Finally tried the beer that I share a name with. Thought it was my 200th review... turns out it's #201... oh well. 12 oz., batch 48, no freshness date. I saw gunsmoke shoot out from under the lid right as I cracked it. After removing the cap it proceeded to foam up, almost spilling over, but I poured just in time. It's a murky (maybe too murky) dark dark red with some sediment and 1 inch of beige head that retains 1/4" throughout, which is surprising for a beer of it's strength. Smells of coffee, chocolate and caramel, sweetness/fruitiness, and tobacco. It's thick and extremely smooth on the palate, with flavors of citric hops, chocolate, tobacco juice, fruitiness, and a bitterness that is definitely there but subdued by the massive amount of malts. It's so smooth I can barely feel the last sip in my mouth. Like silk. I shared this 12 oz. but I could easily drink 2 of them by myself.

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%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
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.
