22oz bottle poured into a pair of large snifters. Label says Release #19, 10.4% ABV, SLC #1261. Poured at fridge temperature, maybe 40ish.
Pours black, small, fast-fading light brown head. Too dark to tell whether it’s seriously carbonated or not. Smell is coffee, overwhelmingly coffee, super coffee, more so than this morning’s coffee. How do you make a beverage that smells more like coffee than coffee? I don’t understand. There’s also plenty of chocolate in the aroma. There might be a hint of smoke, which probably means a boatload that just happens to be completed covered up by the coffee.
Taste has lots of coffee, but is much more well rounded. The chocolate comes out more, the smoke balances it a little bit. Some mysterious sweetness, a little bit of black licorice. Very nice. Very interesting.
Mouthfeel is thick, slightly dry/gritty, nice. Overall, excellent beer.
If anything else pops up as it warms, I'll try to remember to update this review.
