12oz bottle from Whatsarezaf (thanks man!). Served in a snifter. No bottling date noticed.
Pours deep black with a wisp of mocha head. No lacing.
Smells of roasty malts, dark fruit, smoke, chocolate, coffee and licorice.
Taste follows the nose. Bitter dark chocolate covered burnt coffee beans, leather, dates, smokey wood and a mere hint of bitter hops. I taste a little booze but not near what I expect from 12% alcohol.
Creamy medium thick feel with mild carbonation.
This was an awesome extra in a trade. If given the chance, I'll happily pick up a pack or two of this. I have to assume this has a little age from the rich creamy feel and well hidden alcohol. Big, bold, delicious- worth a try for any fan of imperial stouts.
