A: Pours a murky garnet/brown. Dark, but nothing approaching black. Finger and a half of beige head with moderate dissipation and good lacing.
S: Mocha, toffee, dark fruit, cacao and molasses. Great nose. Flavors leap from the glass.
T: Toffee, tobacco, dried dark fruits, coffee. Awesome finish that is nutty with notes of...leather and a bit of smoke.
M: Seemed a tad thin. For a beer with such pronounced flavors, there could be a little more body.
O: Not really "reserve" status in my book. Good, but not transcendent. And if you're going to wrap a bottle cap in foil, the beer should be transcendent.
Serving type: bottle
