12oz Bottle from 2010 - thanks to pushkinwow for this
Appearance - Brown colour with pretty much no head. I can't see much carbonation due the darkness of the beer and there isn't much lacing on the sides of the glass. The bottle opened without a much of a pop.
Smell - Malts, raisins, chocolate, leather, earthiness
Taste & Mouth - The beer has a very low amount of carbonation and I can taste chocolate mixed with malts and some raisins. There are also notes of herbs and some butterscotch. It ends with a malty sweet aftertaste.
Overall – The alcohol is very well hidden and the taste is fantastic. Unfortunately my bottle seemed to be a little flat so I don't think this was a fair representation of the beer. I still enjoyed it and I will be on the lookout for another bottle.

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.
