4.35/5 rDev -1.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
330ml bottle, served in a trusty Delerium Tremens goblet
Served more or less at room temp
Pours with a typically rich thick crude oil blackness, not as opaque as other stouts and it has a bit more viscosity. Rich creamy leather tan head followed by acres of patchy lacing all over the inside of the glass
Smell, rich sweet esters tinged with tonnes of rich coffee and sticky caramel. Strong whiffs of good cognac and rum soaked raisins. A hint of turkish delight and rose water along with more rich espresso aromas, a hint of oily cigar smokiness and a touch of freshly baked bread
Taste, initially rich esters followed by a flood of silky smooth rich coffee beans. Warming alcohol also but a deceiving 9.5% abv, it drinks very well and smoothly. Rich toffee and caramel, some nice chalky dryness on the finish.
A stunning big bold stout, on par with many I've had before however this has a stronger and more prevelant rich coffee bitterness

4.63/5 rDev +5.2%

A thick black pour into my tulip glass, minimal head and a bit of sloppy lacing left behind. The smell is coffee up front with hints of cocoa and vanilla.
The flavor is a dark roasted coffee, sweet milk chocolate makes it tastes like a latte.. Hints of vanilla and oak are present but that dark roasted malt bill is unbelievably tasty. Medium to full body with low to medium carbonation.
This is a fantastic beer and I'll be pick up some more when I see some! Been wanting to try it for a while and finally found it in NYC - glad It was as good (actually better) as I expected.
