Lucky to have this one on tap at Zeno's...thanks Dave!

A-Deep, light absorbing black with a ridiculous dark tan head that looked like a living creature. Left heavy lacing throughout. One of the best looking beers I have seen.

S-Some liight chocolate and burnt malt. Not as intense as I would have expected.

T-Chocolate, burnt malts and a slight bourbonesque tatse. Really nice tatse throughout.

M-Smooth and creamy. This has a serious good mouthfeel. So big and rich....ends with an odd alcoholic finish...keeping this from getting a 5.

D-Very nice but a bit too big to have many of. Glad to have had it on tap.

Oskar Blues has finally arrived in Illinois! Been wanting to try this for a looong time. 6 oz. split into a Hunahpu's snifter on October 11th, 2012.

A - As close to a Cigar City stout appearance I've seen. Prefer a 4.75 here. Hugely thick, black, and oily. Thin mocha head with just traces left. Marginal lacing.

S - Surprisingly more dark fruit that I'd have guessed. Raisins, sweet syrup/molasses. Light spices. Definite roast but not massive.

T - Front end shows a heavy espresso bitterness. Mid palate turns to a huge roasted character, with almonds and the like. Back end is more roast, dark chocolate, and that sweet winter, pitted character that I also detected in the aroma.

M - Medium-heavy body. Moderate carbonation, good dry finish.

D - No alcohol harshness anywhere in this one. The fruit elements clearly is what I'll remember about this one. It's akin to Founder RIS and Dark Horse Plead the 5th, only with more sweetness and less roast that I imagined it would have. Good thing I want to revisit, since I bought a 4 pack. ;)
