11/14/11 DOB, poured into a pint glass.
Opaque black, with just a hint of red to it. Bubbly, one and a half finger of light tan head quickly reduces to a thin covering. A bit of webby lacing.
Nice, but subdued raosty smell. A hint of bitter chocolate, and maybe even the faintest bit of a dark fruit to it. Definitely not to the degree of a Belgian, though. Still, interesting. The chocolate comes out even more as it warms up.
The taste is robust. A balanced bit of hop bitterness is definitely there, while the dark malt leaves an amazing roasty, bourbon-esque flavor in your mouth long after you swallow. The mouthfeel is chewy and only ever so slightly carbonated. I don't know how they pulled this off while keeping it at 6% ABV. I'm impressed. A good sipper.
