22 oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau glass. Bottled on 5/22. Consumed on 10/27.
A - Brownish black. Poured a 1 finger mocha colored head. Mostly dissipated. No lacing around edges of glass.
S - Very fragrant. Dark chocolate, amaretto, Irish cream, roasted coffee, and dried fig.
T - Bitter chocolate, roasted coffee, anise, some coffee acids, espresso, and dark fruit (sour cherry and dried fig. Dark fruit adds some sweetness. Does not hide ABV completely, but alcohol notes are subtle.
M - Creamy and warming. Carbonation well balanced with viscosity. Luxurious foaming in mouth. Very well done.
O - Flavorful well textured beer. Enjoyed tremendously. Highly recommended.
