4.2/5 rDev +1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Ive been wanting to try this one for over a month now, ever seeing it on tap in waterworks. been meaning to pick up a bottle for a few weeks now but I've been distracted
Hopefully it will be worth the wait
Appearance: Extremely dark brown, but not completely fading out to black. Id say it probably 32-35 SRM. little head (maybe a quarter of a finger) that quickly disapates
smell: Heavy chocolate, roasted barley, dark fruits, and candy sugar, with just a hint of bready, biscuit malts. My nose litterly get lost in the glass the smell is so good, and because of that, Ill give this one the best rating I can give it
Taste: Strong smokey flavors, with powdery black chocolate/grinded up coffee after taste. they certainly got the "robust" part right in this brew, this stuff is great
Mouthfeel: Slick, dark, and syrupy. but not too syrupy. I would describe it as very watered down Hershey syrup, that leaves a sweet sticky feeling on your tongue.
Overall: Im going to give this one a 4/5
It has an exceptional smell, and a good taste/mouthfeel, but it can be a bit too abrasive and sticky at time. Now don't get me wrong, I like a good strong sticky beer more than the next guy, but it kinda overdoes it a bit.
and it needs more camel and coffee in the flavor, and a bitt less smoked and roasted barley. Overall I would probably have this brew again if the price was right
defiantly a great beer for a ice cream beer float
Serving type: bottle
