look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured into a Duvel glass.
A: Head is a deep dark cola (black) color. Good persistent creamy white head. Lacing good but not spectacular. 4
S: Actually reminds me of rich chocolate ice cream. As expected, fairly highly hopped- citrus, nice DIPA-ish tangerine/malt dichotomy, and chartreuse (think the chartreuse note comes from pine/grassiness mixed with alcohol). Rich and interesting-smelling. Definitely chocolatey, maybe that's from the oak. 4.5
T: Again I think the oak comes across as chocolatey. Good acrid, bitter, earthy dryness with some nice hops breaking through. You get the occasional hint of residual sugar but it's largely undermined by roast bitterness, which I like. Very well balanced to my palate. Again, very chocolate ice creamy, although it ends very dry. 4.5
M: Very thick, viscous, but also somehow slick, furthering the "chocolate ice cream" impression. 4.5
O: This beer is a rich and decadent assault on the senses. Very, very solid (and delicious) beer. Almost too rich. Better than the coffee by a fair margin. 3.5
