Reviewed 1/11/09. Poured from bottle to goblet.
A: Mahogany brown, near black pour with a pillow-like head layer that sits atop my beer for days. Tiny bubbles show the immense carbonation this beer contains.
S: Chocolaty malt, subtle mushrooms, figs, brown sugar, caramel and rich molasses. Complicated aroma profile.
T: Continued old world tastes. Portobello, balsamic, figs, candied sugar and molasses all stand out.
M: Highly carbonated. Deliciously smooth and creamy. Rich, but light on the palate.
D: A great beer. Unlike others. I would love to pair this with a nice rustic dish or a mushroom risotto. Wonderful!
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
