squarta (68) - - FEB 15, 2012
Si presenta con un nero impenetrabile e una schiuma densa e stretta, spessa non pi di qualche decimo di millimetro. Laroma di quelli importanti, che tradisce la sua natura di stout tutta dun pezzo dal forte aroma di caff. Una volta in bocca pare quasi di bere del fumo da tanto evidente la tostatura e il sapore di caff si affaccia prepotentemente. Il corpo rimane sorprendentemente leggero per una birra cos importante mentre nella chiusura riemerge una nota di liquirizia che si mescola ad un amaro non eccessivamente pronunciato.

Bottled. A deep red beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has notes of chocolate, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of vegetables, roasted malt, burnt bread, and wood, leading to a dry vegetable finish.

Nickls (2428) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUL 2, 2010
(Old BA rate - bottle) It take a more vigorous pour to get the head to develop, but once it does its fairly nice; bubbly tannish head with solid retention. Chocolate brown hue with hints of ruby around the edges. Slight hint of coffee at first in the aroma thats followed by a dark fruitiness; some sweetness; not really all that roasted, but nice. The flavor has a sharp coffee character that moves really quickly into a sourishness, almost like eating a raw cranberry without the berriness; some hint of that fruit comes in, not sure whats going on here, but its all over the place and not very pleasant. Coffee grinds finish things out....not good at all. MF is a little slick and medium in general. This is tough going down, and not sure if I can do the whole bottle. Going to be a challenge. Cant help but think that somethings wrong...or maybe this just isnt a good brew (best before date checks out).
