  • Pours opaque from the deep blackness of the brew. Mocha colored, creamy foam coats. Retention is above average for a stout with it lasting almost the entire time of the drink. Lacing doesn't exist.

    Aroma is neutral: no dark malt or other associated scents from the style. Plums, dark cherries and maybe even raisins highlight the subdued scent.

    Taste is barrel, aged. Tartness but not much cherries. The tartness hits near the end and stays withe the finish. Lingering but soft dark malts - roast.

    Medium body with medium carbonation, possibly even more. Lots of small bubbles.

    An interesting beer but just not enough. The age might have something to do with it. Don't worry if you didn't get one of the 360, it wasn't a ground shaking offering. Enjoy!
