Reviewed from notes; on-tap at Blue Palms Brewhouse in Hollywood. Served in a non-branded straight-walled tulip (similar to a short stemmed heavy wine glass).
Extremely dark brown, approaching black in color. Opaque and topped with a resiliant desert sand head that fades to a wide ring.
Aroma is very distinctive, though I can't place it. Very spirity, raisins, dates, cherries, and an almost yeasty funk.
Roasted malt, coffee, dried fruit, and some sourness. Alcohol comes through strongly. Bitterness brings to mind fruit-pits rather than hops. This is probably a bit of an acquired taste.
On the higher end of medium bodied, kind of chewy, though it isn't a slick beer. Very warming, a bit of astringency, strong carbonation subsumed by the ABV.
Because of how heavy it is and the unusual aroma and flavors within, I find this to be a bit of a chore to drink.
Serving type: on-tap
