Aroma is Belgian spices with dark fruits and mild mocha coffee. The darker, dustier flavors emerge when it warms up. The appearance is good head retention atop an uber-cloudy deep purple. The flavor is sugary dates and dark berries. Sour cherry, mocha and hazelnut at the end. Has a puckery red-wine quality. Nutty, malty finish. Improves as it warms up. Silky at first, and then a little fizzy, finishes chunky. Most akin to a Belgian dubbel with the finish of a porter.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2011 Unique bottle. Corked and caged. 750mL, BRC. Dark brown, creamy tan head. Sweet malt aroma, nice wood scent, light spice, dark malt, a touch of cherry wood scent, and some coffee. Dark malt flavor, dark fruit, alcohol, and roasted malt. Tastes like a stout, full of roast. Finishes with a big burn. Definitely not as good as the other Barrel Room Collection, New World Triple, that I’ve had.
My 70th Sam Adams.

Samuel Adams 13th Hour Stout is a very dark brown beer with a thick, creamy, beige head that has awesome retention and lacing. There is wood and spice in the aroma with notes of cinnamon and coffee. It’s full bodied and smooth with a dry, slightly ragged finish. It’s pretty complex and not very sweet. It has flavors of raisins and musk; cinnamon and dark chocolate, almost cherry. It’s followed by a long, bitter coffee aftertaste. It’s very unique.

RSRIZZO (1882) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 25, 2011
750ml. bottle poured into a tulip at 42°. Color is a deep almost black brown with good carbonation and a small soft brown head. Aroma a sweet candy sugar and yeast scent with a light sour brett note in the back. It has a medium body that gives a light crisp mouth feel. Flavor of dried fruits, caramel and a touch of coffee, then some Belgian yeast and a hint of cheery. In the after taste the oak comes out with a light sour note. Overall its a great brew and a well done Belgian strong, but the Stout characters are a little weak.

LyndaNova (532) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 24, 2011
Cold, corked, 750ml bottle: Pours a deep ruby brown color with a medium sized, rocky, tan head that doesn’t last very long. Aroma is of cherries, molasses, plums, coffee and chocolate. Taste is of dark malts well blended with dark fruits (cherries) and subtle, grassy hops. Medium bodied and somewhat fizzy. Ending is lightly sweet with some caramel and chocolate notes. Alcohol is well hidden.

nifty bottle. a black beer with a small tan head. nose is milk chocolate, red fruit, cinnamon, vanilla and touch of sour. a hard one to place in a style. oak comes out a tart/sour red fruit with no vanilla notes. very light notes of cocoa but not sweet. medium body. i don’t get it, but the bottle shape is really cool!
