Looks thick coming out of the bottle, pours dark opaque brown with a finely bubbled light brown head. Arms of lacey foam rise up the sides of the glass.
Aroma is strong and far-reaching, chocolately with coffee bitter and plum, some spiciness, a bit of fresh moist bark.
Flavor is sharp and pungent, bitter and smokey, some charred bark followed by cocoa and coffee, a fine hop backbone, and a spicey fennel freshness that sparkles on the tongue. A coffee bitter lingers. The ABV is barely noticeable, wouldn't guess it packs such a wallop if I didn't already know.
Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, moderate to low carbonation. Decent drinkability, but a definite sipper. Great beer. Many thanks to nrrd for the bottle.
