Nose is heavy on the roasted malt. Some dark chocolate, lots of coffee, and a slight ash and char quality. A bit of dark fruit in the background. The flavor is heavy on the roasted malt. A decent coffee note, dark chocolate, and a slight acidity. A fair amount of char, some dark fruit, and a light licorice note.

On tap at the pub – half pint

Out of retirment...

A: Black coffee look in the frosty glass. Has some burnt brown tones to it but still completely impervious to any light. Thin layer of turbinado sugar on top that settles out rapidly to a small swirl. Light dots of lace are left behind.

S: Aromas bring forth some intense roasted barley notes with lightly toasted coffee bean. There are soft undercurrents of sweetened cocoa accompanied with a mild whiff of alcohol. Smells nice and roasty.

T: Significant roasted barley flavors of charcoal and coffee. It is very roasty and a touch harsh or burnt in that way. There is some nice semi sweet chocolate and brown sugar layered in to balance all the roast with a mild hop bitterness there. Stale pines and some earthy minerals. Alcohol is kept in nice order with only some minor heat sensed. Finish is a bit metallic to me. It’s a solid RIS but far from being special.

M: The body is medium full and slightly on the heavy side with more of a slick feeling overall. Not syrupy. There is a touch of drying in the finish and some mild alcohol heat. Nice smooth and slick feel.

D: A nice RIS with some intense roast barley action but falls short of being something great. Could use a little less roast and some further dimensions of dark fruits and chocolate. Need to revisit. Bottles would be nice.
