Awesome bottle from Adam (thanks man!) poured into my Snake River pint glass.
A: Black pour with a tiny dark brown head; some lacing.
S: Straight-up coffee. Coffee grounds, fresh coffee; potent, and kinda in-your-face. Dark, espresso coffee. Light notes of acrid char.
T: This is a different animal; much more diversity here. Bigger body than I expected as well, but we'll get to that...sweeter notes, sugary even; dark caramel, brown sugar, milky lactose, and even some mocha. Still plenty of coffee, but now blended beautifully with a gorgeous milk stout that has some heft.
MF: Not quite full but a creamy medium body...soft, velvety mouthfeel.
O: Impressed with the taste and feel on this one; coffee cream stout for sure! Lactose sugars come through brilliantly, cutting the acrid bitter coffee down to size and blending into a wonderful cold coffee concoction.
Fun one to try, would love to have it again. Thanks Adam!
