Review from notes at World of Beer - Fort Myers on 9/17/11.
Poured on draft into a snifter.
Appearance: Dark as night, completely opaque motor oil black with a 1 finger creamy dark mocha head. Perfect lacing. I don't think a stout could look any better.
Smell: Coffee, chocolate, sweet malt and a touch of toffee.
Taste: Sweet malt, chocolate and molasses up front followed by coffee in the middle before ending with toasted malt and bitter hops. Aftertaste is bitter with a touch of burnt toast.
Mouthfeel: Full-bodied, thick and creamy. Very smooth.
Drinkability: Excellent drinkability. The alcohol will keep me from drinking multiples, but you could easily down more than one.
Overall: Excellent beer overall. I love it from the bottle, but the draft was just phenomenal. If you ever see it on draft, make sure you try it.
Serving type: on-tap
