Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Received as an extra in a trade with D13Logan - thanks a lot!
Pretty much jet black, even when held up to a light. Little to no head with just a thin layer of foam on the top. Not much carbonation. A nice lacing is left on the glass as you drink it.
Strong bourbon and vanilla. Not much of a coffee smell, but it's there. Fairly strong alcohol presence.
Tastes like it smells, strong bourbon and vanilla. The coffee taste is much stronger than the smell and I'm also tasting chocolate. Good presence of alcohol that leaves a nice burn on your lips. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Great beer for the colder nights - it's definitely warming me up. The amount of bourbon taste in this beer is perfect, not too overpowering at all. Stronger presence of caramel as it warms.
Definitely a sipper at a little over 11% abv. The many flavors do a good job at masking the alcohol though. This beer is just so damn tasty it would be easy to drink a few.
Truly a standout. Not much else to say, but as it says on the bottle, this beer "is good for everything a stout ought to be good for."
