4.3/5  rDev +15.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

22oz bomber poured into a 25oz snifter, pours opaque and near black with a tall, foamy tan head that holds great retention and leaves lacing on the side of the glass. Malty and earthy nose has notes of anise, chocolate, peat, soil, woodsy, boozy as it warms. Tastes are complex with dark chocolate, pine, wood, earthy, smoky, roasted malt, vanilla, burnt caramel, and booze. Mouth-feel is chewy and viscous, full-bodied, creamy, velvety smooth with ample carbonation. Finishes bitter with roast and pine. Overall, I thought this was excellently put together. Great complexity, great balance, awesome!

(Served in a tulip)
A- This beer pours a jet black body with a thin cocoa tan head that is supported by a slow microbubble carbonation that slides up the sides of the glass.

S- The plastic aroma and dubble yeast esters lead to a stout earthiness and a finish of some woody dank hops that are dark aswell. There is a roasted black malt bite and a hop bitterness in the finish.

T- The sweet crystal malt and circus peanut esters blend with an alcohol taste the mixes with the dark hops in the finish. There is a roasted black malt bite and a hop bitterness that lingers after each sip. Some chocolate malt and dried fruit esters come through as it opens aswell.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a creamy texture and an alcohol warmth in the finish.

O- This beer is complex but a bit chaotic with flavors all over the place. Some plastic and other odd flavors are in their but most ore nice layers of malt and hops and esters.
