Bottled 3/10/14 - consumed 6/12/14

A - Pitch black, tan head, good lacing.

S - Toasty caramel and chocolate. Touch of roast.

T/M - Roasted barley, soy sauce, light tones of dark fruit and caramel. Lingering bitter/soy sauce finish.

O - An OK beer. I found the finish distracting from any desirable flavors.

Old Heathen one of my first and favorites RIS. Surpassed by a few since then.
This one resolves into more of a whiskey finish, lots of oak and char. Cannot say it's an improvement or a detriment. It's good. Well crafted.

A: Pitch, good lacing and head.
S: Bread, tar, whiskey, char, wet hay.
T: Follows the smell. More char, more whiskey. Not overwhelming, good meditation beer.
MF: Medium to full bodied, strong finish.

Must try.
