Served in a Duvel tulip, poured from a 12 oz. bottle.
A - A rich, inky black with a coffee brown head that settles quick but leaves a nice foam collar and lots of sticky, spotty lacing.
S - Lots of dark, roasted malts with a very subtle hop character, backed up by chocolate, coffee and a hint of smokiness.
T - The rich, bitter chocolate comes through, backed up well by the roasty coffee malts. It's surprisingly mellow on the bitterness, finishing cleaner that most RIS's, yet still lghtly bitter and smoky. The bitterness comes through more as it warms up, taking on more roasted coffee characteristics.
M - Velvety smooth with just enough carbonation to give it an absolute perfect body and weight for the style. Lovely.
D - The bitterness stays moderate throughout drinking, and the alcohol is hidden very well. Great drinkability for such a big beer.
Overall - For everyday drinking, I'm a pale ale/lager/hefe guy. But sometimes, you just want a big bold stout to sip and savor. Another great beer from the magic man in Brooklyn. Thank you, Garret Oliver.
