3.98/5 rDev -11.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Purchased Nov. 24, 2010, consumed Nov. 26, 2010.
12 oz. poured into old fashioned glass (not optimal)
8.3%, 60 IBUs
Appearance - inky, black, opaque, with a mocha brown head that dissipates into a patchy disk and leaves some lacing.... A solid looking stout, but not quite the lasting head I really like to see.
Smell - Coffee dominates the nose with a hint of chocolate in the background (as far as I can tell, no discernible hop presence)
Taste - Coffee again dominates, but there is a fair amount of chocolate presence (like a dark bittersweet chocolate). There is a slight bitterness on the back end. It reminds me of taking a sip of black coffee and then having a bite of dark chocolate. Very nice.
Mouthfeel - Nice and chewy for the ABV (from the oatmeal?). Medium to low carbonation (on par with the style)
Drinkability - This is a very nice coffee stout, but it didn't blow me away like I had hoped.
