big thanks to nhindian for hooking this one up. enjoyed from a voodoo brewing oversized barrel room snifter.
bottle #843 1-18-13
a - pried the wax off and opened the beer. brew poured a fairly awe inspiring silk black. the beer literally glistened and i swear i saw it wink at me as the big creamy tan mocha head formed and then vanished leaving sparse bubble islands. simply gorgeous.
s - holy crap, i can smell chocolate from across the room. deep decadent chocolate and vanilla with the trademark intense heat from the pappy barrels (maybe its just me, but i always feel like pappy aged beers are boozier than other barrels...but the booze is pretty smooth). some wood and licorice.
t - i'm a fan of black magick in general, but hot dog if putting it in a barrel doesn't make it better. this beer is pretty much perfect. everything in the right place. great chocolate notes, no booziness at all. perfect thickness. like dessert shake...not a beer. just amazing.
m - WOW. mouth jumped out at me immediately. this is a meal in a glass. big and bold and chewy. thick, but just the right thickness. not boozy at all. smooth. full. rich. bold.
o - overall, i'm floored. this is one of the best beers i've ever had. holy moly. just wow...
