22 oz. bomber with no freshness date poured into a Lion Stout mug on 12/29/2010
Clear and dark brown with a big dark mocha head. Good head retention and kickass lacing! Very very inviting.
Soft chocolate notes, some sweet malts and perhaps some coffee like sharpness. Weak.
Mildly sweet, grainy, and coffee like at the beginning, yielding quickly into a strongly bitter, roasty, acidic and astringent finish. A very nice stout experience. Some hop flavor as well in the intensely roasty-bitter-coffee aftertaste. It's better than what sometimes gets passed off as "Imperial", and yet is way lower in alcohol.
Medium body and medium carbonation. More harsh than silky, not that I mind!
Great drinkability, lots of flavor and low ABV. What else do you want?
