Bottled 08/2005, cellared for a year.
I've been waiting to try this one, based on recommendations to let it mellow a tiny bit.
Pour a deep mahogany hue, pitch black in the pint glass. Billowing head, irregular bubbles, later subsides but never disappears.
Smell is rich coffee, also a touch sweet. Maybe a lactic note in there too.
Taste lives up to the hype. It's full, rich, and strong. Resiny fair-trade coffee grinds, mixed with a dense roasted malt. Alternately bitter and roasty, with a sweet flash in between. This isn't especially complex, but it's a perfectly symbiotic marriage of coffee and stout. The richness is unsurpassed in my coffee stout experience.
Mouthfeel is full and velvety, lives up to the price tag. No harshness, alcohol is expertly hidden.
Due to it's overwhelming qualities, one bottle is enough in one sitting. Worth trying once in a lifetime...
