4.47/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

GLASS: Snifter
TEMP: Served at approx 40 degrees, allowed to warm about 10 degrees before drinking
I was lucky enough to try this one at DLD 2010.

Pours a very nice black color with some dark crimson highlights. A creamy, light brown colored head forms on top, then recedes rather quickly, leaving a small surface ring of bubbles. Lacing is very minimal, and slides down the oily sides of the glass.

The nose is filled with very rich notes of roasted malts. It has an almost fudge/brownie like chocolatey-ness to it. Beautiful notes of espresso. Hints of molasses and dark fruits.

The flavor follows the nose. There are nice notes of molasses that come forward. The espresso notes seem to be blended with sweetened condensed milk. The balance of roasty to sweet to almost burnt/bitter plays off of each other component very well.

Beautiful, full body. Mild level of carbonation. Extremely smooth, but sadly lacks any real depth of creaminess. Silky for sure, but could easily be velvet-like with a bit of tweaking.

I'm not sure if the 16.03%abv is correct or not, but if it is then this brew is criminal. It certainly drinks a whole lot easier than that. It does have a certain touch of booziness to it, but I think that the high presence of espresso/coffee flavor gives it a lot of balance, or at least helps mask it well.

Serving type: on-tap
