TAR (2708) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - MAR 1, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2011 Deep ebony. Gentle pour produces a healthy caramel cap of foam. Rich espresso, cocoa, and burnt malt-hull aromatics are dotted with notes of phenols, vanilla and plum. Fluffy and expressive carbonation. Airy and cottony roast links up with snug char and a surge of tarry espresso and dry cocoa. Bright burst of plum heightens drinkability as it beautifully offsets the dryness and brasher roast elements, further deepening the luscious milk chocolate and butter toffee malt underbelly. Alcohol warmth is felt slightly in the belly, but is masterfully cloaked. Perceptible char-derived acidity remains subtle enough so as not to not blemish the rich, well-layered malt. Silky yet slightly ashy finish graces a late smoky espresso flourish. Not much to complain about here. A rich, focused, and nicely balanced "bigger" stout.

Muy rica, aroma dulce, chocolate tostado, algo licoroso. Sabor chocolate cacao amargo, buena base de malta con algo de caramelo, final seco, amargor leve bien integrado. Cuerpo medio y carbonatacion media, sabor persistente en el tiempo. Una cerveza muy potente para tener 6,5% alcohol...

From a 355ml bottle on 19/10/2016. Pours close to black with a small head. The nose is roasty and nutt, with a bit of vanilla.. The flavour features dark chocolate with hints of caramel, coffee and vanilla, along with some mild vinous notes. The bitterness is quite sharp with some burnt character to it. Full bodies with moderate carbonation. A solid enough stout.
