Acquired via trade
Black, thick, shiny, and oily with very little, almost zero, visible carbonation. The eventual head is small and dark brown in color and doesn't leave much in the way of stick to the glass.
Rich aroma of roasted coffee and dark malts, decadent chocolate, and just a bit of an alcoholic, burning bite.
Roasted malts and chocolate flavors dominate and the alcohol plays a very minor role in this beer's flavor. With no bottled on information, I can't know for sure how old this one is, but it did sit at the back of my refrigerator for quite a long time. This is rich, complex, and quite divine.
Thick mouthfeel with low carbonation. A pleasure.
This is a wonderful big stout. It doesn't get much better.
