Bottle shared at the monthly bottle share held at Flask Fine Wines in Studio City, CA.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and char aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, char, and slight vanilla flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with solid roast and char aspects all around.

Serving type: bottle.

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is jet black with mahogany highlights around the edges, and a frothy, low profile, dense, light tan head. Aromas of roasted highlights, toasted bread, bitter coffee, hints of vanilla, hints of booze, and some earthy and woody highlights. Smells aren't overpowering, but very inviting. Flavors are bitter coffee forward, with heavily roasted qualities. Wood characteristics, old world fruit rich sweetness, and hints of smoke. There is also a building warmth from the increased ABV. This is deep and layered. Robust body, but crisp enough to stay true to style. The aftertaste is heavy roast, subtle smoke, and bitterness. Smooth, slightly dry finish. This is a big beer, and it is damn tasty!
