look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
12oz. bottle from 7/30/12
A: Jet black with no head even on the pour. There was a slight mocha film, but that is it.
S: All roast and malt. I am not good at distinguishing between the liquor smells, but it seems like a bourbon/brandy/whiskey. There is also the distinct smells of a mocha, high % dark chocolate.
T: Not a big fan of the aftertaste though, but it diminishes as it warms up and has less of a bite. It tastes like burnt hops, kind of like the usual bitter hop aftertaste of an IPA, but with a hint of cheap coffee. However, the hops that are present in the swallow are a great addition to this. Also, it really warms up nicely in the mouth. The alcohol is very well hidden too. The liquor flavors don't come through as much as the dark chocolate mocha.
M: Crisp up front at the teeth, with the tell tale bubble massage that fills up your mouth. It has a very smooth mouthfeel overall.
O: This is a good stout. I think stouts might be falling out of favor with me though. Overall, the taste and flavor is quite good, but I am still new to stouts; so, I am less knowledgeable about the nuances. It does smell delicious though.
