Batch #54. 12oz. bottle poured into a tulip-style glass. It pours a deep rich brown color with the most head I've ever seen on a beer. It took about 10 minutes to pour. Despite the massive foam, there is only a little lacing. The smell is very malty and strong with cocoa and plums, fairly sweet. The taste is malty at first with raisins and chocolate up front. A bit of an alcohol and hops kick to the finish. The mouthfeel is fairly nice and thick. The drinkability is fair for this very 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
