3.98/5 rDev -5.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
12 oz. bottle poured into stout glass
(bottled on 1/23/13; drank 4/14/13)
L: black; only the absolute tip is dark amber when held up to light; chocolate head, about 1/2-inch of fluffy foam, very thick with plenty of lacing; the head looks red from top down
S: malt; burnt/toasted chocolate; sweet biscuits at times; alcohol shows up at times
T: espresso, chocolate ... the first sip is as good as it gets; loads of malt with a solid backbone of hops; very chocolatey with a lot of alcohol in the taste; finishes very dry; tastes more burnt than the smell, but it's not a bad thing.
F: thick, full, not syrupy but at times feels lumpy ... carbonation keeps it drinkable
O: it's quite a bit ... LOVE the fact that you can get it in 12 oz. bottles because 12 oz. is about all I'd ever want in a session; as good a malt fix as I've run into in the darker malt family; a testament to this one's gateway prowess: I CRAVED this brew by the time I reached the fourth and final bottle in my four-pack.
When the weather starts to cool and/or I get in the mood for some stout, I will definitely be going back to this one. A really good brew, and though the 9.5% ABV is ever-present, it's never overbearing.
