Poured from a 22oz bottle into a HofTD tulip. Batch #13 (bottled in August 2013), so about a month old or so. Bought for $11.99 @ Whole Foods Newport Beach.
A - Pitch black, looks very silky. Mocha heads leaves great lacing. Everything you want to see in a good Imperial Stout.
S - Mostly big cocoa and bittersweet chocolate. A little faint vanilla and coconut. Not the most aromatic beer.
T - What it lacks in the nose, it makes up for in the taste. Big dark chocolate note, along with the coffee. A lot like a Cafe Mocha. Pretty sweet upfront, but the back end dries out nicely. You get the whisky/bourbon mid palate. Nice toffee, vanilla, coconut notes that blend perfectly w/ the cocoa and coffee. Only a slight hint of alcohol burn, but very light for 12.2% and being that it is fairly young.
M - Perfect for this style. Very thick and viscous (again thick a rich cafe mocha). You get a very creamy (half and half) note. Carbonation is low to go along with that silky, creamy mouthfeel.
O - Great beer!! The chocolate and coffee meld seamlessly with the whiskey and bourbon. This is the creamiest alcoholic cafe mocha that I have had. Starbucks should have this on their menu!
