Batch 69 and shared with pghlee. Poured dark brown with a creamy finger of nougat snickers head. Molasses, licorice with a touch of smoke on the aroma. Nip of carbonation sting on the tongue @ first, which gradually vanished. Very bright middle flavors of sweet molasses with a hint of chocolate. 10% alcohol felt in back of throat, but very balanced for such a complex, unique brew.
Serving type: bottle

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.
Serving type: on-tap
