Split a 750 mL bottle on 1/6/09. Batch 008.
The color is reddish brown, not super dark. A moderately sized head forms, maybe a couple cms, an off-white color. The head stays around and leaves decent lacing on the glass. The smell is chocolatey sweet primarily, and after the head subsides a little bit you get a bit more of the alcohol scent. A really nice smell. The taste comes immediately as chocolate and ripe fruits, like raisins and such. There's also a decent alcohol burn and some estery tastes. The alcohol does taste kind of funny, but overall the taste is smooth and rich. A great rush of carbonation comes with each sip, and the beer itself is full-bodied, but the bubbles lend themselves to an odd burn. I could probably drink the whole 750 mL in one night, and that would be it. I enjoyed it, and would love to have more, but can't say that it's at the top of my list to get again.
