A great looking stout. Black as a starless night in the Darkness goblet. A nice tan coloured head, a finger thick (would have been more except the volume of the glass caused me to take it easy at the end of the pour) with excellent retention. Nice, sticky, thin sheets of lace. This is a beautiful looking brew.
A nice nose on this one too. Creamy nougat, roasted malts, dark roasted coffee, a hint of anise, and earthy hops.
Wow, this is a tasty and incredibly rich brew. Creamy caramel nougat meets a good dose of earthy, rich dark roast coffee. Roasted malts hint at bittersweet chocolate and a whisp of smoke. A hint of anise appears near the finish before the earthy hops reminiscent of decaying leaves are revealed.
This is big on coffee as well as a rich, nougaty accompaniment. Almost full bodied and quite mildly carbonated, as it should be. Almost more coffee than roasted malts, which is surprising, but quite satisfying to this coffee lover. A very well crafted brew, with an interesting balance that is slightly coffee forward.
This is going down pretty easy considering just how big this beer is. A great treat on this bitter, windy winter night. I could knock a few of these back quite easily in one sitting, although the alcohol would catch up to me sooner rather than later. It does reveal itself with a palate and belly warming quality that is just what this bag of bones needs on this frigid winter solstice. Highly recommended for fans of coffee stouts. Im glad i have a few more bottles of this one to enjoy later when the mood strikes. It wont be too long.
