look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from 750 ml. bottle into my Orval chalice.
A: Dark brown with dark bluish purple hues. Light carbonation pours into a 1 finger foamy, off white head. Quickly disintegrates leaving nothing behind. No lacing to speak of. Like a nice red, color really thins as the brew approaches the edges of the glass.
S: Roasted malt, brown sugar, molasses, bittersweet chocolate, and nuts, and maybe a bit of a light citrus tone.
T: A lightly sweet syrupy malt. Nutty. Roasted coffee beans. A bit of butterscotch.
M: Strangely light body although very hearty and robust. A real bite of carbonation. Pungent aftertaste.
D: Great drinkability. 'nuff said.
Solid atmosphere. Appearance is decent, nose is great. Complex, balanced flavor. Alot in there, but really smooth, velvety feel. This is a great quaff.
