Advocate_Ames (635) - Steubenville, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2017 2014 BR1 bottle. Pours dark with dissipating foam head. The foam head is fine and edges my glass. The aroma is rich of dark roasted malts, vanilla, and whiskey. It comes off rather inviting and pleasant on the nose. Tasting, semi bitter roasted malt flavor, medium intensity of sugar sweetness, a mild warm booze of whiskey, and some vanilla creeps thru. The finish reminds me of roasted malts, coffee, and a not intense whiskey flavor that all lingered. Rather good brew. Overall I thought everything blended nicely. I liked the bitterness character very much too. The stout held up with age and goes down smooth. I am enjoying this bottle during an eclipse which seems rather fitting, cheers.

Bottle @Xmas Tasting 30.07.2017. Pours black tan head. Nose licorice, malty, sweet molasses, slight peat. Taste is sweet caramel, slight whisky, very easy drinking for a 10% badboy, its just missing a killer punch.
