetic over chocolate and roast. Taste is slightly sour chocolate milk, sweet and lactic, Belgian yeast and spicy esters over take as it warms the back of your tongue.

100th rating! Pours a dark copper from the bottle. Aroma is of dark chocolate, cherry, and some slight citrusiness. Flavor is chocolate and...A1 sauce I swear! A little vinegary, a fair amount of sweetness. I feel like this was trying to choose between a Belgian ale and an imperial stout and wasnít able too. Good beer.

dliberto (216) - Hampstead, Maryland, USA - JAN 16, 2015
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
