12 oz. bottle poured into my Brooklyn snifter
A- Black with a half finger brown head. Retains well with a wall of lacing.
S- Mocha, slight mellow booze ( which intensifies with temp rise) but very well concealed.
T- Strong coffee, bitter, a hint of chocolate. The chocolate presence is there.
M- Thick and velvety. A tingle of light carbonation and a little alcohol warmth. Finishes slightly dry/bitter for a good balance.
O- The first thing I thought of, was that this was no where near the chocolate stouts I have had in the past. But then I read and realized that this chocolate stout (unlike others) doesn't actually use chocolate in it's recipe. Then I was struck by how well selected the blend of malts is, in imitating the chocolate flavor. Props to Brooklyn.
