4.08/5 rDev -1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
16.9 oz bottle poured into sam smith imperial pint appearance: pitch black with a nice tan/cocoa colored head that stuck for 15 minutes and hardly moved after poured, impressive, carbonation started out aggressive and fizzy when i began the pour and then settled into a nice pillowy covering
smell: As i was pouring the first thing that jumped out was piney, floral hops which i wasnt expecting, after reading about the cascade/centennial presence it makes a lot of sense, coffee, milk its all there
taste: very very heavy on the palate, super heavily roasted bitter malt flavor is backed with more bitter espresso and a coffee finish that lasts and lasts and lasts. Some of that grassy hop characteristic makes it on the the palate, maybe some rose water flavors in there, these are definitely undertones, this beer is much more than just straight rich and coffee, yumm
overall: really complex and enjoyable stout, i would like to see how this one ages but at this price point ill buy haandbaak every time, more for flavor preference then quality of beverage this is an excellent sipper for a cool evening
Serving type: bottle
