wow. this is pretty. pours like motor oil- dark, slick, opaque. no light getting through this baby. a pretty milk chocolate colored head stick around for a bit, then fades away, leaving a ring around the glass.
the nose is verrrry inviting. coffee-ed yoohoo, some nice bitter espresso notes. a hint of vanilla. rich hoppy and roasted notes coming through. there's also a smokey bbq kinda thing going on. in short- it smells good.
starts out with a big roasty bitter espresso hit, lots of bitter hoppyness, and that oatmealy flavor you'd expect, followed by, again, a yoohoo sweet malty little burst, and finishes very bitter. alcohol content is notable, but not overwhelming. this falls a liiittle flat for me, to be honest. it's got loads of potential, but it's just not what it could be.
mouthfeel is chewy and wet, a little sudsy.
overall, this is tasty, and i definitely prefer stouts to be bitter rather than on the sweet side- but i'd rather have southern tier's Choklat.
