Review by Beer
Appearance: Dark black body and a brown fluffy head. Very textured look that
poured on the thick side. The bottle art is pretty sweet too.
Smell: Syrupy milk chocolate, light oak, mild whisky barrels, and roasted coffee
textures round out the dominant aromas. Kind of a damp and dark roasted smell.
Maybe a touch milky with faint sweetness.
Taste: Huge dark roasted backbone to this beer. Smoke and char shine (especially
when warm) a bit over the richness of the roasted body. Mild wood, bitter
chocolate, and maybe a hint of booze in the finish. Small vanilla in there for
good measure. Makeup is mostly awesome dry roasted flavors, bitter chocolate
nibs, and a slight milky sweetness all packed atop roasted coffee.
Mouthfeel: A bit dry on the tongue in the aftertaste, lightly charred and
gritty. Very reminiscent of coffee with that burnt, roasted mouthfeel. With that
said, this is still a smoothly drinkable beer with a grainy/gritty base.
Overall: Fuzzy, big bodied, rich roasty notes, with lots of drinkability. The
huge roasted coffee and bitter chocolate tones make this beer delectable. Paired
nicely with truffles, helping enhance the subtle smokiness. Superb stout.
Definitely seek this one out.
