I got my growler filled at Westmere Beverage in Guilderland on 11/15/12. This is what they say about this beer on their website:
"Strong Imperial Stout made with Guatemalan bittersweet chocolate, organic cocoa nibs and locally ground coffee from Caffe Vero. Aged in bourbon barrels!!! 8.0% abv."
A: Poured from the growler into a pint glass. Body is black with almost no carbonation. Produces a thin wisp of greyish head. No lace.
S: Roasted coffee, cocoa and dark chocolate.
T: Follows the nose: lots of coffee. Also bitter dark chocolate. Hint of bourbon, but it's not terribly strong - which is fine as far as my tastebuds are concerned (I don't like it a bourban-bal-aged stout is overwhelmed by the bourbon). Heat from the ABV is noted on the back end of the palate and in the belly. Lingering dark chocolate-type bitterness; think high-cacao content chocolate. Also roasted coffee bean-like bitterness noted.
M: Medium in heft; carbonation is nearly non-existent, but the body doesn't seem heavy enough to make this slick. Tempted to knock down the score here due to a lack of carbonation, but I'll leave it at 4.0....
O: Good stuff. About to settle in with a Stones documentary (Crossfire Hurricane) and the rest of this growler. Should be good.
Serving type: growler
