12 oz into a Duvel tulip, right to the letters. Tan head on top of a black body rises as high as a Duvel would. Great glass for capturing the nose of this heady stout. The nose is super complex and delightful. Coffee, chocolate, malt, bitterness. Incredible. One of the best stout noses around. Perfect. Masterful. Taste follows up with more awesomeness. Bitter with a solid backbone of sweetness. Well balanced too. This is an absolutely amazing beer. Mouthfeel could be a little more energetic, although my pour was pretty aggressive. I might revise the mouthfeel up after my second glass. Overall, highly recommended, one of the best stouts I've ever had and the best with the particular additions they made, coffee, chocolate...sometimes these additions ruin a stout and you wonder why the brewer didn't just make a great simple stout. Not in this case. Incredible brew.
