asheft (2441) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2008
[on tap at EBF 2008] Vanilla and sherry oak barrel aroma with lots of toast and some butterscotch. Viscous black and opaque with tan whisps. Vinous flavour that has a much better balance than the other "Black as": Very toasty with vanilla and burnt flavour. A bit dry and sherry-like but balanced with the toasty malt. A touch salty. Full body, moderate carbonation, sweet finish, but not overly.

Tap @ EBF, 2008, Carlsberg.
Pours fat, oily, muddy black with a small, brown, film head. Vinious aroma, caramel, roasted, berries and sherry. Low carbonation, super creamy mouthfeel. Impressive flavour as well, roasted, coffee, chocolate and a really super dryness. Oak and sherry peeps through in the strong finish. Very nice and balanced.
