Bottle pour at mrbubbler's tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and char aromas. Taste is much the same with char, dark fruit, and slight soy sauce flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is fairly drinkable but showing definite age at this point.

This beer sure has grown up since I last had it (early 2011).

Pours black with a solid sheet of tan foam. Smell is pretty fucking acceptable. Dark molasses, prune, brown sugar, oats, chocolate, globs of caramel and nougat. When I dome this beer I know I'm in trouble - it's really tasty. I was scared the belgian yeast would murder the fucking hips out of the foundation, but this beer really just plays along with just a hint of vinous character, but then the rest is sweetened, dark, oral face sex. Medium on full bodied with low carb and a dry finish. I really enjoyed this one. Time did a good thing here.

Original review: 3/3.5/3.5/3.5/4
Thanks to yourefragile for this extra. Cheers!
A: Pours a dark coffee brown with only a sheet of mocha foam which dissipates very quickly. Surface has several whirls of foam left. No lacing to speak of.
S: graham, nougat, malts, black cherries, cola, caramel, hint of molasses. Fine whisps of cocoa. Slight alcohol scent at the back. Overall quite pleasant. Based on smell alone, could use another year in the cellar.
T: Roasty plums, figs, coffee, licorice, black malts. nearly port-like profile. Again, some grahams, sweet molasses. Sweet and alcoholic. Black cherries in here once again too (particularly on the finish).
M: Viscous, low carbonation. Slicks my tongue and makes the roof of the mouth a bit slippery as well.
D: The beer is very nice, wouldn't advise drinking more than one in a sitting. Think the beer could use another year in the cellar before drinking.
