A: Great pour with a large 3 finger head that slowly settled to lace the glass after a few minutes. Oh it is black.
S: Nice blend of roasted coffee and chocolate. Probably my favorite part of this beer.
T: This is where I wasn't too happy. At this point, I'm not surprised that the coffee is almost completely gone (being over a year old), but I was quite overwhelmed with the sweetness from the chocolate/sugar. I wonder if they used any lactose (pure or in the chocolate)... regardless, it was too sweet for me and I would have preferred more balance.
M: Good. I like a slightly thicker mouthfeel, but I have no big qualms with this medium-bodied stout.
D: Well, I was ready to be done with it halfway through, but I did finish the bottle. Again, it was just too sweet. Alcohol was very well hidden though. Would never guess it was >8%.
While let down by all the hype, I realize this bottle is a year old. I'm excited to try a fresh bottle next week to see how it compares!
