look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottled 8-3-10

Pours brownish black in the glass, audibly fizzy, tan foam that lasts for a couple minutes before fading on the surface.

Malted milk balls, molasses, roasted malt in the aroma, slight oxidation.

Taste is similar, roast chicory and molasses with a slight biting astringency. Long lasting roasty aftertaste. Medium to full bodied, not too sweet but there's a slight tootsie roll taste from the oxidation. Overall it was ok but probably a year or two too old.

Thanks to Julie & Ryan for this one!

Tap into tulip at theresas in wayne pa .
Deep black color with tan head. Huuge coffee and dried fruit aroma with a hint of tobacco notes. Nice bitter coffee and slight cherry flavor. Sweet chocolate and raison finish. Smooth but somewhat thin body for such a robust brew. Overall another great Haand brew.

A: The beer is very dark red when coming out of the bottle and is nearly jet black in appearance in the glass. It poured with a finger high dark tan head that died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles in the center of the glass and a collar around the edge.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark fruits, molasses and toffee are present in the nose. These become stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell, except that the flavors are a little stronger and there are hints of chocolate and roasted malts as well as a slight amount of malty sweetness. No alcohol is perceptible.
M: It feels a bit more than medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation with some notes of warming from the alcohol.
O: This beer has enough complexity in the taste to allow it to be slowly sipped, but the alcohol is remarkably well hidden considering its strength, which also makes this beer very drinkable.
