Brown silkscreened bomber into shaker pint.
A: pours thick and oily with a rich roasted brown color. Not really a head on it but I expected nine from a beer that is 13% abv. Rich chocolate colored bubbles formed and left with a thin light Brown ring around the glass. Beautiful in its darkness this beer allows no light through.
S: sweet ricbitterh coffee and alcohol notes up front. No chocolate in this one's nose but I do detect a hint of hop. Nothing like the pale ales and ipa that litter the northwest this hop smell is merely here to balance the beer.
T: tastes like the dark! Opens with an assault of roasted malt darkness. Followed by the alcohol sweetness. A slightly odd astringent note that makes me think of Belgian strong dark ale. This note really balances the beer, else it would be cloying. The wheat is hard to find among the strong dark flavors and the alcohol bite. Leaves a burnt bitter taste on the finish that helps it finish dry. Not able to discern the pecan but I am sure we it absent this beer would be quite different, like bay lead in soup you don't realize that it is important until it is not there.
M: smooth as creamy peanut butter and almost as thick. Goes down to easy for something so dangerously high alcohol. Excellent!
