Yep. That classifies it... this is a very good IS. Poured from a 12oz bottle into my snifter (shared with my stout-loving old lady)...impervious, deep blackness looked ready to swallow my soul (as well as any inkling of a head to this brew). Exceptional looker. Nice nose with hints of chocolate, roasted coffee beans, and a nice, distinct bitterness. The bitterness hit up front on the palate, some deep malt notes too, but overall a really good balance for an IS. Medium mouthfeel, but interestingly this came off as refreshing, which is not normally what I get out of a 9.5% stout. Now, personally I am a bigger fan of the deep, dark molasses and dark fruit notes in my big stouts, but this came off with a nice balance that sets it apart. Definitely worth a pint. I'd be psyched to try some more of their brews.
