4.13/5 rDev -0.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
1 pint 6 oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip.
Appearance - Perfectly opaque black body. Light brown two-finger head with tons of retention and low stick.
Smell - Tons of chocolate. Dark roasted coffee bean. Sweet and bitter.
Taste - Each sip seems different from the last. Moderate to light hop bitterness throughout. Pretty hoppy for a stout. Coffee and chocolate. A bit metallic. Faint lactic creaminess in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium bodied. Somewhat creamy texture that is dominated by a solvent finish.
Overall Drinkability - Amorphous on the palate. I started off liking it, then decided after several sips that it wasn't all that great after all. Few more sips and I thought it was brilliant. I haven't ever had this hard of a time coming up with an overall score for a beer. Definitely an interesting brew. Worth trying.
