Into the tulip.

A - Slightly hazy dark brown/caramel with small head, sudsy light lacing.

S - Deep malt, bready, heady, bit of dark fruit.

T - Oh yes. Major dark malt presence - dark, cooked fruit, brown sugar and satisfying bitterness to finish almost neutral.

M - Big, heavy, full, coating and just the right amount of carbonation.

D- A sipper. Savor it. Could wear your palate out after a few.

On-tap @ Anam Cara in Brookline, MA.

Wow, what a treat to find this one on-tap! Props to AC.

Served in it's proper Celebrator glass, it was dark-brown colored. The head had great retention all the way through its short lifespan. Nothing too crazy going on with the aroma, just a nice, enjoyable nutty scent. Great nutty, roasted malt flavor as well. Nice and smooth on the palate. Exceptional drinkability. I couldn't believe how fast I was drinking it, but I couldn't stop!

What more can be said about this brew that hasn't been said already? One of the best and deserves its classic status.

Pours a mahogany color. Dark and deep but lets just a little light come through gently. It's got terrific garnet hues to illuminate the beer. On top sit s thick creamy tan head of foam that 's cloud like and loathe to fall. It finally does but leaves wet lace dripping down the glass with each sip.

Nose is intense. First the most authentic scent of blackstrap molasses. With that earthy little sour to it like if you had put your nose int he jar of it. Dark fruits and fresh plum. Behind that a treasure of dark dried fruits like raisin and prune. bit of caramel and a dark and breaddy malt that is toasted perfectly. Toasted bread and you can almost smell the crusts. There's a whiff of alcohol but it is not unwelcome and a light spice. Smells like a pastry made with lots of dark fruits and nuts.

Taste is fat chewy and velvety malt. Toasty and breaddy. Glides over the tongue with all that fruit and the creamy molasses. There's a touch of hops on this and they are bitter but not too much. Endless and smooth. creamy with dark sugars and toasted grains. There's a touch herbal in the drink and the body is round, full and fat. Finishes with a delightfully authentic aftertaste of molasses.

This beer is perfection in every way. it's rich and delicious. Smooth and forthcoming. It drinks sticky and has a complex palate that has just the right amount of sour and bitter to offset it's deep sweetness. The alcohol is warming int he drink and it's easy to see why this one is the best in the world.

A-dark brown with a red tint shining through, when held up to a light. It had a small tan head
S-sweet malt smell with a hint of roast, dark fruit, and bourbon aroma
T-Malt but not sweet, and with a roasted taste that gives you a slight hop aftertaste with the hint of bourbon in the finish.
M-high carbonation, creamy, and medium body
O-nothing is overpowering. It just gives you a well balanced aroma and taste.
