Oh how I wish this were a cheaper bottle!!
These days it's my favorite stout, but the "luxury" on the label sadly applies not only to the luxurious nature of the brew but also to its cost.
First pour is black, thick, creamy with a gorgeous tan head with tight but consistent bubble size. Gorgeous aromas of dark chocolate and toasted malt give a clue at the flavour to come. This is an incredibly smooth stout that flows over your tastebuds in a soft blanket (rather than explosion) of chocolate, dark roasted coffee, cream and balancing sweetness. Both the hops and the malt are there to provide the foundation, but never unbalance the overall flavour. Unlike some chocolate stouts, there is no false note in the aftertaste, leaving one able to savour the beer over time.
A great stout to have with desert - or AS desert.
