3.93/5 rDev -5.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Appearance is a deep dark brown with a finger of tan head that enjoyed some good retention and left nice thick lace behind. Roasted malts abound in both the nose and the flavor profile. The finish is a touch too astringent and puts a damper on an otherwise exceptional offering. There is a slight alcohol presence, but considering the ABV, it is very mild and unobtrusive.
Serving type: on-tap

12oz 2011 vintage into a snifter.
dark, thick black pour with a slight beige head. smell is actually quite subdued..slight sweetness perhaps. the taste starts out a tad sweet...and is incredibly smooth. this is almost like a cross between a stout and barleywine. ABV not really apparent either. but you feel it quick. very malty on the finish. dark fruits...big big beer. full bodied. mild carbonation.
overall an interesting and very tasty hybrid beer.

Had to try this one out. At $8.75 a bottle I figure it must be good right? Ok, I've been burned using that logic before, but as a spoiler alert, this one was spot on. I've now reached my benchmark for stouts. Holyfuckingmotherofgod, this beer rocks! First of all, I poured this one into one of my Chimay goblets and the first thing I noticed is how this looks like the hell-spawn of motor oil and expresso with a rich, light brown head. So far, so good. Next is the deep aroma of, what? Deep, dark decadence? Don't care, I've got to taste this... I get hit with an overpowering mixture of flavors that my humble palate is incapable of describing, followed by the fumes of alcohol that run rampant through this brew. I have to finish this review so that I can savor what's left. Drink this. God commands it. Cheers!
