Haven't had this one in a couple years, so it's high time for a another run at her!

A- Dark as the other side of the moon, and just as mysterious. Old motor oil comes to mind, industrial blackness. There is no head to save you now. You are at the mercy of Brooklyn...DRINK.

S- Woah, the first thing I smell, has a touch of booze to it. Deep, dark chocolates and roasted coffee notes singe the nose. Other notes waft around...bourbon?! It can't be, there shouldn't be. Dark, dark cerry-esque smells in the back? There is some sort of fruit present, call me crazy.

T- Yup, just as I remember it...dessert in a glass. There is a velvetiness to the chocolate taste that while not masking, actually evens out the dark-bitterness very well! That velvetiness continues on the second sip, and the beer is still quite chilled. I wonder when it warms a bit...eek! Roasted coffee, dark nuts and fruits come to mind with this beast.

M- Umm, if you've been reading you know I'm sensing a "velvety" character in this beer. Mouth-coating and all-encompassing.

D- A sipper by the book. Let this one warm slowly, more characters find their way into it's story and twist the plot so fiendishly. She's 10%...be aware.

Mr. Oliver, well done sir.
