look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Aged about a year. 12oz stamped CANNED ON 12-02-10. Poured into Duvel tulip.
Appearance - Jet black body. After a half-vigorous pour, makes a two finger dark brown head. Top head doesn't leave much stick, but when tiliting the glass, it's pretty good. Decent retention.
Smell - Dark roasted coffee. Some hop bitterness. Olives, but not in the pungent, offensive way that the character sometimes expresses. Definite rubbing alcohol as the beer warms. Some chocolate. Almost candy fruity like Starburst or fruit roll ups. Gets very complex and suprising as it warms. Definitely one of the most complex smellers I've come across.
Taste - Strong alcohol that's quickly balanced out by a creamy chocolate with mild hoppy bitterness. Boozy. Dark fruit when agitated.
Mouthfeel - Coats the tongue. Just enough astringent solvency to help keep it from sticking around uncomfortably.
Overall Drinkability - Strong, balanced, complex and enjoyable. Slow drink. I feel a buzz coming on after only a few sips.
Serving type: can
