4.55/5  rDev +6.8%

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a Teku glass. Bottled on 5/15/14 stamped on the label.

Pours an opaque black color, about 50-60 SRM with a khaki colored head that dissipates slowly. Visible lacing all around the glass as it is consumed with a constant ring around the glass just at the surface of the beer.

Smells of roasted malt, sweet caramel, rich hop oils, and grass.

Tastes sweet upon first sip with a nice chocolatey middle and a dry roasted malt finish with a pleasant bitterness from the hop content.

Very slick on the tongue with a slight prickliness that leaves the mouth yearning for another sip. Leaves the mouth feeling dry upon swallowing but definitely compliments the palate.

One of the best ABA styles I have had the pleasure of consuming. Quite drinkable despite the 8.3% abv and very easy on the palate. Would definitely seek this one out.

Cheers!

I poured this into a pint glass.
The appearance was a black color with a one finger white to off white foamy head.
Light lacing strings its way down the glass.
The smell had a blend of nice citrusy to roasty coffee and a light underscore of chocolate.
The taste was pretty much the same.
The mouthfeel was sharp and blended the smells onto my tongue in a slightly harsh way.
Overall, solid black ale, but Baranof's is better.
