The beer pours into my 25cl tulip glass with an opaque black color and a thin, brown-tinged, tan colored head. The aroma is a mix of chocolate notes, richly fruity / molasses-like rum notes with lots of roast coffee aromatics and a deep, toasted grain note towards the finish. Rich, expressive dark chocolate notes play a big role here as does a big, darkly, almost burnt, whole grain toast character. As the beer warms up I get a nice mix of dark fruit aromatics, Rum-character, Brandy-like notes and a solid, burnt raisin note. This has a nice, fairly complex nose to it.

Roast flavors dominate in the mouth much more than they did in the aroma. This has a bitter, blackened, leaning towards charcoal, grain note to it in the finish as well as a lingering, toasted, whole grain note. This has quite a bit of astringency in the mouthfeel from all the roast grain, but it is fairly rich, which helps to mitigate this just a bit.

This started out pretty interesting; the aroma is much more expressive and complex than the flavor is. The flavor comes off a bit too harsh, though it is still reasonably tasty.

Served In: Tulip

Nice dark pour on this with a small tan head that dissapates quickly.

Nice roasty, malty, bitter chocolate smell on this one.

Taste is more bitter then I expected with a good bitter chocolate taste that hangs with you. The roasted smell is also prominent in the flavor and there is a hint of smokiness here.

This beer is thinner then I thought it would be, still a nice smooth beer with ample carbonation, but the thickness is a little light IMO.

Overall, as this beer warms, it gets better, I was able to get over my inital expectations and really enjoy this beer for waht it was.

Price: $15.50 Served In: Snifter

Thanks to OC for this brew> :cheers:

Bottle #184 of 912

A- Very dark, thick pour. Nice creamy darkish tan head. Settles nicely into a thin layer on the brew.

S- Very roasty, and almost a sweet smell to it. Some alcohol in the background, but the campfire smell is the dominate factor.

T- Very flavorful. The roast, smokeiness come through on the taste as well. Very nice. Something is sweet in the finish. licorice? Just sweet malts? Very solid and well rounded flavor.

M- Very good mouthfeel.

O- The best of the three I have tried, and a solid IMp stout on it's own merit. :cheers:
