Spring 2006 Release

Poured from bomber into snifter.

A - Pours pitch black. Looks like motor oil. Starts with a small coffee like head, which disappeared quickly into only whisps on the outer edge of the glass.

S - Roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, with a little bit of citrusy hops and maybe licorice.

T - Wow, what a ride here. Tons happening. Have to sip again and again to try to pinpoint it all. Some burnt coffee and licorice up front. Chicory, bittersweet chocolate, marshmallow, rich roasted malts, and maybe a bit of honey. I am probably missing some here. So much going on.

M - Thick and slightly syrupy, but still somehow creamy.

D - This is a sipper. Great beer.
