Vintage 2015.
A: Gorgeous light brown head with creamy and full carbonation over cloudy black liquid.
S: Roast and more roast...coffee, malt and a touch of cocoa.
T: Nicely bitter; way more roast than sugar. Unsweetened chocolate and coffee grounds. A tiny bit metallic.
M: Creamy but not thick; just viscous enough. Coats the mouth but still drinkable.
O: I was expecting a much sweeter stout; given the massive amount of roast without the dextrose this is intensely drinkable for an IS. World-Class to say the least and a breath of fresh air after so many overly-sugary stouts.

12 oz Bottle to tulip glass.

LOOK: motor oil, thick dark black, with a small tan head, fades to lacing. (4.25)

AROMA: smoke, roasted malt, dark chocolate, cookie dough.(4.25)

TASTE: oats, barley, bitter chocolate. Tasty, but expecting more based on aroma and appearance. (4.0).

FEEL: Very full body, but dry like an irish stout. Average carbonation for a thick stout. (3.75)

A very nice Stout.
