look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
A: Very cool looking pour.. almost looked like nitro. Pouring it into an english pint glass the light mocha / tan colored head almost seemed to shoot down into the glass rather then rise to the top. It built about 4 fingers tall and didn't settle for a few minutes. Nice lacing. Near black color, just a few rays of light shine through revealing the brownish hue.
S: Subtle aroma overall. Picking up a fruity spicey english type hop aroma, think pears and green apple, lemon zest. with some piney notes and spice (very unexpected but nice). Lots of interesting esters, I believe from the yeast used. Light bready and toasty notes.
T: Moderate amount of hop flavor (for the style) without much bitterness. The same pine and spicey-fruity hop flavors coming through. Milk chocolate and a root beer/molasses character. Light caramel and bready sweetness.
M: Nice creamy slick texture to this beer. Mild carbonation levels with no astringency. Medium to lower bodied.
O: A creamy, chocolatey, smooth drinking stout with a significant hop character. This one isn't going to win any awards but it sure goes down nice. The hop character was a little unexpected and I want to try this after it has a few months on it. Luckily I bought a second bottle at DLD.
Serving type: bottle
