Limited Bottling - Winter 08-09
Poured a thick motor oil looking black with a dense thick dark mocha colored head that was very well retained with very good lacing. The best part was the excellent cascade effect.
The beer had a heavy roasted malt aroma with some chocolate which also provided a hint of sweetness. The alcohol was noticeable as the beer warmed up; at times it gave off more of a Scotch aroma than a straight up astringent alcohol aroma.
The taste was very good. Followed the nose really good, well balanced, with some hints of the alcohol, again after the beer warmed. Certainly not as much chocolate as one would expect.
The beer had a heavy body with good carbonation. The beer was thick/chewy, rich and creamy. Overall an excellent beer and one that I will be picking up every winter. Brooklyn brewery is one of the best in the country.
