From 32GP. In Teku glass. Watching Los Soprano 1x07. Very balanced and with the alcohol well hidden. Just the adequate amount of roastyness and more chocolate as it warms up.

Lovely, well made. As good as most IRS.

A: A black beauty. Makes me sleepy thinking bout it, not much lacing.

S: Roasty aroama, black bread, chocolate, mint and pine forest.

T: The roast malt with moist, fruity, black raisin bread with chocolate provide the backbone. This is tempered by the minty, pine forest hops that combine to take this to a great sipping finish.

F: Full bodied with moderate carbonation, sporting a clean, minty, long finish.

O: A must try. Brooklyn gets crafty, a great place to live.

Pitch black with a thin espresso head. Smells like dark chocolate, smoke, roasted malts, cherries. The taste notes include dark chocolate, espresso, roasted malts, cherries, smoke, subtle hints of peated whiskey.

Poured 12 Oz into a tulip glass.
Look: Poured a thick black with a small, thin copper head.
Smell: Overtones of sweet chocolate, dark malts, and a slightly fruity undertone.
Taste. Sweet, smooth, complex, and dark. Tastes of chocolate, roasted coffee, bitter malt, and alcohol.
Feel: Lightly carbonated. Not very dry, quite smooth and refreshing. Easy to drink, but very heavy on the alcohol. Makes you feel warm and fuzzy and loose inside.
