Release #13. Poured from a bomber into a snifter, the beer is jet black, thick and oily on the pour, with a halo of light brown head. It just looks thick and big. Terrific. The aromas are bittersweet, with notes of cocoa nib, coffee, vanilla, bourbon, woody notes, crème, and earthy highlights. This smells huge and layered. Flavors are very robust, with a heavy roasted character, solid cocoa nib backbone providing sweetness and bitterness, coffee highlights, a solid blast of whiskeyand booze that supplies a building warmth, earthy notes, and a steady flow of spice throughout. This is a beast. Very layered flavor profiles throughout. The body is robust, smooth, almost velvety. The aftertaste is heavily roasted, with cocoa nib, whiskey, and subtle crème. The finish is smooth, with a subtle boozy edge, and an overall dry, lingering feel. Solid, big, monster of a beer. This was a workout! Fantastic!
