Bottle poured into a snifter. Got this one as an Xmas present, probably not more than 3 months old.
A- Pours black with a nice finger's worth of caramel colored head which quickly dissipates into a think film along the top. Lacing is apparent on the sides of the glass.
S- Lots of coffee, hints of chocolate and vanilla, roasty malts. Alcohol is also evident in the aroma.
T- Up front I get lots of roasty malts, which moves into the coffee flavor. The coffee is big in this one, as one would expect. Then some hints of chocolate come about. For a stout I can taste some hop presence as well. Very good stuff.
M- Thick and chewy. For being 12% ABV the alcohol doesn't bite too bad. A great sipper.
This is certainly one of the better stouts I've had. You wouldn't think it of it as being 12% ABV based on the way it drinks. I'd like to see how the coffee flavors fare with some age on this one.
