Batch 85

Pours dark brown, completely opaque. Has a creamy dark beige head that leaves great lacing and sticks around a while. Beautiful looking beer

Amazing and completely unique aroma - it smells like a hearty old world ale. Huge complex and rich dark fruit notes - raisins, figs, plums. Very solid creamy chocolate and as it warms leather and tobacco come out. Phenomenal blend of fruit, earth and chocolate.

Just as great as the aroma. Big dark fruits - incredibly rich, each very distinctive and work phenomenally well with the other flavors. The chocolate has a great unifying effect of the leather and tobacco, and fruits. The body is full and smooth. Perfection

This is and has been my favorite dark beer. Nothing like it. Really, really want to try the barrel variants.
