GothGargoyle (1888) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2012
Sample at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Black with a large chocolate brown head that leaves behind a lot of lacing. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, dates, rum. Very creamy mouthfeel, full bodied, warming finish. Taste is chocolate, oak, coffee, vanilla, fig, liquorice. Very nice, has the slightest touch of harshness in the throat as it goes down, this should mellow out with age.
