2013-02-23, bottle from Whole Foods Henderson, NV, 7-4-8-3-15=37
Black color, with medium sized beige head. The aroma of roasted malt is quite mild, with hints of liquorice, and herbal Italian digestive. Good body structure, and good chocolate flavor, with a moderate minty/herbal touch.
2013-01-22, draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 7-4-8-4-16=39
Black color with creamy head, nice lace. Aroma of roasted malts, some wood, some vanilla, some sourness, and a hint of coffee and liquorice. Good body strength, with a good dark chocolate flavor, and a light sour and fruity touch, also some vanilla and very light tobacco; correct bitterness, with some hidden hop qualities; in the final there is a light impression of liquorice.
Very good, fresh, dynamic.
