750ml bottle poured into a FFF/DMC snifter 6/21/2014.
A- Typical Perennial stout appearance. Dark black body, one finger off white head with little retention, no lacing.
S- Roasty coffee that isn't particularly acidic, mixed in with milk chocolate and espresso dark malts. Some whiskey, oak and vanilla as well. Smells sweet yet roasty but no acidity from the coffee, which I find to be unique as far as coffee stouts go.
F- Damp oak barrel, roast coffee, milk chocolate, a bit of vanilla, espresso and roast malts. Nice and uniquely complex coffee profile. Some vanilla and milk chocolate finishes the beer rather than any bitter coffee flavours as I'd expect.
M- Medium body, lower carbonation. Very drinkable for it's ABV, but no question this is a strong one that's covered up a bit by the coffee. As above, I find that there is very little acidity contributed from the coffee on the finish.
O- A real treat. Enjoyed this one more than the BA Sump. The coffee roastiness without the acidity is a really unique and nice twist on the base beer.
