A - A billowing finger of thick vanilla-hued cream is suspended above a murky chocolaty-brown brew...thick and ominous as a NYC sewer (remember Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?) This looks like the muck that baby alligators slither through as they grow into subterranean monsters beneath the city. Head retention is disappointing, but expected due to the high ABV. Swirling whips up some thick creamy lace that slides back down into the small pillowy head.
S - Chocolate cake, tootsie rolls, prune juice, ripe plums, dates, and raisins. Damn that's complex! I'm smelling something new every time I stick my nose in the glass. Initially the aromas are dark fruit and sweet chocolate, then a citrus and tropical fruit freshness from the wheat really livens things up! Melon and fruity chewing gum (tropical fruit Bubba Yum) notes are there too.
T - Rich dark fruit and dried tropical fruits. Dates, raisins, and prunes make up the dark side of the beer (the Mr Hyde, if you will) and the dried apricots and tropical mango flavors bring out something sunny and entirely new (the nice friendly Dr. Jekyll). Outstanding balance and depth of flavor, with a hearty alcohol kick at the end. Wow.
M - Full bodied with very silky and understated carbonation. Some sugar is left on the palate, but is quickly bitch-slapped by a wall of booze that leaves the mouth slightly dry and warm. The finish goes on for days, with lingering dark fruit again...transitioning from dark-to light- to dark again at the finish.
D - Ridiculously good beer. One of the best for a high ABV and high malt content lover like me (I think my love of scotch has influenced my taste in beer...I like to feel a little heat after the swallow. I make fun of people who drink light, or (even worse) ultralight beer...I often share with them the estimated calorie content of a boozy malt bomb like this one....roughly 300-400 I guessing? No wonder German monks invented doppelbocks to get them through the Lenten fasting periods! It's liquid food!
