Old Review
22 oz bottle I got from Five Points Bottle Shop in Athens, GA. Served up in a DFH shaped pint glass.

A: Pours a suprisingly dark, brown. This beer might as well be black. When held to light, the shades of brown come out a bit more. Just a touch of dark red light comes through when exposed to a light source. A whole bunch of carbonation bottles are stuck to the side of the glass, seemingly trapped. Got about a finger of of tan head, but the retention was a bit of a let down. No real lace to talk about. There is a slick film that sticks to the glass though. Good looking brew.

S: At first smell, those 12 hops really come out. A lot of earthy tones are coming out. Earth, dirt, water, and flowery goodness. There is some citrus in there as well. Malts round it out with just a sweet kiss of coffee, chocolate, caramel, and brown sugar smells. Not bad.

T: Taste really showcases the malt. This brew is sweet. Lots of bitter coffee. Chocolate is not as dark as I imagined but still tasty. Caramel is there in full force. Then a bit of the hops come in with an earthy kiss. Citrus, flowery, and herbal flavors come out. Then when you think it is done, the malt attacks again. Heavily roasted malt comes out with what tastes of smoke and wood. Then there is some butterscotch and then what tastes like the sticky goodness of the filling of a pecan pie. This beer is crazy but so good.

M: Full bodied brew that really coats the mouth. Carbonaton is somewhat high, but works incredibly well. ABV actually isn't that bad considering it sits at 12%. Aftertaste is so varied and lingering it is amazing. It really is the beauty of the beer.

D: For such a big, complex beer, this is damn easy to drink. Don't be fooled, this beer is complex. COMPLEX. There is so much going on in here and it is amazing that they actually got it to work. Much respect to the brewer for this achievement because it truly is that. Damn good beer.

If this really is suppose to be a brown ale or Strong ale its the darkest, blackest one ever...inky black in the glass and quite thickly on the pour. A nice dallop of tanned foam sits about a finger high in a firm stand before fading to a light skimming and collar. A few specks and thin threads of lace glaze the glass.

Aroma is clean and malty with a dark fruity tang of prune, date, and raisin with a rounded in chocolateyness. Quite Baltic Porter-esk.

Taste is heavenly thick, lush, and creamy with a certain chocolate fluff and silky cakeish filled tone that has all sorts of dark malty fruity things emerging in each wonderful sip of yummyness. A Baltic Porter would be proud to call this its twin brother as a Strong/Brown Ale. Tamed, but forward and lofty dark fruity tang of date and raisin is drenched in a lovely dark chocolate goo with slices of vanilla pods adding some slight twinge in the finish as it calmly bitters off into more chocolatey warmth. In a word I just made up, fuckingyum!

The mouthfeel is quite full, thick, lush, creamy, and bold with a nice touch of fluff in the middle and finish, like that of a cream filled truffle, cake, or cookie. The finish has a wonderful touch of dark chocolate bittering and feathery dryness as warmth creeps up way late like a really good port. Watch out for that 12%, its there in a simple touch within its yummyness.

Happy 12th Shmaltz! This stuff rocks!
