3.5/5 rDev -11.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3
Poured aggressively from a 12 oz. bottle into a nonic glass.
A: Opaque black color with over one finger of dene and persistent light beige foam head. Heavy lacing remains on the glass and static bubbles fairly coat the submerged surfaces.
S: Roasty and unctuous, with a thread of dark fruit that is briefly glimpsed before more enduring nuttiness settles in.
T: Begins fairly sweet, with very refined roasted malt and fruit to match that of the smell. No acidity is detected into the milder nutty middle. Some gentle dark fruit returns in the short finish, while vanilla extract lingers.
M: Thin to medium viscosity, smooth and syrupy on the palate, with very low carbonation.
D/O: While the beer itself is neither unique nor particularly compelling, the mode of packaging is a conversation piece in itself. Nitrogenation keeps acidity tightly under control and yields this beer's single most appealing feature. Hopefully this next-generation nitro bottle technology will be allowed to spread because Deschutes Obsidian or North Coast Old Rasputin stouts could really benefit from it.
Serving type: nitro-bottle
