Tasted On: 04-17-2014
Freshness: 2014 Vintage
Packaging: 22 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap, boxed
Glassware: Snifter
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!
