Batch Number 72 Poured into a Koningshoeven Chalice black with a nice tan head. Whoa, the smell of this beer is strong!!! Lots of nut scents with a strong fruit scent, almost like grapefruit. It smells delicious!!! And the taste doesn't fail!!! HOLY COW. The flavors are all over the place. First taste of roasted malts, then roasted malts, some raisins, then more roasted malt. And right at the end of the flavor circus is smoked wood. I would almost describe the smoke flavor like Mesquite wood. This would be absolutly great with Mesquite Slow smoked BBQ Chicken. I can't believe how great these tastes going across my tounge are. The mouthfeel is strong in alcohol, but perfect in carbonation. The head remains in a thin layer all the way down the glass with good lacing.
Overall, I am in love. This is an outstanding beer. Unbelievably outstanding!!!

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.
