4.7/5 rDev +12.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
12 oz. bottle with born on date: 11/17/09. The words "A very dark beer brewed with a ridiculous amount of barley" on the label.
Pours dark and rather thick. Like maple syrup. 1/4 inch head that at first coats the sides of the glass and then forms some slight lacing before disappearing.
Smells like sweet coffee fortified with alcohol. Notes of burnt malt in the background
Tastes way sweeter than the aroma. Sweetest beer I've ever had. I prefer porters over stout as they tend to be sweeter, but this blows all the porters I've tried and everything else away for sweetness. Coffee and burnt malt mimic the aroma. A fruitiness as well, like dried fruits soaked in alcohol. Very warming as the 18% alcohol slides down the throat.
Medium-full mouthfeel. Borderline syrupy, but not too sticky. Like the energizer bunny. Not sticky enough to be distasteful, but enough so that the flavor just keeps on going, and going...
I give it a 5 for sippability, although it's not really drinkable in the normal sense. It took me 2 glorious hours to finish my first 12 oz. 120 Minute IPA. I'm expecting this to be in the same ballpark.
