look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a snifter. Bottled on September 12th, 2013. (2013-2014 release)
Appearance: Pours thick and as close to black as a beer can get. No light is getting through this one. Very thin tan head. Not the best lacing in the world. 3.75
Smell: Mocha latte. Sweet molasses. Chocolate. Subtle notes of sweet fruit.
Taste: Smooth chocolate up front. A bitterness of toasted, almost burnt grains kicks in. Notes of coffee develop very well in the finish. Minor notes of dark fruit, almost like a Fig Newton, kick in. For the most part the alcohol is pretty well masked, however, it does break through pretty well in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Full-bodied, no surprises there. The carbonation is low, but high enough to carry the bitter notes.
Overall: The chocolate flavor is phenomenal, though I am not wild about some of the supporting flavors though. The mocha flavors are spot on but the bitterness is really cranked up in this one. Almost sour notes of burnt toast develop. The alcohol is also to pronounced in the finish, but I suppose that's to be expected given it is a 20 proof beer. I really think this will develop well with a year or two on it.
Serving type: bottle
