Samples tasted during the Pre-ZBF festival at Alvinne. Beer poured a deep, dark black colored body with a thick tan head. The nose had strong notes of roasted malt, coffee, cocoa. Taste provides some further wood character along with nice coffee and cocoa notes and there is a bit of sweetness as well. The higher abv is present but not overly boozy. Full body and full of taste. Worth seeking out.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

2012 vintage.

Pours a deep, deep brown, with a sense tan head. Cherry, balsamic, bubblegum, and light hints of dark chocolate roast form the aroma. Highly unusual. Flavor reveals similar tart cherry and vinegar, but roast malt and dark cocoa counter and dominate. The finish is slightly roast bitter. Quite complex! Banana and roasted malt round out the profile. There's a lightly phenolic character that's offputting.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Had on tap at Frisco taphouse Columbia on 5/28/14

A-Midnight black colour, huge two finger dark brown head, that eventually dies down to a ring.

S-Nose is a little bourbon, that gives way to sugary vanilla barrel character.

T-Flavor is similar to the aroma bit not as good

M-Mouthfeel is a little watery but well balanced.

O-Overall a great RIS that I think could be even better with the taste and mouthfeel
