COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
SEDUCTIVELY SMOOTH Our brewers have poured their hearts and roasted malts into this rich, slightly sweet stout. Luscious notes of coffee and chocolate accent the smooth, creamy mouth feel. We will not apologize for any amorous affairs resulting from the consumption of this beverage

Very dark brown color, coffee aroma, silky, creamy mouthfeel, not what I expected.

What does Dogbrick know about prunes? This had a strong coffee flavor and finish, also a nice little bite for a stout. Good - above average stout.

Thanks to urbnhautebourg for providing this beer. I tried it after Victory Storm King, and while not on the same level it was still a decent brew. Pours a deep dark brown with a medium dark beige head. Earthy coffee/chocolate aroma. Not sure what oysters brought to the table but I am always for something different. Had a bottle-conditioned texture, with coffee, chocolate and prunes (?) in the flavor. Rather sharp finish. Not too bad.

On tap, GABF 02: Deep roasted chocolate. creamy mouthfeel. Loses a bit of taste at the end, but otherwise a solid stout.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2003 Update: I must take this one down a notch. My most recent samples have been watery and lacking in flavor. A shadow of what I had experienced before. Old: Really wonderful nose of berries and asphalt, beige head and deep brown body. Rather nice floral malt opening which goes thin for a moment, then perks up with chocolate and coffee flavors, drying out slowly with grain. Unusual, a taste all its own.

A very good bottle conditioned stout. Pours decently, head does not stick around too long however. Laces nicely throughout the glass. Big burnt chocolate aroma taste which changes over to coffeish in the finish. Not used to seeing sediment in the bottom of a glass of stout, but excellent none the less. Could be a little creamier. I hope to get a tap tasting on this one.
