Winter 11/12 bottling.
Pours very, very black with a finger of tan head. On the nose,
licorice, cocoa powder and an illusion of sweetness that is absent from the palate altogether. Tantalizing.
Taste wise, a rush of astringent roasted malt. Bitter chocolate first and foremost, licorice, coffee, the slightest hints dark stonefruit, vegemite and pepper. Gosh. Full-on, and delicious. 10% alcohol and not afraid to show it. Pretty big hop bite on it at this age too. A monster.
Softly carbonated and medium bodied. A beer deserving of an epic meal or special occasion... that said, I'm drinking it alongside a tin of baked beans while watching Eastbound & Down in my underwear. Still works. I will buy a whole bunch more of this and see what some age does to a couple of them, if I can resist. Magic.
