Garage Project Mutiny on the Bounty

Brewery: Garage Project
Country: New Zealand
ABV: 11.2%
Style: Foreign / Export Stout
Other Notes: South Pacific Export Stout

Brewer Description: (from bottle) Come on a journey below the 45th parallel. Inspired by the ill fated expedition of the HMS Bounty, Mutiny is a very South Pacific take on an export stout, brewed with breadfruit, roasted plantain, coconut sugar, toasted coconut and Tahitian vanilla. Spirituous heat elegantly balanced with deep, rich coconut vanilla sweetness in an ebony black brew of intense complexity. A voyage to the true heart of darkness.

Intro: A 650ml bottle with no clear bottled on or best before date. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with a just over one finger tanned head that had decent retention and left some spotty lacing.
Aroma: Vanilla, coconut, roasted malts, chocolate, biscuit, bread and banana.
Taste: Roasted malts, sweet and creamy milk chocolate and vanilla, a touch of bitter dark chocolate and toasted coconut with hints of dark fruit and nuttiness.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, full bodied, light booze and low carbonation.
Overall: A very nice self described Export Stout. Breadfruit was used in the description, but I have no idea what this is meant to taste like. Nevertheless, this is a great sipper for a cold night.
