look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

750ml corked and caged bottle (2013 release) poured into an Idle Hands tulip.

A - Pours a near black in the glass with a dense, coffee ice cream colored, almost Guinness draught-like head of three fingers that shows excellent staying power. Foamy and thick, the head takes several minutes to fall to the surface and leaves behind foamy webs of lacing that nearly cover the entire surface of the glass.

S - Slightly astringent, noticeable berry-like fruitiness, slightly metallic, lightly alcoholic, roasted malts, a bit earthy, nice coffee bitterness/roastiness. A little bit odd in a way that I can't quite identify - I think the metallic notes and prominent berry aromas are the cause however.

T - Similar to the aroma...noticeable astringency that seems a bit off - maybe early sign of infection, but not sure. Metallic, berry flavors, burnt/acidic/astringent malts, black coffee. A bit smoky and leathery.

M - Medium body with a finely bubbled medium carbonation. Strong berry flavors and acidic/astringent notes are a bit overpowering and block out some of the roasty nuance.

O - This one isn't really working for me that well. I had high hopes and expectations for this one and really wanted to like this more. Coffee is muddled behind some burnt malt notes and a huge berry character. Acidity and a metallic quality also don't do this any favors. All of these things are fighting against each other and don't allow anything to shine thru. A bit of a disappointment.
