4.65/5 rDev +13.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
Appearance: Poured into a Duvel tulip; black as night, thick dark cocao two finger head, excellent retention and glistening lacing.
Smell: Bone dry roasted cocao powder with almost a burnt bitterness, a little creaminess comming in from that oatmeal pillow adverstised.
Mouthfeel: Stone has done it again... smoothest mouthfeel I've enojoyed... it feels like I'm fluffing that oatmeal pillow in my mouth; no carbonation or alcohol feel... just silk
Taste: Nice smooth bitter cocao and coffes notes with the rich dark malt and smooth oats... dark, dark cocoa dust on the finishing exhale... pure and straight forward but oh so nice... can't wait to see how the 5 remaining bottles age.
Drinkability: While I was drinking this there was a four hour blackout... coincidence?... I'm not willing to risk the curse of the gargoyle... 5... another beauty from the good folks at Stone... seek this one out.
Serving type: bottle
