12oz bottle of 2013 vintage from Davis Beer Shoppe enjoyed on 1 September 2013. Reviewed from notes.
A: Pours an opaque black with 1 finger of mocha-colored head. Very little bits of light show brown through the edges of the glass. Minimal lacing is left down the glass.
S: Strong malts up front with roastiness and smoke predominating. Alcohol and some dark fruit are also evident and follow the stronger malt and smoke character.
T/M: Smooth and smoky up front with dark fruits following. Cacao mid-sip leads into roasted coffee bitterness on the finish. The mouthfeel is thick but not oily with plenty of carbonation.
O: The smokiness is a little strong, but otherwise I really enjoyed this beer. I'm a bit dismayed that I forgot to pick up a 4-pack before I left; the price point is pretty good.
