Bottle, Consumed on the night before dark lord day.
My Palate was clear, but I'd been cooking so....
A: black, average RIS look. Nothing Suprising here. Dark foam stuck around in my snifter a bit before disapearing.
S: Good, Malty, Coffee, Smelling this beer was the highlight for me, the anticipation was quite high for a brew of this reputation
T: Coffee, Chocolate, Nothing....This was a great beer, well crafted but when something is rated #20 I expected more.
The Beer has a coffee essence that when combined with the very bitter dark chocolate has a bittering effect that keeps the malts in check. It's not too bitter, it's not too sweet, it just is. and that is was good for a 4.0
M: the carb was high than some less than many other styles.
D: I enjoyed my glass but I was ready to move on after having it. I could have had more, it wasn't too boozy, or to heavy, it was right about a 4.0 I'll drink my other bottle with friends at some point; gladly.
