Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Dogfish snifter.
A - midnight black with the consistency of Castrol motor oil. Thick, creamy head the color of milk chocolate. Ton of lacing on the glass.
S - burnt coffee, espresso, and dark chocolate pouring out of this one. Hard to find any hop presence due to the overwhelming nature of the coffee.
T - bitter chocolate and fresh ground espresso roast. Some malty and toffee with a wonderfully long chocolate finish. Not all all boozy at 8+%.
M - full bodied, mild carbonation, extremely well balanced and drinkable.
O - this is what a coffee stout should be. Although the coffee and chocolate are intense, they're not overwhelming. There's nothing "one note" about the flavor profile as everything works well together. FBS continues to be my yardstick for this beer style.
