With a lot of mislabeled stouts out there, this one comes real close. Definitely not a porter, too reserved for an Imperial stout but I would not put this in the dry stout category as per the label. To me, at least, this is a solid sweet stout.
Pours a thick black, no light transmission, with a medium brown/beige head. Aroma is porterish, malty, a slight vinous nature and faint chocolate notes.
Taste is robust, malted milk and coffee. Smokey, dark roasted malts, slightly sweet like sorghum. Dark bittersweet chocolate flavors somewhere in the background. Also licorice, amaretto or some other liqueur elements present.
Silky smooth, creamy velvet texture, full-bodied and heavy on the palate but with a clean finish containing only a hint of acidity. A bit sweeter than I prefer but an excellent stout, no flaws at all. Many thanks to kfoss99 for introducing this beer to me.
