Batch #3 into Kuhnhenn tulip
Pour: Jet black with a full three finger tan head. Lacing is enormous and like sticky soap all over the sides of the glass. Head settles to a small pillow on half the surface of the beer.
Smell: Light coffee notes, dark semi-sweet chocolate, oak and vanilla. This is I'm assuming a huge, huge beer and I find everything in the nose to be spot on and in near perfect harmony.
Taste: Just like the nose with the moderate coffee, huge notes of dark chocolate, oak and vanilla. Also getting molasses, booze soaked dark fruit and a bit of char. The spiciness from the whiskey is evident and adds a fantastic additional dimension to this beer. Alcohol heat is here for sure but not distracting.
Mouthfeel: On the lighter side of full with soft carbonation. Creamy (silky) smooth but the alcohol does cut this with a bit of a bite.
Overall: This is a fantastic well balance coffee stout especially for such a huge beer. I am enjoying this one a lot.
Serving type: bottle
