Thanks to nickd717 for this beer
Served in a tulip glass
12oz brown bottle with Batch number 79. Not sure what date that means, but pretty sure it was brewed recently
A: Dark brown, almost black beer, with brown evident on the edges. A creamy tan head of 3 fingers with good retention and a nice amount of lacing.
S: Wow. Some really intense aromas here. Dark malts and fruits, with hints of raisin, anise and molasses. No real hop aromas I could discern. Very complex and deeply rich nose
T: Tastes much like it smells. Toasted malts with maybe even an oak type of woodiness. Chocolates, liquorice, molasses and dark fruits, plus a slight smoky character perhaps. Alcohol warmth is there. Well balanced taste, not overly sweet or bitter.
M: Full bodied, chewy feel, with a slightly roasted malt bitterness in the finish. Smooth and rich is this
D: This is an intense, flavorful, boozy beer that is a slow sipper. I greatly enjoyed it as a nightcap.
Serving type: bottle
