Beautiful raven black-colored ale. Towering, creamy, coffee-bean colored head that is opaque with a dull metallic shimmer upon pouring from the tap. Turns to a creamy light tan color after a few seconds. Exceptional retention. Sticks to the glass with each sip.
Aromas of bold coffee, smoked maple and roasted almonds flood the nostrils and lure me in.
Excellent roasted barley character boasting bold coffee notes, smokey flavors and dark chocolate. Hops come to life with a spicy pine-like bitterness that compliments the smoked wood flavor. Just a hint of molasses sweetness. Bitter overall character.
Medium to full-bodied feel. Solid level of carbonation brings the flavors to the palate. Bread-like texture from the oats without being too thick. Provides a feeling of warmth that is uncharacteristic of most beers below 8%. Finishes dry and makes you want more.
This is an exceptional stout. Interesting to see a foreign brewer making an American style and even using American hops. Besides tasting good, it makes you feel good. Like sitting by a fireplace, drinking coffee and eating chocolate covered almonds on a cold winter night. Its just a good thing.
