look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
On tap in a 10oz. glass at Bodega on 1/22/10
Very dark, scorched brown - near black; highlights of crimson on the edges. Small tan head offers thin retention. Hardly any lacing.
Sweet & boozy aroma of great complexity. Notes of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, molasses, maple, brown sugar, toffee & maybe a spot of caramel. Whiskey is apparent but not overbearing.
Black Biscuit tastes as the nose would suggest. Bold, roasted malts: dark chocolate is more apparent than coffee, though. Plenty dark sugars: brown sugar, molasses & hints of toffee. Swaths of maple throughout. Slightly more sweet than bitter. Earthy notes of wood. Whiskey is prominent with vanilla undertones. Notions of dark bread.
Full body with smooth & creamy carbonation - almost silky. Roasted residuals & booze linger on the finish. Fairly intense alcohol heat.
Drinkability is rather slow due to intensity but dang if this isn't a tasty beer. I'm not entirely sure how it made to Ohio; I'm certainly glad it did.

2010 vintage on tap at Barcade Brooklyn.
Dark brown body, nearly opaque. Some tan head and silky brown lace up top. Too bad it smells like nail polish. Acetone++
Old ale malt base joins the dry yeast and maple barrels to create a unique profile. Boozy, roasty, spikes of sweetness, finishes dry. Not much biscuit left. Did I mention boozy?
Glad I got to try this, but I wouldn't seek it out again.

Had what might be the last hand bottle from a quarter barrel and this beer did not disappoint the crowd. It held up was the general thought. The carbonation was nearly perfect for an ale. The flavors were great, sweet syrup, chocolate and strong boozy feel. Good stuff.
