From a bottle into a pint glass. Centimeter of brown cream, mash head. Nice thick lace clings still on the glass.
The smell of good cold coffee. Ripe black figs, and malt.
Dry on the tongue from start to finish. The sweetness is subdued by the dryness. Molasses, fig, good black rum, hops. Warm alcohol, and bourbon in the finish as the stout warmed.
I wanted something to chew on tonight, and got it with this fine malt. All I can picture is this brew coming out of a old dark stained sticky cask on a whaling ship. I believe I have taken a hour to finish this pint. It lingers on the tongue like a cigar from the night before, in a good way. Spectacular.
