Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 10, 2011
Tap @ Johnny Browns. 1st beer of SDBW for me. Pours a deep coffee brown with a small beige ring. Beer was poured way too cold, couldn’t really smell or taste anything at first. After about 20 min of letting the beer warm, things really started to happen. Light oak on the nose, along with some bitter sweet chocolate and roasted malts. Finish was a little thin and disappointing.

Had on tap at Stone total takeover in Baltimore A-pours a dark brown liquid, not quite black, with a caramel colored head. S-big malt sweetness in the nose, notes of coffee and a fair bit of toffee in the back. T-very sweet, lots of ripe dark fruits, plums, with hints of raisins in there as well. light coffee notes and some dark chocolate as well. loads of sweetness with a hint of oxidation. M-medium body, creamy on smooth on the palate with a fair bit of carbonation. D-overly sweet and slightly oxidized with tons of sugar and malt. not undrinkable but not impressive.

On draft at R & H. Very well crafted Brew. Enthralling black pour with medium size beige head. Pleasing aromas of Chocolate, vanilla, and bread. The palette is a perfect blend of roast, chocolate, floral and vanilla. I was left speechless upon my first sip.

On tap at Churchkey. Pours near black with a thin deep tan head. Moderate legs as it goes down. Nose had strong notes of chocolate and fudge alongside a good amount of roast and some coffee. Slightly creamy as well. Taste really brought the flavors together but they were muted compared with the nose. Feel was nice and creamy without much booze. Drank quite well l. The stouts really stole the show at this event. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-05-2010
