3/5 rDev -18.3%
375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Jet black. Small khaki head. Nice surface wisps.
Smell - Black patent malt. Very roasty. Brandy. Charred oak. Very fruity. Could be from the brandy barrel or the cherry.
Taste - Intense oak. Bitter and spicy oak. Burnt malt. Ashy. A little bit fruity. Some brandy. Dominated by oak and bitter burnt malts, though. I don't get the chestnuts at all. Spicy finish.
Mouthfeel - Very bitter. Not very heavy, but so bitter and ashy that it's tough to drink.
Overall - Intense flavors overwhelm the positive aspects.

I purchased these beautiful bottles directly off of Adroit's website: http://adroittheory.myshopify.com/collections/all
I was very impressed and pleased with the packaging and shipping materials. I was even more impressed by the communication from the head brew-master, Greg in letting me know when they would be shipped out as they were in the middle of bottling and mailing out when I purchased.
Now for the beer itself. The bottling, packaging, labeling...it's all very well done. This is is one of those beers that you would see on a shelf and couldn't say no to.
A: pours jet black with very little head
S: chocolate, fig, caramel, vanilla, and a little burnt wood
T: sweet malts and chocolate hits you up front, caramel thickness coats your tongue and a touch of charred wood and bitterness towards the end...its absolutely delightful.
M: i would prefer to have a little thicker consistency on my imperials as this was a little thin but still wonderfully done
O: very well done stout by Adroit. I'd love to try this again.
