3.88/5 rDev -10.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
12 oz bottle served in dogfish head pint glass.
A-Murky brownish color, white head dissipated fairly quickly, really doesn't look so appetizing-kind of like dirty pond water
S-Boozy, raisin/date fruits, brown sugar smell, slight sourdough smell, more like maple syrup as warms
T-Yeast, booze flavor, mild date like fruit, some cocoa and tobacco, low hop present, as it warms mild leather flavor, mild sour as well, very complex and not too sweet like other Strong darks.
M-Fizzes fairly quickly in mouth whih makes some of the flavors hard to taste, Swirled a bit and the carbo died down a little but gets in the way of the flavor during the first half of the beer, medium mouthfeel, fairly drying.
O-I really wanted to enjoy this beer but the overcarbonated feel made hard to taste and not so enjoyable an experience, Underlying flavors are complex but hard to taste for a while. I bet this is fantastic with at least 2 years of age on it.
