750ml bottle of 2013 vintage poured into Surly tulip glass at cellar temp, 54F.
Pours a dark brown, black body, beige head of creamy texture, good retention and lacing.
Smells chocolatey with roast and coffee beans, some dark fruit, and cherries.
Taste is akin to the smell but much more full. Dark fruits and cherries are quite prominent and complement the strong chocolate taste. Coffee and roasted malts present as well. Bitter with a good hop bite, but the hops don't take over at all. Sweet but not cloying. Perfectly balanced. Alcohol is almost undetectable.
Mouthfeel is smooth, creamy, and silky. Medium-to-full body. Dry sticky finish. Extremely drinkable.
This is incredibly tasty and overall is very drinkable. Dark fruits and cherried are very present and it is overall sweet, but is balanced well. This isn't the roastiest stout, but it is one of my all time favorites.
