4.47/5 rDev -1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: 12oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. Even with a hard pour, only 1/2 to 1 finger head forms, pleasantly cafe-au-lait in color. Deep black color. No light comes through whatsoever. No lacing to speak of.
S: Coffee overwhelms everything. Small, small amounts of chocolate, but dark chocolate if anything. A perfect smell for a stout.
T: Again, a ton of coffee with a slight sweetness coming through. Hops are prevalent, but not overwhelming, as is alcohol. The flavor lingers, burnt malt and coffee most of all.
M: Thick, creamy, but pleasantly drinkable. Definitely covers your tongue, targeting the taste buds toward the back.
O: Fabulous. As a Michigander, I'm ashamed to say that this is my first time experiencing this beer. A revelation, truly a gold standard for stouts produced today. If one drawback, the chocolate doesn't come through quite enough, but I suppose I'm just nit picking. So glad I have 3 more for the weekend.
