On draught. Deep ruby with scant brown head. Aroma of chocolate-flavored coffee. Taste of roasted malt and almonds, toffee late. Roasted chestnut finish, quite long-lasting. Good one, should age quite well.

Tap at the Sunswick. Poured brown with a thin brown head. This had a chocolate and stout nose. Flavor followed along those lines. Kind of a creamy mouthful with a medium body. Finish was slightly bitter. Nice belgian stout.

trevor211 (1533) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Pours a deep, dark reddish brown with a thick, light-tan head. Aroma is port wine with a bit of cabernet sauvignon, other sweet fruits and tart cherries, Belgian yeast and a whole heap of sweet malts. Flavor is pleasantly tart, like a good cab with notes of cherries, molasses and a touch of toasty wood to finish. Mouthfeel is perfect - good carbonation, but silky smooth. Wonderfully complex. I’m very impressed.
