Bottled on 11/27/13.
Pours opaque very dark brown with cola edges. The 1/2 inch of khaki head quickly fades to just a thin ring on top and leaves thin spotty lace.
Smell is of grainy roasted malt up front; similar to whole wheat bread. Dark chocolate and faint black coffee bring up the rear.
Taste is of dark, almost smoky malt, a hint of black coffee and a faint hoppy finish.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with higher carbonation.
Everything clicks here. Inviting aromas, impressive appearance, delicious flavors and nice body. At 5.5 ABV, I may have found my new go-to session brew.
