Genealogy of Morals, batches 1 & 2.

The beer is dark brown, nearing black, with a half inch of beige collar. The aroma offers roast, coffee, barrel character, red wine - smells great. Still lots of coffee presence. A hint of spice, perhaps cinnamon. Big barrel notes. Delicious beer. I prefer this to Damon and Port Damon, but Double Damon is superior IMO. Medium to full bodied and slick on the palate. Chocolate notes. hints of dessert wine. Very good.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Almost completely black. Reddish brown at the edges. Mocha head that is well retained.

Smell - Intense coffee immediately. Almost a smokey aroma, too. Red wine. A little bit of tannins.

Taste - Burnt malt, almost smokey malt character. Coffee flavor lends itself to the burnt malts. Red wine flavor is more prevalent in the finish, along with a bitter malt aftertaste. Intense flavors.

Mouthfeel - Not thick, but a palate wrecker of flavor. Intense in every respect. Medium heavy with ample carbonation.

Overall - Excellent combination of flavors. The barrel is unique and adds to the barrage of flavors that is this beer.
