Deschutes hit another one out of the park!
This was a bottle poured into a stout glass. The appearance is superb! That nice dark ruby color with a mocha head just looks delicious. As far as the smell, it's certainly not bad but you definitely pick up plenty of alcohol, maybe a little coffee something along the lines of an Italian roast. The smell certainly isn't bad but would lead you to believe this beer might be harsh on the palate, but it's not. As far as the mouth-feel just perfect. Nice creamy, no serious carbonation and what is there works well. As far as taste, wow! It's all there, everything you'd expect. The first wave is some NOT so subtle barley, with some NOT so subtle malt but then some subtle dark chocolate and a slight punch of that Italian roast coffee. It all balances amazing with a relatively high alcohol content, so be careful. Just a remarkable Stout with amazing balance and exceptional "craftsmanship" or call it whatever you'd like...just very well done!
