4.5/5 rDev +5.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A - Dark brown, substantial head with good lacing, ruby high lights.
S - Notes of dark fruit, alcohol, hops, and lots of malt.
T - Malty toasty flavors, accompanied by a slight roast, hops, and alcoholic notes. Dark fruit, raisin, etc. Appropriate bitterness
M - Full body, great warmth, with a good carbonation.
This is a great beer, it has great malt complexity without being muddy, a good hop kick, and some very nice fermentation characteristics (alcohol, esters, etc.)

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.

4.13/5 rDev -3.3%

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.
