650 ml cap stout. Though the abv on here says 7.99, this bottle says 8.3%. As always a nonsensical story on the side, this time biblical in nature. Always good reading, especially after two or three glasses of the stuff. Poured into my glass a lovely ebony hue, with a great, healthy looking bed of light brown/off red head. Lacing is spotty but thick. Delicious looking. Aroma at first struck me with sweet coffee, or damp cardboardish vanilla like notes. Unexpected, this. I mean after that and as the beer warmed I got some extremely sweet coffee notes, but the initial hit was a tad...underwhelming, shall we say. Pretty one-sided coffee/root beer aroma, but that's to be expected...or is it? Again a strange herbal tinge as I take the first sip. Almost medicinal, like a brief hint of Jagermeister or something. Good news is this a tasty coffee beer. The coffee taste is not souring or distracting, but rather complementing. Not the best I've tasted, but good. Decent bitterness and actually, conversely, a deep maple syrup finish. There isn't a hell of a lot else to describe in the taste. But it gets the job done. Mouthfeel was a little lacking, seemingly due to not enough carbonation for me personally. Drinkability? I'm the wrong person to ask, because coffee stouts/porters have never been my preferred style. For me, drinkability is good enough at one bottle. Worth a try, all. Worth a try.
