On tap into a tulip

Enjoyed at Homegrown Brewhouse

A: black with mocha colored head, head has very good retention and leaves a moderate amount of lacing

S: huge black licorice is by far the prominent aroma, subtle dark fruits

T: black licorice, roasted malts, dark fruits. Not terribly complex but very tasty

M/D: full bodied, carbonation on the higher side, ABV very well masked, and drinkability is very good

O: I really enjoyed this one. Not very complex and not very Belgian in my opinion, but very good nonetheless.

Ah the synthetic cork. Not only did it fail to properly preserve this beer as was evidenced by some dark oozing and mold around the top but it was also a total bitch to remove, requiring a rabbit ear corkscrew.
So the beer was nearly dead flat, oxidized, but still retained some flavor and aroma. It was not a drain-pour.
No head to speak of, but a dark BSDA color, not quite stout or porter black.
Aroma was tame, some dried fig, malty, toffee.
Taste was a little too malt syrupy sweet, making the yeast hard to detect. Kind of like an overly sweet Scotch ale. No identifiable hop bitterness.

Thomas Creek has had some adventurous beers that have kind of missed the mark but are still an interesting drink (Up the Creek). They really need to reconsider using the synthetic cork. It works great for wine bottles but they screwed something up here. I will continue to try Tom's beers but will avoid the synthetic cork & cage.

I visited the brewery and tasted their offerings. This one is one of their atypical selection. I sampled a small glass a the brewery and feel in love with it. Upon getting ready to leave a grabbed a growler to go. This beer pours dark, with a good level of carbonization. The taste, and after taste is awesome. There are so many things going in in this one. It is dark and pours with a tan head of about two fingers. Reminiscent of porters and stouts, this one is one a could drink every day during the fall and winter. Goes great with a good cigar on the patio during the evening after a long day at work. This would be my favorite Thomas Creek offering in their atypical series followed closely by the banana split stout. This is available in champaign type bottles in stores. If you run across it, pick one up. You won't be disappointed,
