A 355ml bottle with a BB of Oct 2013. Picked up from an off-licence in Ripon. Brewed in the winter of 2010/11, so it's been maturing for a while; mmm....
Poured into a Delirium chalice. A deep jet black hue, though revealed as a dark brown when held to the light. Produces a decent head of creamy brown foam that remains for a few minutes before subsiding to a frothy surface layer. Aroma of rich, sweet malt with notes of dried fruit, molasses, chocolate, roasted malt, burnt grain and coffee. A warming whiff of booze in the background. Intense and delicious.
Tastes of rich roasted malt with a fruity character and a dry, bitter finish. Notes of dried fruit, chocolate, molasses, burnt grain and coffee. Slightly sweet, and possesses a spicy, astringent quality. Quite bitter upon swallowing, with a warm alcoholic note. Mouthfeel is velvety smooth, with tingly carbonation and great body. Very dry, with considerable astringency that dries the palate. Aftertaste of bitter roasted malt and booze.
Wow - one of Brooklyn's classics. A fantastic brew with tons of flavour and character. Rich, sweet, fruity malt with distinct chocolate and coffee notes. I think what impresses me most is that this beer doesn't actually contain any chocolate; the flavour is the result of superb malt selection. I love the smooth mouthfeel. Excellent - add this to your list of must-try beers!
