4.01/5 rDev -4.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
:( The last from my Le Cumbre haul :(
Appearance - Pour is dark, dare I even say, black. Huge tan head falls nice and slow-like, lace and retention are decent.
Smell - Dense roast and char, chocolate bars, extra toasted bread, coffee, molasses, light earthiness.
Taste - Still big on roasted malts with other flavors being harder to pick out than in the scent. Dark chocolate, dark fruit, a bit of a sweetened coffee vibe, toasty bread/grains, light alcohol warmth, big general burnt flavor with low sweetness.
Mouthfeel - Lower-end carbonation, matches the flavor with its density, pretty hefty feel to it. Definitely a bit of a sipper.
Overall - Kinda reminds me of big bold imperial stouts like Old Rasputin, Expedition, Ten Fidy; lighter in alcohol but almost equal in dense+intense roast/dark chocolate. Definitely not an everyday stout, but if you dig this kinda thing it's sure to please.

4.54/5 rDev +8.4%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
Poured into a 16 oz snifter, mine said 7.5% ABV. Pours a slick black with a gorgeous 2 inch light brown head that leaves behind loads of lace.
Smell is dark malts, dark chocolate, roasted coffee, vanilla, molasses, with hints of tobacco, licorice, and leather, very complex.
Taste follows the nose. Starts will coffee, vanilla, and dark chocolate, with loads of flavors in the finish, with a warming alcohol and biscuit mixed in.
The body is medium large, with a perfect amount of carbonation, a bit dry, and very drinkable even though it feels more like a 9% ABV.
This is excellent, thanks to my friend for treating to one of these.
