look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a bottle dated March 28, 2013
A- Pours a completely opaque black fluid. It produces 1-2 inches of brown/tan head, that faded slowly and left a decent amount of residual lacing.
S - Hmmm, I'm going to go with chocolate and coffee. Yep, very nice bitter chocolate balanced nicely with rich coffee, with an oak presence and burnt malt. Yummy.
T- Similar to the nose, but it really outshines the smell. The balance is really quite good. The chocolate is the most prominent, but it is not too sweet. The coffee and chocolate are bitter, but not overly so. The oakiness is faint and there is a touch of vanilla in there too.
M- Drinks very smoothly, with a chewy taste, but goes down well with a nice aftertaste. Subtle carbonation. The alcohol is noticeable ,but it doesn't detract from the overall balance.
O - Excellent beer. I have always heard good things about this beer and the compliments are well deserved. I think its strength is the delicious richness that is so well balanced with the bitterness. It has a good amount of complexity and it is well worth trying.
