'95 vinatge..oh boy..
pores about as dark brown as you'll ever get. no head, no lacing. looks like used castrol gtx.
veeery strong alcohol smell to it. almost like nail polish. but what i find intriguing is behind that is a smore(?) like aroma. marshmellow and dark chocolate like it was roasted in a camp fire. if it wasn't for such a strong alcohol smell, this would be so much better.
not feeling the flavor of this one. the initial taste is one of the harshest things i've ever tasted. there is so much soy sauce flavor it just kills all other flavors until the aftertaste. the aftertaste is actually what makes it decent. just like i said with the smell, it has marshmellow and dark chocolate that are blended with coffee
i honestly cannot even describe the mouthfeel. it's impossible to swoosh this around in my mouth. it's so harsh it's ridiculous.
i don't know if i had a bad batch, a misstreated bottle or anything, but this beer has so much potential it makes me sad. maybe if it didn't try to go to the extreme it would have a different outcome.

Shared this with BPK59 at his birthday party. A fun tick. This was 1995 vintage. Of course Ben broke the cork off and in to the bottle...hah!
A - Poured in to a small snifter a motor oil thick dark dark brown nearly black hue with some really incredible legs.
S - Aromas of sweeter malts, salty brine, soy sauce.
T - Taste is even worse than the nose. Loads of sticky sweet malts, salty sweet soy sauce. Ugh
M - Mouthfeel is heavy and syrupy
O - Overall this was a soy bomb. I guess this beer truly is russian roulette, as some bottles are incredible and others are just plain drain pour. Still, glad I got to try it!
