Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. 6/14

Pours very dark black. Solid black. No foam. Still.

Sweet chocolate malty nose. Light coffee. Lighter porter taste, some licorice. Bitter hits hard at the end. Smooth throughout. Bittering hangs out a little long.

Just ok.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep brown, almost black. Small khaki head. Thin collar.

Smell - Nutty malts. Roasted dark chocolate. Schwartzbier-like aroma.

Taste - Chocolate. Nutty malts. Bready malts. Hoppy and earthy finish. NIce.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Clean finish. Medium carbonation.

Overall - This suffered from being so late in the tasting, but it's a very clean and flavorful beer.

Pours pitch black save for a thin ring of ruby around the base of the glass when held up to a bright light. 2 Finger dark tan head that recedes a bit too quickly leaving hardly any lacing.

Coffee and dark chocolate on the nose with dark fruit and a wonderful floral spice aroma that kicked it up a notch for me.

Taste is dominated by coffee and dark chocolate at first, but that pleasant bitterness mellows as the beer warms allowing the dark fruits to shine through. Some tart citrus as well.

Medium full in body with moderate syrup and a light to moderate burn in the throat and a nice slick coating in the mouth.

It seems this batch is aging nicely, no problem with the alcohol here. Not what I would call hot at all. It seems to be mellowing well. Definitely a keeper.
