Batch 72. It pours out a deep dark brownish-black with easily one of the best heads I've seen. The tan head is mousse-like and the retention is phenomenal. The aroma is of oak, roasted nuts, chocolate, and dark, sweet syrup, like molasses. The taste brings simliar notes but in a much more complex fashion. The taste brings about lots of dark chocolate, wood, nuts, and again molasses. The Adam s super silky in the mouth and has a little bit of an alcohol burn...but it is very welcome. I'm really starting to love this style.

on tap at the brewery, Portland
Oily chocolate-black with beige ring.
Blackberry, black tea, and a bit of ash on the nose.
Black bread, black currant and plum jam, big brown sugar/candy middle, a bit of wood and some sherry.
Musty barrel finish and hot whiskey linger.
Medium to full, round, chewy, a bit of heat.
Lots of depth, though some oxidation notes, too. Plenty of sweetness, though not so much on the leather notes. I don’t know enough about dark Dortmunders to say if this comes close, but it’s a solid dark ale with some Belgian characteristics.

Deep brown to nearly black in color. A faint bit of khaki colored head rests on top. Brussels lacing is evident. I get a strong aroma of plums and figs along with with alcohol. The mouth is sticky warm due to the alcohol. The taste is strong with a bit of a vinous note and loads of dark malt. The finish is on the sweeter side due to the heavy amount of dark malt.
