A: Thick, velvety, black with a slight purplish hue.

S: Coffee and vinegar. The sour smell is quite strong with this one.

T: First a wave of espresso followed by rich, fresh berries, and then the lactic sourness kicks in. I'm not sure if the souring was intentional but it plays perfectly with the other beautiful flavors in this beer.

M: Velvet with a mildly puckering finish.

O: Wonderful. Having not been blown away by what I had on tap at Sante Adairius, I was preparing to be underwhelmed by this. Apparently the hype is well deserved; this Adjunct Professor is an excellent brew.

Thank you, Reja, for this bottle.

A: Poured pitch black with two fingers of khaki head. Sticky lacing.

S: Where to begin? Roasted malts; light notes of coffee; soft berry/fruit; and faint funk. Very interesting and complex nose.

T: Chocolate, roasted malts and coffee upfront; boysenberry mingles with a soft tartness, mid palate; closes with faint bitterness and smooth dryness.

M: Creamy mouthfeel with, soft carbonation, light/medium body (leans towards the latter).

O: Wonderful beer. Immensely complex. Absolutely delicious.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black with a hint of transparency at the edges. Nice khaki head. Good retention.

Smell - Fruity, dark roast. Some chocolate. I'm not familiar with boysenberry, so I can't specify the fruit aroma. Acidic aroma.

Taste - Much more fruity. Roasty coffee. Dark chocolate. Bright tart fruits, but I still don't know if it's legitimate boysenberry. A bit chalky in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Tart more than sour. Flavorful, medium body, well carbonated.

Overall - Tough call on this one. The flavors all seem to be in perfect balance with each other, but I just don't know if I want some of these flavors together.
