Had on tap 2/7/13 at Beer Revolution
A: Pours a very dark brown with minimal light brown head. Recedes quickly.
S: Aroma is strong on this one. Yeasty and musty, not in a good way. The sweetness is apparent, mixed with some stale coffee. Chocolate and BA character struggle to make their presence known.
T: Overly sickly sweet, BA quality has faded quite a bit. Dark bitter chocolate notes, fig, and vanilla are also coming in.
M: Medium to full bodied, no carbonation which isn't surprising considering the BA and the age in general on this one.
O: Time was not kind to this beer. I just recently had XXIII on tap and it was wonderful. Aroma on this was off and not pleasant. Taste was overly sickly sweet (in a dark fruit way), that just lingered and over powered the rest of the beer.
Serving type: on-tap
