Bomber into tulip
Appearance- Jet black, motor oil, tan head that dissipates fast.
Aroma- The espresso is not as strong as I was expecting but definatly there. Along with roasted malt, some dark fruits slight vanilla . espresso become much more prominent as it warms some booze as well
Flavor- Big coffee espresso, roasted malt, figs, sharp bitterness, some vanilla on the back end. the bitterness and espresso lingering on in aftertaste. Some alcohol, but does not taste anywhere near 11%.
Mouthfeel- on the heavy side, moderate carbanation, smooth, warming alcohol
Overall- I'm diggin this. I love espresso and IRS so I felt okay picking this up on a whim. It is also very drinkable for the abv, I would never have guessed 11%..
