Bottle pour from Wowcoolman’s tasting.

16% ABV per label.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, dark fruit, and alcohol. Taste is much the same with a very roasty and almost medicinal bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but it’s quite strong and intense.
