500 mL bottle poured into a glass.
I've tried this both cold (straight from the fridge at around 5C) and at slightly cooler than room temperature. It is definitely better at room temp, as the flavors are able to come forth more.
Pours pitch black and syrupy. There is a very thin (1/2 finger) brown head with minimal lacing.
Smells of brown sugar, burnt caramel, and dark/dried fruits, especially dates.
Taste has a sweet/spicy mixture, recalling prunes, brown sugar (as hinted at in the aroma). Also very malty and some mild hops (American hops added actually), with a very tiny hint of ginger.
Mouthfeel is rich and syrupy.
Drinkability is so-so. It almost comes across as more of a winter warmer than a stout, as the sweet/spicy mixture sets in; yet it's not quite as rich as a spiced winter warmer.
