Bottled @ Roosteri. Bottled 07/06/12. Almost black beer, dark beige head. Truly intense malt flavor, oily liquid bread, sweet dough, raw cocoa and loads of fragrant, light dried fruits and slightly acidic berries. Deep, deep maltiness, liquid bread, sticky and slightly acrid toast. Long aftertaste with cold coffee and loads of raw chocolate. Slightly oaky finish has aged sherry notes with firm, clean bitterness. Full body, velvety soft texture with woody dry finish.
