side-note: unfortunately this bottle is un-aged
Pours a deep, dark brownish-red color with an immensely billowy head that sadly resides too soon. Overwhelming notes of carmel, dark fruits, yeast and dough hit my nose almost immediately. The taste is of dark fruits, yeast, dough, carmel and simple roastiness. It's dryness actually accentuates the caramelized flavor quite well. All the flavors seemed to be accompanied by a sugary sweetness of molasses/ dark syrup. The Blue has a fairly full body that is nicely balanced by a surprisingly moderate amount of carbonation. Still goes down silky and leaves your mouth dry. Incredible beer...I would love to age this guy for a while and try it again.
