Poured from the large quart (32oz) flip top bottle: served in a 20oz mug - Pours massively dark marooned brown settling like blood under moonlight black with a slim slivered highlight of dark amber at the bottom. Solid medium sized foamy cap of light sandy brown which towers up with might from a slow pour to creep down to a light skimming. Creates thick cob webby lacing and some spots all over the mug while it settles and is consumed.
Aroma is very well set in a malt laden sweetness with deep figgy, pruney rummyness lathered in a chocolate coating and dashed with a partial roastyness.
Taste grabs with the malt and doesn't let go as it starts deeply tangy with the dark fruity sweetness of figs and prunes, nearly soured, but far more in check and toned down to perfectly dispurse it across the entire palate with a soothing, soft, tangy ease of comfortable silky warming. Creamy dark chocolate laced middle and soft dark cherry and smokey bacon tanged finish.
Big bodied malt covered smoothness and lathery creamyness. Quite a decadent dark malt creation of creamy smooth and soft malt thats semi tangy and very, very ease to let slip down the gullet. The touch of dark chocolate in the middle is superb!
YUM! I'm seeing Double already as this stuff is quite the Vision of Doppelbock goodness. Being at 8% and a full quart this will wiggle your knees when you try to get up after drinking the whole thing. Damn, if ain't worth it! A fantastic brew by the folks at Grand Teton!
