its taken me 3 years vintage to fully appreciate the character, depth, and complexity of this beer. amazing this much flavor, no barrel aging.
beautiful darkest brown to black beer with a great looking chocolate cap. big aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, even some hops. tastes opens with big chocolate, superb roast, vinous notes of white wine, grapes, dark fruits. thick and so very rich, even a little vanilla and molasses presence. perfectly balanced, lots of puckering hoppy bitterness leading to that perfect dry finish. aftertaste lingers forever, leaving your palate to wonder what the hell just crushed it.
a true icon, and one of this years best.
