2011 vintage in 750ml ceramic fliptop bottle. Into standard pint.
A: small mouth forced a fairly agressive pour. Came out SUPER thick and black. Got 2 fingers of frothy rich mocha head. Head is falling to a thick cap and leaving sheets of lace. May as well try to look through a wall, I bet more light gets through than this beer.
S: a tad fruity actually, odds are from the high alcohol. Dark fruits and rich roasty notes. Not much chocolate though. Some coffee notes in there too.
T: roasty toasty goodness. big coffee flavor, a little sweet, a little bit of that dark fruit (raison and currant). Finishes mighty bitter with a big hard hit of hops.
M: thick and rich but thinned down by the high alcohol. Just right on carbonation.
O: good stuff, glad its in a big bottle. Glad I got this. All around a good stout.
Serving type: bottle
