A: A slow pour into a standard pint glass resulted in about a one-finger, dark mocha colored head. Overtime the head dissipated to a collar and left a pretty good lacing. The beer poured very syrupy, and it was a deep rich mahogany and absolutely opaque.
S: The aroma was dark unsweetened chocolate, honey, toasted barley, prunes and currants, and just a bit of sweet malt, too. It was a very complex aroma.
T: The taste began with a dark roasted malt and honey sweetness and then a mild earthy and peaty bitterness joined in that was just enough to provide a little balance and take the edge off the sweetness. Underneath these main flavors there were also hints of prunes, currants, toasted barley, and unsweetened chocolate.
M: The body was heavy, smooth and full. And, there was only a small amount of carbonation.
O: This was a winner. There was plenty of hype around this beer. For me, it really measured up. This one really hits the “wow” category. For fans of sweeter beers this one goes way beyond a “must try.” What really makes this beer different is how the gesho’s mild earthy and peat-like bitterness fit very well with the sweet malt and honey. The gesho does only enough to keep the sweetness from going over the top, but still allows all of the flavors come through bright and clear.
