750mL from Black Star Co-op Pub & Brewery. Poured into JK stemware.

Super dark body and head. Thick head and excellent retention.

Really chocolatey in the aroma. Some anise, dark spice, dark fruits too. Not a hugely powerful aroma, but all the other aspects make up for that.

More cacao than anything else, but dark fruits too. Very roasty, with some leather, and somewhat creamy tasting as well. Not nearly as English-y as the previous (non-farmhouse) Black Metal, but the farmhouse yeast is not nearly as present here as any of their other farmhouse beers.

Great mouthfeel, thick and creamy, but dry finish. Lots of subtlety and spice in the aftertaste. Peppery. Very drinkable.

Excellent vision, excellent execution. They seem to have figured out this farmhouse bottle conditioning thing. I like this better than the first batch of the farmhouse version. These guys are killing it right now.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

this bottle is probably a good two and a half to three years old
A: poured into a snifter to a deep black with a two finger dense tan head that is slow to fade and leaves decent lacing
S: smells of sweet chocolate, coffee, and toasted marshmallows
T: taste is bittersweet chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and kind of peppery and spicy yeast. swallow is more coffee and chocolate with some charred wood. hints of oxidation but not terrible
M: this beer is surprisingly light on the palate due to some pretty prickly carb. the finish is
O: It looks like they didn't use an oxygen fixing cap but the beer is pretty solid. a bit too heavy on the carbonation but the flavors are there. the farmhouse yeast does some interesting things but it doesn't overshadow the rest of the beer.
