4.4/5 rDev -0.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Tasted On: 04-17-2014
Freshness: 2014 Vintage
Packaging: 22 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap, boxed
Purchased: Single from Craft Brewed
Appearance: Color is jet black and opaque, topped by a small head of tan. The head retention is low and lacing is just fair; pretty typical for a beer of this ABV, however.
Smell: Very aromatic -- chocolate, dark cherries, oak wood, figs and other dark fruits, plus coffee notes. The kind of beer you want to smell over and over
Taste: Powerful flavors of sweet malts, ripened fruits and dark chocolates; this brew is quite rich. The whiskey aspects add a noticeable warming from the alcohol.
Mouthfeel: The thick body is also quite creamy and smooth. Carbonation is low. It finishes with aftertastes of mild coffee, bourbon and chocolate malts.
Overall: An exceptional stout from Blackstone -- quite delightful and recommended!
Serving type: bottle
