I've worked together some pictures from Darl Lord Day 06, and I'm about to use them in a blog entry....but first....BEER! I figure a bomber O this stuff ought to loosen me up a bit.... here we go...
Beautiful. The stream out of the bottle (with the light behind) is a nice cola colour. In the glass, even held directly to the light, this colour only emerges jufrom the black just at the edges. The head is nice, even darkish tan- one finger, and very smooth.
The smell is beautiful- alcohol and dark molasses hit right up front, with spice, wood, and cherries. There's a great sour spicy sweet thing going on here.
Right up front, I get coffee, cherries, and oak. As it elvolves, the wood stays put and some spiciness (peppery) and hoppy flavours are added at the end. Rather nice- one might even say (if they looked at the score) exceptional. I'd once tasted this side-by-side with regular Yeti, and it was like chewing on an oak chip. On its own, I really don't get that at all. Very pleasing to the palate.
Carbonation hits low up front, and swells towards the middle- never becoming too much for the hearty liquid. Just slightly oily, but not unpleasantly so.
This one could keep me nice an oiled up for a long time. If you like higher ABVs in sessioners, stop here.
