0.65 l bottle from 'Ace Drinks', 2019 vintage, release #6 at 12.7% abv, brewed in Colorado but counts as a Utah tick. Pitch black with a thin, frothy, almost stable, light brown head. Intensely sweetish-malty, gently roasty and a little boozy aroma of dark chocolate, mocca, caramel, hazelnut and maybe some peanut butter with a touch of whisky. Very sweet, malty, gently roasty taste of mocca, dark chocolate, caramel, hazelnut, some whisky and hints of dark fruits, followed by a long, quite roasty-bitter, minimally boozy finish. Full body, smooth and slightly oily mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. A beast of a Stout, really intense and heavy, quite well-balanced even if very sweet with nicely subtle whisky flavours. Don't really get the peanuts but it's super tasty anyway.
