Okay, I have to start by saying that this is the second time that I've had this beer. The first was about a year ago when I wasn't nearly the beer drinker than I am now. I feel that I wasted that bottle... my pallet wasn't refined enough to really know what the hell I was drinking. I appologize to all...
Anyway...now to the beer...
Pours out like hot tar, except it's cold. Very very very black and beautiful. Tan head...a little lighter than I would have thought. There is that roasted barley scent that's just amazing. It really smells like you are sticking your head in a bag of roasted malt.
The first thing that you notice when you sip this beer is the amazingly thickness of it. It's crazy. It's amazing. It's great. There's a little sweetness, but a strong alcohol flavor in the middle of the swig. It reminds me of wiskey in the way it floods your nose. It's not a bad thing. Reminds me of a red wine.
I scored this beer low in drinkability because of the absurd ammount of alcohol in it. You just can't drink many of them. I got this bottle for a steal . $8 at Whole foods in NYC. Excellent. Anyway.. this is an amazing beer that I love and I love drinking it at home. It's not something that you should be downing at a bar.
