I would like to thank Ultraman9000 for sending this amazing beer to me. I was rooting through my cellar and decided tonight was a good night to open this up.
It pours with a vigorous 2in foam which dissipates quickly to leave a small foam ring around the edge of the beer. It pours with a dark coffee color which cannot be seen through. Now, as for the nose it's packed with a nice roast coffee malt, and also some really nice dark fruit, licorice, and some light molasses. When it comes to taste it is packed with dark fruits, unsweetened chocolate, molasses, licorice, and some birch notes. As for the mouthfeel it has a some really nice carbonation going on which enhances the birch root and molasses notes. Overall, I really enjoyed this beer from Drake's; although I really enjoy almost all of Drake's offerings. I think this stout was very well done, but also mirrored Kern's Class V stout, which is amazing as well. I could definitely have one of the stouts everyday; this stout was very well done. Bravo, Drake's!
