Poured gently down the middle of a Guinness Stout glass.
Black with 1 finger milk chocolate head of dense foam. Little lace but a nice layer of foam that lasts and lasts.
Smells of malt, roast, coffee, prunes, yeast, and hops. Wonderfully inviting aroma.
Sweet and bitter at the same time. Malt richness and hop bite with some smoke flavors along with coffee, chocolate, and some dark grain bitterness. Complex and very tasty. Aftertaste as good as the front, but where the front is more bitter the back is more balance. Can not detect the alcohol even at over 8%.
Full bodied, but not overpowering, smooth, rich and creamy, but with an effervescent fizz. This is what stout should be.
Inviting, refreshing, interesting and intriguing all at the same time. You want more as soon as you pour the first, but be careful. It may not taste it, but it's still a powerful brew!
