Another excellent gift I got as an anniversary present. Bottled 02/25/11.
A- Pitch black... One of the darkest beers I've seen. Aggressive pour forms just a finger of dark brown head. Head dissipates quickly and leaves a frothy ring that yields slight lacing.
S- Dark chocolate biscotti, bitter mocha, bourbon, vanilla extract. The sweetness is balanced well by the warm bourbon. Inviting.
T- The bitter chocolate and bourbon tastes are dominant in the front. The bourbon is handled very smoothly, and doesn't have a strong bite during transition phase. Instead, a nice coffee taste comes along and eases over into a well-balanced combination of all of the above flavors. This carries into an aftertaste I can best describe as like an irish carbomb.
M- Medium-thick bodied for the style. Zero carbonation - this is a good thing for this beer. Dry, sticky finish - as one would expect from a strong stout.
O- I love this stout. It has all the classic stout flavors one could want, and handles them in a very smooth fashion. Slightly difficult to come across, but if I see this again I'll be buying lots of it.
