Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at Peg's. Served in a Peg's snifter glass.
A: Very dark, looks black except around the rim where it appears as very dark brown. Minimal visible carbonation, and forms a ring of brown foam. Essentially opaque.
S: Big roasted malt, chocolate, a bit of coffee, raisins, oaky, boozy (rum). Really an amazingly deep, rich aroma.
T: Follows the nose. Chocolate, oak, booze/rum, dark fruit, raisins (prunes maybe?). The drying tannins mesh so well with the sweet malt. Great flavor. I did not appreciate any coconut flavor that many others have noticed.
M: Smooth creamy mouthfeel, heavy-bodied, and only moderate alcohol for the style - the barrel-aging doesn't seem overdone. Low carbonation.
O: Hype aside, this is really, really good. Very well done.
Serving type: on-tap
