1 year old bottle.
Appearance- Dark ruddy brown with ruby highlights when held up to the light. Poured into a snifter produces a one finger head that quickly falls to a light but consistent stream of bubbles. Leaves moderate lacing as it goes down.
Aroma - Perfumey/vinous alcohol, not hot or solventy. Slight coco-nib aroma followed by toasty malts.
Taste - Is pleasant but not what I was hoping for/expecting. Slightly sweet upfront, I have a feeling this is a function of the aging. Followed by luscious vinous characters and a slight alcohol bitterness. Ends on soft notes of chocolate, but I'm missing the coffee component (aging?)
Mouthfeel - Chewy and velvety with low carbonation. High alcohol keeps it from being sticky and allows for a clean finish.
Overall - A nice and interesting beer that did well with a year of age. I could stand for more of the coffee aspect of the "mocha" but still very interesting. Would pair well with some braise lamb saddles.
