Batch 81 bottle poured into pint glass.
Appearance: Brown, deep mahogony body with a huge khaki head. Great retention and lacing around glass and top of beer.
Smell: Brown sugar, spice, dark fruits, molasses, a little bit of honey, and caramel.
Taste: Sweet throughout the sip, but it's a composed sweetness. It's not a sugar bomb. More molasses, caramel, spices, brown sugar, all right from the aromas. Great presence of hops towards the finish. Great balance between sweet and bitter.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Smooth. Good amount of carbonation. It feels like a session beer to be honest. I like it but it doesn't match the rest of the beer. Feels out of character.
Overall: Favorite old ale. The hops in the finish is a good counter for the great amount of sweetness throughout the beer. Definitely not too sweet. Aromas and tastes are spectacular.

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.

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.
