12oz. bottle, poured into a Duvel tulip at cellar temperature.
Appearance- Pours a dark black colour, with absolutely no light penetrating any angles of this one, average pour yields a finger of dark brown head that quickly dissipates to a very small ring around the glass leaving very minimal to no lacing throughout till finish.
Smell- A very nice coffee smell coming from this one, I rather like it to be honest, it’s not overly bitter like a lot of coffee stouts can be but it smells nice and sweet. Nice roasted malt flavours as well with a small hint of dark chocolate in there also; it really does smell like a sweet milky iced coffee that you buy from the store not some bitter cold coffee smell.
Taste- Is pretty much just like the aromas, the coffee in this one actually tastes good and is well balanced, milky sweet coffee flavours paired with a nice roasted malt flavour that finishes almost sweet on the palate, no bitter coffee tastes here just a good tasting iced coffee flavour, some dark chocolate flavours hidden in there as well; a very well balanced coffee stout.
Mouthfeel- Medium bodied that goes down nice and silky smooth, very creamy on the mouth feel as well with average carbonation.
Overall- I am very impressed by this one, this is a nice sweet, milky, sugary stout that is not overly bitter on the coffee but on the contrary it was like I went to McDonalds and bought an iced coffee, it was just so well balanced and perfect on the palate, the smells are not overly complex but this one really shines through in the tastes. A great beer that was picked up at a great price and I would definitely pick this one again once I run out. Congrats Short’s this one is definitely a winner in my books.
