4.06/5 rDev -4.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Bottled on: February 12, 2010. 22 oz bottle with gold foil into a DFH signature glass.
A - Pours a jet black body with three fingers of dark mocha foam. Thick edging with solid lacing and retention.
S - Rich milk chocolate, cocoa butter, roasted malts, vanilla and some light bitterness. Oak is there but obviously not as complex as a a barrel. The coffee is definitely faded and about as noticeable as any non coffee stout which develops some of those bean notes via the malts. A bit harsh and boozy on the finish.
T - Rich and decadent chocolate, cocoa powder, woody oak, light roast, a touch of vanilla and then faded coffee beans. The oak is very noticeable and quite tasty against the chocolate backbone but the coffee is just an afterthought now. Luckily there is no awkward bitterness from the coffee left over, which is something I've found in KBS with a year or two on it. Mouth feel is thick and creamy.
O - Probably a former shell of itself as the large selling point, the espresso, is all but gone. Fortunately the oak shines through and the standard yeti is a delicious chocolate bomb which makes for an outstanding stout with nearly 2.5 years on the clock.
