Poured from a bomber into a snifter, the beer pours a very dark, blackish coloring with a tall, dense, creamy, bubbly, cream-tan colored head. This head lingers quite a bit, too, making this a pretty beer. Small trails of carbonation throughout the body here and there, too. Aromas of booze forward, with rich sweetness of molasses, cocoa, vanilla, oak, and roasted notes. Smells rich and very layered, but not overpowering. Flavors are a little more heavily roasted forward, with a sharpness to the charred and boozy highlights. Coffee and very bitter chocolate forward, as well, with the vanilla and molasses notes coming in the background, but not with enough force to balance. This one is big in the bitter department, and the increased ABV combines to form an underlying sharpness in the otherwise robust, smooth body. Warmth builds as you go, and the aftertaste is a bittersweet blend that is more balanced than the palate experience thus far. More strength to the molasses and cream notes at the end. The finish is slick, crisp, with only a slight linger of rich sweet and booze. Solid brew, but a workout for your palate.
