Bought this bottle in July 2011 @ Nikki’s Liquors in Providence, RI, forgotten about it until today going over my aged bottles in my basement. Tan head, some mild lace in a snifter. Medium to a nearly full body. The aroma is sweet and very roasted with notes of alcohol, wood, and dark chocolate. Flavor mirrors the nose with some liquor flavors. Some coffee bitterness and a dry finish. Overall, well-made stout. And nearly as good as the Imperial version from this brewery. olio (10695) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 12, 2012
Draught @ Ølfestival Kobenhavn.MartinT (10155) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2012
Pours pitch black color with small beige head. Aroma of mild vegetable notes, some chocolate, sourish ripe fruits, ash, english malts and some hints of coffee. Flavor of dark berries, mild chocolate, hints of coffee and some mild vegetables. Creamy smooth palate, fruity and malty finish.
My Bottom Line:beerbuzzmontreal (3486) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 2, 2013
This vanilla-laden Sweet Stout possesses some roasted coffee bean angles to add depth to a prevalent candied fruitiness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam dwindles to a veil over the darkest brown.
-Malts also offer toasted edges.
-The prevalent fruitiness is also redolent of licorice.
-Sweet coffee reaches the finish, accompanied by light roasty bitterness.
-The creamy mouthfeel, its smooth richness and soft carbonation accentuate this Stout’s sweet heart.
-Those who like Cigar City’s propensity for dessert flavors would like this a lot.
Black pour with a medium tan head. Interesting aroma of roasted malt, coacoa and fruits. Very good flavor of roasted malt that feels a bit like coffee and fruits. There’s not much of a bitterness in the end. The body is medium with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. This is a very well-made stout. humlelala (1375) - DENMARK - OCT 6, 2013
(50 cl bottle from supermarket; BBD: May 15th 2015) Pours black with medium, creamy tan head. Decent retention and beautiful lace. Aroma is roasted malt with notes of dark fruit and a hint of dust. Creamy texture, medium body, soft carbonation and a roasted, slightly sweet finish. Flavour largely follows the nose with less dust and more dark fruit and roasted malt. Quite pleasant.
