Thanks to the lord grand high chancellor of the massholes, IBUnit63 for the kickass box from whence this came.
Pours an impenetrable black with a nice light tan head that lingers incredibly well and leaves very nice lacing.
Nose is strong enough that i can smell it in the air after the pour. Bringing the nose closer reveals notes of chocolate and roasted barley.
Wow. An excellent stout. Very robust up front with giant roasted barley flavors. Chocolate notes dance across the palate briefly before the roastiness really takes hold. A very nice body and the finish is awesomely dry without being to bitter. Hop profile is minimal, which is good for this beer, and roasted malt and slight chocolate linger on into the aftertaste. This is a very robust porter-like stout.
Mouthfeel is pretty much exactly where you would want it in a beer of this kind. Nice and silky without being too slick or thick, nice and dried out on the finish.
Drinkability is very solid, especially for a fairly high abv. The abv definitely doesn't make its presence known. Could easily rock a couple bombers of this one.
Overall, a very nice and well crafted stout. Love the roastiness in this one. Any fan of roasted barley and dark grains will be all over this one. A porter-like profile. Well attenuated and dried out without being too bitter, and a nice smooth chocolate presence riding underneath. A fine stout.
