Expensive as hell here in Canada, but I'm a sucker for this brewer so...
Pours a dark brown, damned near black with an impressive tan head, decent lacing.
I can actually pick out some of the cinnamon spice in the Liberty hop along with the toasted malt and dark chocolate.
Lot's of chocolate and coffee in the flavour as well, considering I like both I see this as a good thing. Bit on the boozy side, I seemed to really notice the ABV here and felt it took away rather than added to the overall experience. Finishes dry and slightly chalky with an interesting spiciness.
Considering the bite from the ABV, the mouthfeel is smooth and medium in body.
Price makes it too much of a $$$ in the wallet to try again here in the Great White North, but if I'm in the lower 48 would seek it out again. Some really good flavour blending here.
