Poured from a 750mL bottle into a footed glass. Nearing room temperature. Stamped 12 November 2012.

A: Black as pitch.

S: Smells like cold coffee.Pleasant. Imposing.

T: Bourbon. Brown sugar. The most sweetened of coffees. Still it's pleasantly bitter -- some coffee. Some chocolate. End taste is dry

M: Thin and smooth and pleasant.

O: Good beer. Great beer, even. Drink if possible. Very, very nice.

Black gold, Texas tea pour: completely opaque, slight tan head reduces to a ring in no time flat, no lacing noted and not expected.

Aroma is loaded with roasted espresso beans, cacao, rich malt, licorice, and molasses.

Taste mirrors the dense aroma, extremely rich with roasted coffee and bittersweet chocolate, vanilla around the edges, woodiness from the barrels and the bourbon also stand out. The flavors are rich and complex, and this stout covers your palate like roofing tar. As with all stouts, a bit of warming changes the character a bit and in a good way.

Full bodied and rich, velvety smooth, a bit of heat and warming in the chest noted.

I was advised not to let this bottle go too long (dated 11/12/12) as the coffee flavors are reported to fade despite the label stating "Develops for up to 5 years in the bottle." This was the 2012 release w/La Tortuga coffee beans. Smooth and rich, bold and boozy, this is a BIG stout that has a lot to offer and comes highly recommended if you can get your hands on it.
