Black Sun Stout

Thanks go out to Brian for sharing this at The Brick Store on a recent Friday afternoon. 22oz bomber. Several of us tried the contents with mixed reviews.
Great looking pour which offered much temptation. Jet black body with a decent milk chocolate colored head. Looks good.
Tastes are very typical for the style, and to be honest I thought it hit all the spots pretty well. The only problem we had was that this was a year old bottle. The effect of the aging seemed to see it taper-off quite badly in the finish, leading to a watery ending with no presence. There were some signs of oxidation too.
Mild roastiness, very little alcohol and a few, dry, Baker’s (cooking) chocolate notes.
I enjoyed this, but I would have been happier with a fresher bottle – one to re-vsit in the future hopefully.
