22oz bomber shared with friends. My serving was in an Innis and Gunn stemmed glass (not quite a tulip, but not a straight walled goblet either). No date on the bottle.
Appearance Clear/bright dark amber. Thin ring of white foam. Some small islands of lacing.
Smell: Toffee, dark fruits, and a hint of phenol. A very deep and rich aroma.
Taste: Toffee, Candi sugar, caramel, cherry, phenol, with a mild bitter finish that complements the other flavors. Very rich.
Mouthfeel: Smooth but sticky on the teeth. Light carbonation.
Overall / Drinkability: The Reverend has given me his sermon and I'm a converted believer. This is a very good beer. Deep flavor and aroma profiles, good looking, and even the mouthfeel works with everything else going on. I'd hesitate to put it in any more of a religious connotation, but I effective went to a service, listened to the sermon, took communion, and left uplifted. This is one damn good beer. The alcohol does make itself a little bit known, but not enough that I found it hot. I had such a good experience I know it's dangerous enough for me to reach for another one and be in real trouble and in for a proper preaching against sin after the 2nd bottle. Great beer and I'll be picking this up again.
