I got pretty excited when I saw this beer hooked up at the Bowery Whole Foods beer room. It pours very dark and black...like 99% black. It has a great, thick, frothy, tan colored head with amazing retention. The head leaves lace the whole way down while keeping a thin layer protecting the beer. It has strong smells of burnt coffee and chocolate roasts, very nutty (hazelnuts especially), definitely some alcohol and maybe even dark berries (or cherries). The tastes are very similar...chocolate, coffee, even a little doughy. The mouthfeel of this beer is hands down the best aspect...its so silky and smooth; unlike any other beer I have had (or at least up there with some of the silkiest). It goes down great and the drinkability is top-notch. Well done Ommegang.
Serving type: on-tap
