Poured from a 12 oz can (of course) into my DFH snifter at just below cellar temperature.
A - Motor-oil black with subtle carbonation action that pushes up a modest cappuccino foam head that subsides to a film after about a minute or so. Not much for lacing, but then again this style always has trouble in this area.
S - Amazingly, behind the thick roasted coffee and dark chocolate malt assault, the crisp green west coast hops are completely discernible. Also noted are hints of vanilla, soy, brown sugar and molasses.
T - Bitter coffee and bittersweet chocolate with that odd but unmistakable nuance of English Stilton cheese that I so often get in really good Russian Imperial Stouts. Nicely bittered in the back of the tongue and after the swallow. Decently drying in a way that leaves you wanting that next sip...
M - Silky and smooth with just a quick wash of tingle. Turns thick and viscous in the mouth before the sublime, throat-coating swallow. Fantastic.
D - For a ten percenter, this beer is all about the smooth. I don't know what else to say other than -- this beer simply rocks, and I wish I had it in the running when I did my last RIS blind tasting.
