Bottle. No freshness date
A - Pours an almost pitch black with a beige one-finger head that subsides to a centimeter thick gauzy ring
S - A surprisingly fruity aroma, mostly a ripe banana smell bordering on ester-y, mingling with intended oak. A good bit of booze for a 9%.
T - A bit overly sweet for my taste, but consistent with the style. At first an unbalanced roastiness dominates, but the finish ebbs into a nice malt hop balance. Main flavors: smoky, coffee, cotton candy, burned toast, mushroomy baconness
M - The best part: the viscosity is right on, thick but not motor oil. The fermented tingle fades to a beautiful alcoholic tinge
O - Very good, the total effect is surprisingly drinkable for an IS, but compared to some other stouts that i've had recently (like the total delight of FFF Alpha Klaus' crazy taste profile) it falls just a little short. Not enough to pour into anything but my gullet
