3.7/5 rDev -1.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
In the bottle this has a deep sweet chocolate quality with some earth and some lively fine granulated sugar. A shame that that such a gorgeous beer to smell diliutesd so much once it hits the glass.. Still, it looks great in the glass being extremely dark brown with an easy effortless 2 inchg rocky tan head and rings of lacing with every sip. There is an interesting deep damp sweet taste here with some dry earth bittereness and a trace of the forementioned granulated sugar. Not at all heavily bodies but there is a siggestion of some weight there which brings something enveloping and dominant to the mouthfeel. Very interesting and thought provoking but funnily not a beer which really goes for pleasure.
