750ml bottle into a tulip glass. This beer called for more of a pint glass I realized after pouring it.
Pours chocolate black with a huge frothy tan head. Pillowy as it recedes to a thick ring that clings nicely to the glass. Touch of russet coloring around the edges.
Smells of toffee roasted malts and some caramel as well. Not a strong aroma as one would expect but crisp. A bit of blackstrap sweetness and milk chocolate. Tons of lacing coat the glass.
Taste a touch of licorice with some dark fruit up front, light fruit in the middle with only a touch of bitter. Some caramely and milk chocolate toasty malts. All very well in balance and not overpowering. A pleasure to drink and finished with a ski lodge fireplace warmth, almost sherry like.
Good carbonation up front that fades to complement the balance of fruit and chocolate flavors.
Drinks more like a light strong ale.
A bit pricey so I may move on to sample another next time, but definitely worth a try.
