This was the first beer over 6% ABV ever legally brewed in Alabama. Served on cask at the 09 Magic City Brewfest.
I actually found myself wishing for some more carbonation. As cool as the cask tapping ceremony was, i'm not sure this beer is best served on cask.
Flavor was good. Not earth shattering. I felt some burn in my throat while drinking which i thought might be from some chiles, but Jason (the brewer) said no, no chiles. Vanilla bean. So maybe the vanilla bean gave it a little burn? Not sure.
Enjoyable, but i really look forward to having it on draught soon with some more carbonation to see what that does with it.
Update 7/23/09: just had it on tap at the Clyde. The full production run of this baby blows the trial run cask away. Earth-shatteringly good. Some dark cherry, rum, lots of chocolate, pronounced hop kick, thick as molasses (not really, but humor me), darker than pure evil. A beautiful monster.
One of the greats. Good People is going to put Bham on the beer geek map; mark my words.

On tap at Hop City, Birmingham.
A: A very dark brown, almost black, with a mocha colored one finger head that lay there staring up at me. Curtainy lacing.
S: Chocolate, anise, leather, malty. Heavy duty.
T: strong, hefty, robust. Semi sweet chocolate arrives with malts and light espresso notes. A thick, dry finish. What a great sipper.
M: medium with medium, frothy carbonation.
O: A stellar IRS. One of the best surprises from my sampling at the bar. For a stout, this is a real easy drinker. The wait staff think highly of this overweight gem. Recommended.
Serving type: on-tap
