4.13/5 rDev -2.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
A: One finger head, black, caramel color up to bright light. It looks thick when pouring.
S: Caramel, light brown sugar, toast, and something spicy, like a kiss of anise.
T: Boozy upfront and on the finish. I don't notice the anise like I did in the smell. The 11%abv is not hidden well but it doesn't take away from the beer. Caramel is there, and a very nice toffee flavor that I haven't noticed in many stouts. A hint of tobacco. Big malts. There is almost a sourness/heat that lingers.
M: Big. I want to chew this beer. It's heavy but not muddy. Very fine carbonation really cuts the thickness of the brew nicely. For such a thick beer it really leaves a wet mouth.
O: I'll buy this again. It's big in a lot of ways, and is certainly unique. Between the toffee flavor and sour backend, you're going to get something different here. It's a refreshing taste from the smooth, caramel, coffee stouts. If you're looking for a quality stout and something different, this is it.
