Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2020-10-01. Canned on 2020-09-29.
Pours opaque with a beautiful, frothy and creamy mocha foam; a huge helping of it make for a wonderful looking pour. No lacing.
Aroma is hazelnut, chocolate, and very sweet caramel. There isn't much else going on. The hazelnut is extremely prominent almost making the beer one noted on the nose at times.
Taste isn't far off from the nose. Hazelnut, chocolate and caramel. Touch of roast. The hazelnut is once again the focal point. Roast tries to beat back the caramel buts fails, allowing the sweetness to linger along with the chocolate and hazelnut.
Big body with little to no carbonation. Dry finish that has hints of alcohol burn in the mouth and creamy.
This is an extremely bold stout, well made. For my taste buds it just isn't a fit. The hazelnut is too much from the start with the caramel sweetness adding to the unbalance. I wouldn't have it again. Enjoy!
