A: Darken than I was expecting for some reason. Body is a dark chestnut color with amber highlights. Carbonation seemed thin at first but boy was I wrong…after I poured the bottle began blowing bubbles out the top of it, like you would with a straw and milk as a kid. The head nestled down to a tight mass of roasted marshmallow colored bubbles.

S: And I wasn’t ready for that aroma either! First thing that jumps out is the variety of hops in the highs of the nasal passage. The alcohol is carried way up the sinuses by a guttural butterscotch. In the low levels, a playful blend of Rolos, Milkyway and Tootsie roll battle it out. Somehow all these smells come together and form a delightful scent.

T: Initial taste and mouthfeel makes me think of chocolate malts. But the piney hops don’t let this analysis last long….they mix with the alcohol forming a satisfying oily counterpart to the chocolate malts. After the swallow, quality roasted grains quickly spike then get smacked down by the hops that have boldly come to the forefront again. The chocolate is strong in this beer, but not in the traditional “flavored chocolate” you find in many beers now adays. This type is of the likes of dried cocoa, bitter baking and molasses. Finishes with a good amount of bitterness but not enough to be over bearing. Aftertaste is more of those hops and alcohol. Finishes with strong toffee and caramel

M: Full bodied and creamy like a protein shake

D: I thought this beer was pretty good. Different enough to separate itself from the pack without resorting to gimmicks that make it unappealing. And as it warms, it gets even better. Not bad at all.

Pours like a stout. Damn near black. Really a good looking brew that has a nice dark tan head on it that sits well. The smell is good, lots of malts in this. nice hop aroma with some alcohol. Taste is really good. Raosted malts, hops, alcohol, all there a nd a good amount of each. Really a solid brew to sip on.

A - Pours a very dark brown body that almost looks black if not held up to the light. Generous head is cocoa/oatmeal colored, made up of mostly tight bubbles and shows no sign of going anywhere. Nice looking brew!

S - Anise mixed with some dark fruits. Raisins and plums. Lightly roasted dark malt. Slight nuttiness. Some toffee and caramel.

T - Rich and flavorful. Brown sugar mixes with toffee up front to bring on some sweetness. Baker's chocolate dances lightly across the tongue. A mild bitterness comes in, giving way to some light fruitiness of plum. Roasty malt qualities with some light expresso. Bitterness returns at the finish, but this time it is stronger and lasts through to the aftertaste.

M - Medium full bodied with fine carbonation that tickles it's way across the tongue and down the throat.

D - Very nice brew here with quite a bit going on. Gets more complex as it warms. I would like to try this one with about 6-12 months on it.
