Pours out viscois inpentratable black, tan espresso head makes it light appearence, dissipates quickly, leaving thin wisps on the surface. Light carbonation, this has to be one of the most beautiful things Ive ever seen poured out of a can(haven't had Surly though,).
Aromatics are highly enjoyable. Chocolate, pomegranite, milky dairy creaminess upfront. I once tried a chocolate Pom pomegranite juice drink, and this is it. Espresso, vanilla, anise, soy follow. This is not overpowering in any direction, clean, well hopped.
At first sip, a suprising hoppiness comes through. A extremly well balanced mixture of spicy hops, followed by cocoa, little dark fruits, Armanac prunes, more espresso and chocolate on the finish. Spiced mexican chocolat comes to mind. The deepness of the maltiness paired with hoppy spiciness give this brew a chocolaty musty spiciness that recalls a young Barolo wine. This would pair greatly with roasted red meat or game. This is easily one of the most hopped stouts Ive tried, and Im digging it.
Mouthfeel is full, thick, and rich but then kept in balance by the hoppiness. Over all a very "clean" extremely flavorful stout I will make a regular.
