TH28 (394) - - NOV 4, 2016
12oz bottle. 8/23/16 bottle date. Appearance: Black, opaque, with a low brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma: Sweet chocolate, some bread crust, a light roasted coffee edge with a touch of cream. Overall aroma is low in intensity. Taste: Starts with bittersweet dark chocolate, followed by some bread crust, then turning to light coffee roast and moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy body with a velvety creaminess. Low carbonation. Finish: Leaves a dry, bitter, light roast. Overall: A very well balanced sweet stout that is a nice blend of chocolate, toast, and coffee with a creaminess that softens the roast and bitterness

RedSox2004 (1713) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - OCT 22, 2016
Deep black with slight mahogany highlights, one-finger mocha head that dissipates quickly and oily lace. Aromas of roasted malts with dark bittersweet chocolate, wood and hints of dark fruit. Complex flavor profile starts with roasted malt that quickly gives way to bittersweet dark chocolate, powdered cocoa, and a dark fruit note. Burnt toast, roasted coffee and cream make appearances. Full body, minimal carbonation, slick mouthfeel and a bitter chocolate/coffee finish.
