Bottle to a tulip.
A: A fairly aggressive pour results in a finger tall tan head atop a solid black brew. Some lacing.
S: Plenty of chocolate, toasty to burnt malt and notes of coffee bean. Very rich in smell.
T: Big sugary sweetness up front that caves to coffee and bitter burnt notes in the middle, but remains very sweet. Chocolate is not prominent as it was in the smell, as simple sugar reigns. Finish returns to a roasty layer.
M: Very smooth and rich, only the lightest bits of dryness on the roof of the mouth in the swallow.
D: The bottle calls this one "Dark, Rich, and Sexy". I agree wholeheartedly with the first two, but this beer doesn't arouse me as much as I had hoped.
Serving type: bottle
