bomber into 2012 SAVOR tulip. not sure of the bottling date, however there is a 'best by 2015' on the label.
A: pours a shade under pitch black. head is a solid brown hue. frothy. retention isn't great, nor the lacing. but I do like that initial pour hue...
S: roast and a bunch of unfermentables are the first things to jump out at me. cigar ash. a decent amount of smokiness on the nose. dark chocolate.
T: a vanilla sweetness warms the body and welcomes the first sip. the bitterness is strong, but manageable. definitely from the coffee as its flavor comes out after the bitterness and lingers long after the drink is gone. virtually no alcohol heat.
M: mellow carb on a BIG body. let the palate do the talking, that's what I like.
D: unsure of the difference between bottled-on and best-by here, I have to assume this is relatively fresh. regardless, just a super drinkable, super rich stout. I could sip on this thing all night.

22 ounce bottle - $15.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Chugs out an onyx black body with a thickish, slowly receding, dark tan-hued head.
Smell: IB is marked by its unmistakable almond-scented nose that literally jumps out of the glass, followed fast by robust, just-roasted coffee, melty sweet chocolate, subtle vanilla beans, steeped prunes, and a splash of clean alcohol.
Taste: A double-chocolate almond cookie dunked in rich morning-fresh coffee generously dosed with sweetened vanilla-flavored almond milk and even a drip of Amaretto. A dark fruitiness shortly creeps in, as does a (very) little roasty bitterness, maybe a snippet of restrained leafy, tobacco-laced hops. The various flavors, some nutty, and the dessert-like sweetness just roll back and forth over the tongue, progressing beyond the smooth, slightly warming, slightly drying finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Silky mouthfeel.
Overall: Listen, if you can't get excited about this beer, you don't deserve coffee, vanilla beans OR almonds.
