3.85/5 rDev -1.8%
A: Pours a deep black color with good looking viscosity. Creamy tan head forms quickly and rises up to about 2 fingers. Light lacing after each sip.
S: Deep and earthy smell. Lots of roasted malt, charred wood, wet earth, dark chocolate and just a touch of dark fruit. Definitely liking the way this smells.
T: Just a ton of roasted malt goodness in here. There are hints of dark coffee and tobacco and maybe just a trace of toffee, but this is mostly just heavily roasted malt. As it warms, the backend starts to feel a touch watery and I get a day old coffee flavor. A pretty tasty beer overall though.

Got this in an extra as a trade.
First sniff, uh oh. Sourness.
First sip, yep infected. Total sourness, incredibly bitter. Like sour milk. Took one more sip and down the drain it went. Was pretty excited to try a fairly high rated RIS but this was one of 3 beers I've had to dump.

Poured into a New Belgium goblet. There's a row of numbers but no notches.
A- Pours an impenetrably black color with a 1/2 inch dark tan head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a bubbly side patch of surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a thick ring behind.
S- Complex aroma of chocolate, vanilla, molasses, a bit of char and caramel. There's also a booze fume that brings a slightly solvent twist to everything.
T- Heavy roast sets in but it doesn't follow through all the way. There's a strange watery flavor that mutes out the chocolate and char notes which would otherwise be enjoyable. Instead, it's like I'm drinking an imperial porter with a higher than usual roastiness. This is reflected in the mouthfeel. I will say the alcohol is hidden quite well, I just don't really like the flavors that accompany it. As the beer warms, the char intensifies as does this off-putting flavor that's tough to identify. It also becomes more boozy as it warms.
M- Thin and slightly syrupy with medium carbonation and a body that surprisingly leans toward the lighter side.
O- Wow, big split on this one as I like the aroma a lot but the weak mouthfeel and strange flavor make me not want to ever revisit it. Maybe if I had it on draft? Had high hopes for this one but it was a letdown.

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a nonic pint, the beer is jet black, with mahogany highlights, and a halo of white head. Nose of bourbon, molasses, smoke, bittersweet chocolate, and old-world fruit highlights of plum and date. Flavors of roast and bittersweet chocolate forward, with rich molasses and fig in the backbone, hints of smoke highlights, and a bittersweet coffee and chocolate linger. Smooth, robust, but still crisp and dry in the finish, with a roasted, rich, and bitter aftertaste, and a fruit and chocolate linger. Fantastic!
