2008 vintage - black wax.
Poured into my Stone IRS goblet. A memorable beer for a special occasion . . .
Dark as a starless sky in wintry New England. No cirrus clouds of foam. Just enveloping darkness. None more black.
Aromas waft and swirl around the lip of the glass. Dark chocolate brownie batter stirred vigorously in a bowl. Burnt molasses from the refinery down the road. Dry roasted espresso beans.
Layers and layers of flavor. Deep, dark, roasty Sumatra coffee touched with cream. Port-filled chocolate truffles. Dried fruit cocktail. Heady burn from the alcohol in the finish.
Ah, but the mouthfeel is where this beer really distinguishes itself. It coats the tongue and slides slowly down the throat. Thick, rich, and viscous from start to finish. A beer meant to be sipped and savored.
Take two and save one in the cellar for a special occasion.
