British Columbia (Canada)
4.5/5 rDev +9.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Why is it characterized as "jet" black? Like, this stuff is black, but how does that equate to a jet. Maybe. "pitch"???!
Smell: Very roasty and a little bit of earthy hops. Coffee, and Chocolate.
Taste: Coffee, Chocolate, and a slightly estery yeast flavour.
Mouthfeel: Smooth is such a generic term. This beer is small-bubbled and delicious. There's definitely a lot of hops that were thrown in the boil.
Drinkability: Much like their Java, the alcohol is there in intoxication, but almost absent in taste and aroma. This makes it excessively easy to drink. The bitterness makes it a little charcoal-y but holy crap, what an incredible beer.
Overall: I'm happy with this beer, but way too expensive. Over $10 per bottle, I'd probably rather have a Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout. They're extremely similar, but this stuff is really nice.
Serving type: bottle
