This is a BIG stout!!!! Pours a dense jet black color with a minimal head, zero retention and no lacing. You don't even have to hold it to a light to know that no light is going to get through this sucker.
Smell is rich and fragrant, mostly port wine. Taste is outstanding. Port wine, a little alcohol burn, some vanilla and dark fruit. It tastes like a mix between a JW Lee English Barleywine (Port Wine cask) and a 10 Fidy.
Mouthfeel is good. The port wine and alcohol thin it out a bit, not overly rich and creamy.
Drinkability is good as a sipper. I would slowly drink this one until the side effects of 18% abv outweighed the taste. (Probably around the 18 oz area). I wound up having a slice of caribbean rum cake in the course of drinking this beer. The stout went very well with the cake.
This is a really good experience. I would do it again sometime.
