BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - NOV 15, 2001
Black and dense with an impressive tan foam that sits well. Aroma is pretty subtle, some creaminess, a subdued coffee, and slight smokiness. This really doesn’t tell you about the boldness of flavors that follow. It’s thick in body but surprisingly drinkable with good signs of carbonation. A heavy malt sets in the flavor, with a deep roasty coffee flavor, more so than in other stouts I’ve tasted. There’s a less obvious caramel and creamy smoothness, while the aftertaste is dry and slightly bittering. The smooth, creamy coffee characteristics that dominate the flavor linger well and satisfyingly long into the aftertaste.
