12 oz dark brown stubby bottle. Served in an Allagash goblet.
I've had at least 20 of these over the years, but thought I had already reviewed it. I remember it well, but thought it best to purchase a new 4 pack
It pours an oily pitch black. When held up to light, a bit of dark chocolate brown peeks through.
The head is tan and very firm, although the lacing slides faster than expected.
Big booming smells of ground coffee and chocolate liquor roll out at first pour. Smells of roasted malt, rye, burnt sugar, dark rum and hay follow as it warms. A smell of dried wild flowers is noticed in the distance.
The taste at first gulp, reminds me of an iced espresso with sugar. Then the flavors begin to get deeply complex. Dark chocolate, brown barley, rye crackers, rum, plums and mild citrus roll in. There's a bit of an astringent tang in the aftertaste. Interesting!
The body is almost oily and very full (perhaps a tad too heavy...but sort of expected).
It's rich and decadent and does not make for a good lawn-mowing beer, but it's a great cool, damp night on the beach with a fire beer.
