Growler served at fridge temp.
A- Pitch black body with a dark brown head. Really tiny bown bubbles.
S- Rich, coffee with sweet chocolate undertones, the kind of aroma you would expect in a chocolate, coffee oatmeal stout lol. The aroma is deep though...very, very rich coffee with slight caramel and toffee with a touch of a roasted quality.
T- Dark chocolate takes a front seat. It's a bitter dark chocolate with perhaps some bitterness comming from the hops. Roasted coffee does come through but the bitterness makes it seem more like espresso. Some hop flavor does manage to shine through as well. There is a bit of a grassy hop flavor hidden in there.
M- Perfection. Full bodied with perfect carbonation. So smooth but finishes perfectly bitter from the combo of coffee and hops. Velvety, very smooth, and extremely drinkable for almost 9% alcohol.
O- Really well crafted beer. Very drinkable and all of the flavors are so well balanced. As it warms everything really comes through. Just plain awesome, I've had this beer for both breakfast and dessert and it has never disappointed. Really great on a cold night as well.
