I am sampling a cellar temp bottle poured into a snifter. Ive been cellaring this beer for about 12 months and Im excited to drink it tonite.
The beer pours a deep cola brown with no light passing through the glass when held up against the lamp.
Very loud fizziness eminates from the glass throughout the pour. A tan fizzy head of 2 cm foams up and fades to a sturdy surface layer quickly, leaving a few wispy islands.
Aroma is deep chocolate malt with some rich molassess and dark fruit. Not any hop presence to speak of and only limited hints of the forthcoming booze.
First sip revels a thick slightly syrupy beer but the smoth texture and minimal gentle carbonation keep this beer a very drinkable one.
Flavor is deep dark fruit, maybe plums, heavy with molassess and brown sugar and a bit of roasted malt and baker's chocolate.
Again there is no hop profile and the booze is amazingly well hidden.
I really enjoy this well crafted big beer. Quite complex and dangerously drinkable! WIsh I had another bottle in the cellar.
