From notes 01/11/11. On tap at the Dancing Bear in Waco, TX.
A- Motor oil black in color with one finger of deep, dark brown head. I couldn't see any bubbles because it was so dark, but I could see a few popping on the surface.
S- Metallic, cocoa, burnt malt, faint leather.
T/M- Extreme chocolate, alcohol, velvety and rich, viscous.
D- Excellent balance of flavor, carbonation, and alcohol. Bitter finish, similar to baker's chocolate or roasted coffee. I can't wait until they release some bottles of this beast of a brew.
Serving type: on-tap

Been sitting on this bottle for a while now, tonight seemed like the right night. Had it fresh and this one held onto since they went farms house on it...enjoyed from that jester king zwanze tulip.
a - brew pours a deep lush black with a nice dark brown cap that eventually dissolves down to a thin skin. Lacing is slippery and doesn't cling much.
s - nose is faded chocolate with some soft roast notes. Not really much to it. Very subdued. Little burnt.
t - comes alive on the first sip. Nice chocolate and roasted coffee. I had remembered this being a roast bomb but this is nice. Roast is still fairly aggressive but the oxidation puts the chocolate in a mellow place that sits right with the roast...and lends to some dark fruit sweetness which is really nice.
m - fairly soft and light. Easy drinker, almost thin even. Abc is invisible.
o - this beer is in a great place right now. Very enjoyable. Drink them if you got them!
