"impressive, most impressive" - darth vader
a good full finger of head (cocoa colored) rises up and clings to the sides of the glass not wanting to let go. no light penetrates this beast, lacing is excellent, the head is made up of a nice pack of microbubbles on the surface/glass edge. the head is sticking around while I type all this BS. hell.. yeah..
dark bitter chocolate mixed with dark bitter coffee (no sugar or cream), I also get some prune/raisin notes, whew.. the odor is BRINGIN' it. not the most complex thing to pass under the schnoz but it is assertive. this reminds me Rogue's imp, and that is impressive.. can vs ceramic bomber.. wow...
the same bitterness in the aroma is there.. really walking the line between coffee and chocolate, the flavor is deep, this has such a nice punch flavor wise that you might miss the body being a bit too light for the style, this drinks wayyy too easy for that reason.. and also the alcohol is completely behind the curtain, the flavor is very rich, I am digging it, despite the body not being what I want it is hard to complain about this beer... man the flavor is deep as rosie o'donnel's .. nevermind...
a really good beer (really), recommended. it wasn't cheap, I would probably still default to Old Rasputin given availability/price but this one is worth seeking out if you like the style. I really enjoyed this beer and almost feel guilty for nit picking it's bad points. The bad points here are almost an afterthought really.
