This is #3 of the Texas Ice Storm '11 Beers (20 degrees and dropping...)
A- Pours black and black upon more black. A full finger of head develops from my aggressive pour. This slowly distills itself into a condensed layer of foam across the top, like swamp water. The lacing is there, in lines sheets and webs.
S- Ah, such an inviting beer. Aromas of chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, dark cherries, cherry cordial, cream chocolate, light espresso grounds, dutch cocoa.
T- Ah, such a delicious beer.The taste is less sweet than the aroma leads me to, more minerals and roast to go along with the chocolate. But still a lot of the same- chocolate, vanilla, espresso (here fading into more intense turkish coffee).
M- Somehow, sweet and dry and at the same time. I guess it's sort of sweet in the front of my mouth and dry by the time the roast and hops hit the back. Not a lot of syrupy, which is ok, but I think I'd prefer some more just so the beer shows off it's power. Certainly the alcohol is well hidden.
D- This is not my first BCS and it will absolutely not be my last. A delicious beer in all respects.
