A: Very low head, but otherwise a nice deep copper. Slightly murky, and nice sediment.
S: Brown sugar, butter, chocolate, smokiness.
M: Thin, grainy, and rough. Low carbonation, and a chocolate soda like fizz. Unfortunately not as smooth as the guy's plum colored suit, and the beer's major fault.
T: Chocolate, caramel, burnt toffee, tobacco, roasted malts, roasted hazelnut. NO bitterness. Residual sweetness. Or are these big flavor at fault?
O: Confusing beer. Great flavor profile with potential to carry complimentary bittering herbals with its thinner texture, but is wasted by being too dry, making the chocolate seem powdery. Granted this beer was stamped 12/13, and if I see a fresher bottle I would like to re-evaluate for hop character, and hope for:
1) A nice hoppiness; or,
2) A smoother mouthfeel.
Serving type: bottle
