Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date on the bottle cap of 20th May 2019, and poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: The beer poured pitch black with maybe just under one finger tan head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving nice stringy lacing.
Aroma: Aromas mainly of coffee and dark chocolate along with some slight cognac alcohol and raisin smells.
Taste: Espresso coffee dominates throughout along with a bit of dark chocolate leaving a long lingering bitter aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. A creamy beginning but dry finish.
Overall: I enjoyed this a lot as I regularly drink black coffee and the lingering bitter aftertaste was excellent. I would be very interested to try out all the different barrel aged versions if I ever get my hands on those bottles. However, this is not quite there at Founders Breakfast Stout level which is still my favourite non BA coffee based stout.
