tulip glass. bottled on 9/14/11.
a - pours black and forms a finger or so of light brown head that calms to a film pretty quick. leaves some nice long legs of lacing in my glass.
s - espresso with big dark chocolate notes, faint earthiness.
t - big roasted malt flavor with even bigger espresso notes. some dark chocolate comes through though not nearly as much as in the nose. a few faint notes of dark fruits (cherry maybe?) and no discernible hop character. finish is bitter like black coffee and hangs on the tongue a bit.
m - full bodied for sure but has enough carbonation to keep it in check. medium co2 profile, slight alcohol warming.
o - a solid beer overall and one of my favorites from bell's. drinkability is good for such a rich brew. not quite as smooth or refined as some of the better known coffee stouts out there, but still worth seeking out.
