Chilled 10 Fl. Oz bottle with a funky blue enamel coating. No indication of bottling dates etc. Poured in to a half liter stein.
Pours a deep dark espresso coffee color with only a very slight cola hue when held to the light. The activity of the beer whilst pouring is also note worthy. During the pour the beer is behaves almost as if its flat however once its let to sit the brew generates a relatively huge mass of foamy tan head. Mine measured just on 3 fingers. The head fades away to a lumpy and rocky thick surface coating with plenty of sticky lace left behind to confirm the story.
The aroma swoons with roasted malt. Definite chocolate notes and mild hints of coffee.
Taste focuses initially on a sweet and syrupy coffee flavor. The mocha feature is definitely there and once again that taste of natural and unprocessed dark chocolate balances the palate out nicely. I should also note that the mocha and choc flavors in particular have an almost burnt quality to them.
Medium bodied with a very smooth, earthy and almost grainy mouthfeel. Low carbonation, even though it can generate a very thick and full mass of head. Rich textures and well balanced flavors.
Once again, as I usually add when discussing Stouts, Porters, Belgian Quads etc, this is great for those that appreciate the style. If you haven't had something like this before you are either going to love it and begin a new fascination in rich flavored Porters or you are going to hate this and spit it out.
For me though, this is a very good offering although not exactly top shelf.
