22oz bottle from 2011 poured into a snifter
A: Black water...as the bottle says. Thin dark tan head that dissipates to a pronounced ring around the glass. Very little lacing.
S: Semi-sweet chocolate. Actual chocolate...not the chocolate flavor you can derive from roasted dark malt. Also, grassy hops, some phenol alcohol and a little roasted malt.
T: Like a sledgehammer. Not overly complex. Tons of semi-sweet chocolate up front and then it gives way to a more traditional big double stout flavor in the finish. Way more roasted malt than the nose indicates. Quite bitter towards the end but I like it. Alcohol fairly well hidden.
M: Medium-to-heavy body. Silky smooth. Carbonation is average. Drinkability is moderate.
O: This is a beer that you have to be in the right mood for...but when you are in that mood it delivers big time. I don’t find it cloyingly sweet like some others...not by any means. It’s a dessert beer, but it’s also a big time roasty stout.
