2.65/5 rDev -36.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5
Package: 12-ounce bottle. Winter 2002-2003 vintage.
Appearance: Looks like black mud as it pours out of the bottle. Thick. Black. Thick tan head. So thick not even Superman can see through this beer.
Smell: Strong alcohol and chocolate aroma. Somewhat bready as well.
Taste: Very bitter and alcohol flavor up front. Tangy almost lemon-like zesty flavor is also present. There is an odd flavor that is present in the middle of the flavor timeline that I do not like but I cant quite identify what it is. I just dont like how it mixes with the other flavors. Chocolate malt flavor is also present. Roasted and burnt espresso aftertaste. Strong hop bitterness also present in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Thick and extremely chewy.
Drinkability: Super strong bitterness and alcohol flavor detracts from the drinkability.
Comments: For me it was not as good as it looked. I enjoyed the chocolate malt and espresso flavors but that odd flavor is just not my thing. Thank you Keith (stegmakk) for the bottle.
Serving type: bottle
