[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]

The pour was a murky opaque black with a large (2-3 finger) light tan frothy head that was mostly lasting, reducing slightly to a thick cap which lasted throughout and had good runny lacing.

The aroma was of a roasted cereal malt and a heavy leathery yeast with notes of molasses, chocolate, vanilla, coffee and a mild odor of bourbon.

The taste was bold and roasty with a nice malty feel and possessed hints of chocolate and molasses from the get go, and then became slightly bitter sweet with a strong coffee note and an alcohol presence that seemed stronger than the ABV that this brew possesses. The flavor lasted quite a long time after the swallow, with an alcohol espresso taste hanging out on the taste buds for a while longer.

Mouthfeel was almost full in body with a creamy, dry texture and a very soft carbonation.

Overall this was a very good rich Stout with a lot of flavor which did not take away from the alcohol taste one bit, making it a very enjoyable and easy brew to drink...

A - Jet black with khaki colored head that dissipates rather quickly.

S - Immediately detect the bourbon odor, followed by roasted malts, coffee notes, and a chocolate presence.

T - Follows the nose almost exact. More chocolate than I expected, being that I've had the standard Black Mamba Stout offering on-tap, and didn't remember the prevalence of chocolate. There's a woody note in there, along with the slightest taste of bourbon, and a light alcohol burn on the back.

M - Heavily carbonated, border-lining on too much. There is a distinct fizz in the front, which gives way to a nice thick mouth feel, but I think it would be better if they dialed the carbonation back a bit.

O - I read through some of the previous reviews on this beer, and became a bit skeptical of my decision purchasing it. However, I'm glad I did, as I am actually pretty impressed! This is an enjoyable beer. Far better than the original Black Mamba.
