Thanks to RoyMunson for this.
Poured into an Oversized Wine Glass.
Appearance: Pours with a barely-there tan froth. Lacing is impressive - spotty and long-lasting, wtih some arms and calligraphic patterns. Body is an opaque impenetrable dark brown-black.
Smell: Whoo, this is a formidable stout. A smokey hotness dominates the aroma that is part alcohol, part chipotle peppers. General spiciness. Black pepper. "Dustiness." Old boot leather. Bourbon barrel wood. Slight cream. Slight brown sugar. Slight molasses. Dark and bittersweet chocolates. Turkish coffee. Undeniably complex, but not subtle.
Taste: Bourbon. Smoke. Deep espresso and turkish coffee - more coffee flavor than the nose hinted to, but reveals itself in a wonderfully nuanced and pleasant way. Mmm. The aftertaste is pure roasted coffee beans. Dark chocolate, very little sweetness. Slight vanilla. Wonderful flavors that have some of the most pronounced lastingness of any I've had in a stout. It smacks your mouth around a bit, but rewards it with a lasting, roasty aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Spicy, but coating, and full.
Drinkability: A sipper.
A fantastic stout. The roastiness and barrel wood flavors are absolutely excellent. Extremely balanced while not being overly subtle. Great.
Serving type: bottle
