Bottle into snifter. My first ever Brooklyn beer, and it did not dissapoint.
Black. Almost has highlights, creamy mocha head, lots of activity, lacing never quits.
Boozy, molasses, licorice. At first more boozy than anything, but this mellows. Some malty sweetness and bitter chocolate eventually become more pronounced. Has long legs.
Boozy again, at the start, but this fades into complex blend of bitter chocolate, molasses, and roasted malt. Smooth, balanced, rich. Mild lingering bitterness. Far more complex than the nose.
Nicely restrained carbonation, thick creamy coating, full bodied, smooth, with a hint of warming.
This is a creamy, rich delicacy that is hard for me to nurse. This is an exceptional beer.
