23 ounce bomber shared with a friend. Poured in pint glasses
This pours a jet black with a very 1/2 finger tan head that quickly fades. The thickness of this can be seen from the pour. Smell is full of bourbon, coffee, and chocolate. Very subtle hints of sweetness from the vanilla are noticed as the beer warms. Taste is truly delicious. Even with the high ABV and viscosity this beer never gets old to me. Loads of chocolate, coffee and dark fruits up front. Even with the vanilla being faded with age it is still pronounced on the finish with a nice sticky sweetness left on the palate. Mouthfeel is thick. Overall one of the best stouts I have had. Great job GI.
