bottle courtesy of rjocobs6.
batch 76 into my founders snifter.
a - pours a murky, dark brown shade, nearly an opaque black. gave me a thin cap of sudsy, tan head than calmed to a film slowly. leaves a few thin legs of lacing in the glass.
s - massive sweet dark fruitiness. raisin, plum, fig, faint chocolate.
t - wow. starts off with chocolate malt, then dark fruits roll in as do notes of leather. a candi sugar sweetness takes over then fades into a smokey, peaty finish. slight alcohol spiciness and faint hop bitterness both come out as the beer warms.
m - full bodied with the perfect amount of carbonation. finer co2 profile, slight alcohol warming. amazingly smooth. one of the best textures i have ever experienced in a beer.
o - a wonderful beer. falls in the dangerously drinkable category, not because you don't notice the alcohol taking effect, but because it's so damn good that you sip it faster than you probably should. worth seeking out.

3.9/5 rDev -8.7%

Poured into a teku, dark brown and murky, with no head. Smell up front is smoke, a dark fruits, raisins, figs a hint of cherry skin. Getting a lot of smoke in the taste. It's a subdued smoke, not like a rauch or anything, but it's definitely there. Was not expecting it and it overshadows some of the other flavors. No carb issue here. As it warms, some of the dark fruit, caramel, burnt sugar flavor is coming out. Super complex. This might have gone over my head. Worth a try for sure. I'll try some with some age on it, see how that compares.
