2011 bottle, 10.7% ABV.
A: Pours pitch black with one of the darkest brown heads I've seen. It's barely discernible from the body at first! Head appears quite dense and slowly fades away, leaving moderate but opaque lacing behind.
S: Whiskey initially. A bit of caramel, toffee and oak. Otherwise a strong roasted malt presence with char and chocolate. A bit of anise is present as well.
T: Again, whiskey up front, quite smooth though. Lots of toffee with some caramel, brown sugar and a strong oakiness. Creamy and smooth roasted malt follows afterward with a little char and mostly chocolate. Again, a bit of anise towards the finish. Some oak and vanilla bean resides in the aftertaste. The lingering aftertaste reminds me of vanilla beans and brownies. Delicious. Remarkably mellow given the ABV. No sharpness to the roasted malt or whiskey. Just smooth and balanced.
M: Creamy and very silky smooth. Fairly heavy.
O: Great RIS. The balance of whiskey and stout is excellent. It makes for a very smooth and well balanced beer. The mouthfeel is also stunning, so creamy and thick without being syrupy or overpoweringly heavy. Like a big irish stout. This beer honestly blew me away, it's just perfectly crafted. Period.
