Opaque black beer, good grey - tan head. Smooth palate, softish and semi dry. Smooth dark malt. Bitterish seltzer minerals. A little bitter wood. Raisins. Mild and smooth bourbon. Towards the dry finish mild roast malt appears. Not bad, needs to warm up a bit - a bit clunky when fridge fresh.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2011

Black color, with generous, compact brown head. Aroma of cardboard, roasted malt, dark chocolate, cake and cookies; some alcohol. The roasted malt character is very strong, while the body strength is medium, and the mouthfeel quite dry and ashy; a lot of dark chocolate too; it gets a boozy character from the barrel; the sweetness is almost absent; the final is just about burnt malt and some alcohol. Unbalanced on the ratio roasted-to-sweet.
