Pouring the beer at cellar temp from the 22 oz bottle. The beer pours a solid dark black with a viscous thick pour. Almost no head develops just a thin brown edge layer.
Aroma is molassess, rich roasted malt and some brown sugar, just a hint of booze. I dont get any hops showing up on the nose. First sip reveals a silky smooth texture, mild almost non-existent carbonation and a very thick body. The beer is robust in the flavor department with some dark cocoa chocolate bar (90%ish), roasted malt, some molassess and a bit of warm booze on the finish. The hops are completely overewhelmed here and dont make an appearance.
THe beer is actually amazingly drinkable for its ABV and thickness, makes a perfect cold weather evening brew. Would definitely buy again, just wish it was easier to find around me.
