Pours out to an apparently clear near black with walnut highlights, forming a espresso crema head of medium tan with superior retention and lacing. Carbonation is a little on the softer side, ~2.0 carbs or so. The nose is of soy sauce, black walnut, dark molasses, chocolate syrup and fruity hops. The mouthfeel is syrupy, uber-dense, rich and oily. The taste is a recap of the aroma, however there is a pronounced woody note and more roast character than I picked up in the nose. The roast character is akin to that expected in a RIS, and it adds a moderate tartness to the mouthfeel (too much roasted malt and the tartness subtracts from the mouthfeel and drinkability for me). Brown sugar, pumpernickel crust, prune juice, dates and figs linger on the palette into the long aftertaste. Bitterness is moderate, enough to balance the huge malt bill nicely. The alcohol adds a peppery flourish to the finish, but is otherwise well hidden. Interesting cardamom note is barely perceptible. Very very subtle cardboard note but not enough to interfere or detract.
This is from the new Clifton park brewery and I'm happy to say, tastes just as good as all their other jewbelation beers. This beer is super-sturated and rich, demanding to be sipped over an hour. 1/2 bottle later and I'm feeling it. Yummy stuff.

Dark, sweet, syrupy. This is some strong medicine. Splashed out 1/3 each for son-in-law, his dad and meself on Father's Day. Really packs a wallop. Very little head, but so many complex flavaz in there, smoky and lots of spice and fruit. Mouthfeel is great, like Robitussin with exactly the same effect.
