4.25/5 rDev -2.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 750ml into a snifter.
A - THICK. Lots of beers get described as motor oil, this is the first one I've ever seen that actually truly looks like used motor oil. Completely and utterly black, opaque. This is what a stout should look like.
S - chocolate, molasses, vanilla, roasty malt
T - really complex. There's a lot of dark chocolate, again the molasses flavor peeks through, vanilla, bitter chocolate. Complex to the point of being hard to describe. No bitterness anywhere. Finish is smooth and sweet.
M - say it again, THICK! Thickest beer I've ever had. Near zero carbonation. Rich. I wish every stout were this thick!
O - Look and feel nailed it. Smell and taste were also very good. Super complex, kick you in the face stout. Definitely one to share, as this one almost wears you out by the end. Very much looking for this one again.
