Can poured into a snifter.
Cola brown and translucent, not as cloudy as other stouts. Red and brown highlights with a head that quickly subsided. Looks decent, could be thicker looking.
Smell is nice. Roasted malt gives impressions of coffee, bitter chocolate, and an earthy burned component. Quite nice, especially considering I have a touch of a cold.
Taste is impressive. Not as burned as the nose because the caramelized malt gives some nice residual sweetness. There is a great coffee note along with some chocolate and toffee. Enjoyable, but I notice some alcohol burn that should have been masked .
Mouthfeel is a toss-up between a heavy carb and a nice thick mouthfeel. I'm leaning in favor of the latter, as I think the nice round feel overshadows the flawed level of carb. Still a bit short of the mark here.
Drinkability is anothe toss-up. This should be a sipping beer, so I'm OK with that, but there is a bit too much burn considering the amount of flavor and the ABV. Still something I'm thrilled to have come across - this would be PERFECT for a cold night at a music festival that doesn't allow glass bottles.
