Thanks to Chonyr for this one.
Poured very dark. Wish i had better lighting, as it was near impossible to see through it. I think there was a reddish hue to it, but was hard to tell in the low lighting. It was covered in a nice tan head that melted into this tan lacings.
Very pleasant smells of roasted malts. Coffee, chocolate, and dates come through with just a hint of hop bitterness.
Molasses, dark roasted coffee and dark chocolate and dates. The mild grassy hop bitterness adds to the bitterness of the roasted malts. Caramel flavours gradually and subtly becaoe more apparent adding to the flavours above as the beer was drank.
This is a substantial and decadent brew with a buttery/creamy rich feel. Its not overly carbonated, but it just enough to lighten this decadent treat.
This was a tasty treat and im looking forward to treating myself to another again. Had a cool summer's night to enjoy this one, and could see having a few of these to fortify myself against the harshness of winter, although its probably too rich to be a session beer.
