Vintage 2010-2011 poured into Bruery tulip
Pour: Poured the color of dark, dark chocolate not allowing any light penetration at all with a scant half finger khaki color head. The head dissipated into nothing but a small ring. This beer appears so still and silent. Even swirling and agitating it really does not create any head.
Smell: Roasted malts, bittersweet chocolate, slight coffee, and some alcohol.
Taste: An over abundance of bittersweet chocolate malts dominate with a bit of char. Fairly sweet for a RIS and interestingly a bitter snap at the back end of the swallow. The bitterness actually does linger after the swallow a little. Alcohol is hidden very well.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. I think I'd want this by the appearance and taste to be more chewy but that's not what you get here. It does work ok but actually I find myself drinking it a little too quickly due to the thin feel.
Overall: A nice RIS with a good balance of roast but the chocolate taste balances this out well making it seem somewhat sweet too.
Serving type: bottle
