Darkmagus82 (2008) - - MAR 28, 2015
Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a dark brick color with a one finger head of white foam. The head has a decent level of retention, fading to leave a lighter level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is strongest of a bready and grainy smell mixed with a good showing of a boozy aroma. Along with these smells comes some lighter notes of a sweeter nature with some caramel and dark fruit aromas mixed within. With a little bit of a woody and earthy hop there as well, the aroma is overall quite warming. Taste – The taste begins with a bready and somewhat sweeter taste of cherry, plum and caramel. While lighter upfront, the boozy and woody tastes grow stronger as the taste advances with the boozy being initially of a more vodka like nature, but later taking a more whisky like flavor in the end. With even more sweetness developing in the taste along with a little bit of a grassy and grainy taste coming at the very end, one is left with a rather boozy (for a 7.5 % beer that is) and moderately sweeter taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and chewier side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. For the big boozy and somewhat sweeter flavors of the brew the thick body made for a sorta cough syrup (in a good way) feel for the brew, which heavily coated the tongue in all the rich and warming flavors. Overall – Much boozier and sweet then I was expecting, but not offensive. A rather nice warmer of a brew.

On tap at Many Glacier Hotel. Good, but not as good as the IPA last night from the same brewery. This has more roast and rye to it, maintaining some of the bitterness throughout.
