4.71/5 rDev +4.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Pitch black with a thin layer of soft mocha-colored head. Very little retention. The head becomes a pencil thin outline around the glass and some swirls in the center. Very little visible carbonation and lacing. Looks like a tall glass of black coffee
Aroma: Rich milk and dark chocolate. Freshly roasted coffee. Some lactose sugar. A subtle earthy hop background. Smells fantastic. More like dessert than breakfast
Taste: Roasted coffee bitterness takes the reigns here. Chocolate shines through occasionally - sometimes sweet, sometimes bittersweet. The oats provide some sweetness but this is more of a bitter brew than the nose would lead me to believe. Not overly bitter just more than I was expecting. Some earthiness, but hard to put my finger on. A little smoky. Faint citrusy hops in the background that are almost completely hidden by the coffee flavor. Really nice. I think it just about lives up to the hype
Mouthfeel: Very smooth with only the littlest bit of alcohol warmth. Rich and silky. Robust and full-bodied.
Overall: This is a fantastic stout. An awesome dessert beer. If I had the money to buy a case every time it was released I would do so just to have it available. A must try for any stout fan. A real treat even 6 months after the bottle date
Serving type: bottle
