Poured into a tulip glass. 4 months in the beer closet.

A: Black with a half-finger mocha head that dissipates to foam. Spotty lacing.

S: Chocolate, anise, leather.

T: Chocolate comes on smooth and sweet. Sultry, decadent, robust. A bit of anise and licorice follow. A terrific finish. The 10% slides in with a mellowing haze. Sip and be awed.

M: Medium to heavy with medium to heavy carbonation. Chewy.

O: A bargain at $6.50 a bomber at Hop City, Atlanta. Goes so well with a slice of Hershey chocolate pie with almonds (a taste bud orgasm).
