22oz bottle in a snifter. Had it on the International Stout Day 2012.
A - Very dark brown body, almost black. Medium-size, light brown head with a medium retention which leaves a thick ring with large bubble as a topping. Nice legs and lacing on the glass.
S - Very hoppy aromas, grassy, floral, and piney... very close to fresh hop! Malt at the back adds some roasted character, chocolate, coffee, and a hint of vanilla to it. Not a single trace of alcohol. Everything is very aromatic, complex and balanced. Absolutely perfect!
T/M - Very gentle start with some malt character and a certain astringency/tannicity (almost cacao-like) coming from roasted malt and coffee. Hop appears in the middle of the mouth to blend nicely with the malt and adds a moderate bitterness that lingers forever with the coffee notes. Body is on the high side.
O - Definitely a stout made in heaven! Well crafted and with very complex aromas and flavors. Seek it out now!
