Bottle pour at the pre-FWIBF bottle share held at the Adelaide Inn in Paso Robles, CA.

2010 vintage.

Pours an opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, char, and burnt sugar aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, caramel, and char flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but very boozy.
