Poured from a bottle into a dimpled mug.
A – Pours a clear very dark brown, with a nice fluffy two-finger head with great retention. Outstanding lacing.
S – Powerful aroma of roasted grain, bourbon, maple, peat moss, and molasses.
T – Taste follows the nose, with more roasted grain, and hints of black coffee, and bitter chocolate. Sweetness hinted at in the nose present as a balancing effect in the form of caramel and burnt marshmellow, but only faintly at first becoming more robust as it warms. Bitter piney hops present in the underbody from front-to-back. Nice balance overall. Tasty.
M – Thin, but also has a nice creamy quality. Medium to high carbonation. Finishes bone dry. The mouth feel works well with the style.
O – I found the whole package of this beer to be exceptional. Make no mistake – this is one dry and bitter beer! One of the finest “roasted grain” forward beers I have had, and surely one of the best balanced. I’ll be buying this again and again.
