11.2oz bottle poured into my handy tulip.
Pitch black pour with a light mocha head. Only a fingers worth of head, with moderate lacing.
This is one seductive mistress. Strong sweetness on the nose, near bourbon quality. Mild fruity hints in the background, somewhat like maraschino cherry. Coffee bitterness is well balanced, and hidden. Alcohol, what alcohol. A bit cloying as it warms.
For a coffee stout, this has a ridiculous amount of malt backing. Coffee flavor is throughout, giving a nice bitterness that resonates underneath the roasted sweet malt. Fruit esters come back into play again, giving a nice cherry note. Well balanced, and very seducing.
Mildly creamy body, moderate carbonation, no alcohol noticeable throughout the sipping. My word, this is one inviting and deceiving mistress. Tread lightly.
