3.5/5 rDev -16.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5
12oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled on 11-14-08.
(A)- Pours thick and black as night. Produced a decent light tan colored head that stayed around for awhile before dissipating down to bubbles.
(S)- Serious roasted malts. So roasted, that its more of a burnt nature. Bits of dense coffee, molasses, raisins, vanilla, and sweet brown sugar.
(T)- Pretty much the same as the smell. Dense & sweet. Not much of that great coffee that was in the smell, but everything else is there. Finishes very sweet & boozy.
(M)- A good carbonation level for the style. The alcohol is very evident & leaves the throat not after each swallow. The sweetness can also be a bit much; it pretty much overpowers the great roasted/burnt malts & creates a one-dimensional beer.
(D)- Again, due to its big sweetness & overall boozy finish, does not lend this beer to being a good drinker. A sipper for sure. I think this definitely needs more aging time in the bottle, or mine was not stored well before my purchase.
