Enjoyed on tap at Beachwood BBQ for the release event!
Appearance: Pours a deep and dark black with decent brown head that fades away slowly. Almost no lacing.
Smell: Probably the most interesting aspect of this beer. Overwhelming, complex nose on this. I pick up tons of coffee, chocolate, caramel, some char, and eventually the smell of the cardamom spices and dark fruits. Fantastic aroma!
Taste: Loads of bitter coffee dominate the palate followed by some chocolatey fudginess, vanilla, and finishes with slight woodiness. Was really hoping for more brandy, molasses, and cardamom with this one but it definitely doesn't disappoint.
Mouthfeel: Almost perfect, thick, creamy, and full. Little carbonation.
Overall: For what this beer is, it is very, very good. Was hoping for a little less coffee but we will see what some time does for this one.
