daknole (9044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Brown pour, brown head. Sadly this one has some soy notes, but I must say I was able to wade past them and taste what is a very nice beer. Smooth and rich with a nice chocolate and roast backbone. Too bad for the soy.

On tap at FreshCraft. Black appearance with a dissipating brown head, minimal lacing. Aroma of whiskey, vanilla, chocolate, sweet malts, oak, toffee/caramel and alcohol. Heavily sweet with minimal bitterness. Medium body with a slick, creamy feel and soft carbonation. Pretty good, but I prefer it unaged.

Thanks to errl for sharing this bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is full of wood, mint and roasted malt. The flavor is a bit different. I get some strong rye and chocolate notes as well a some dark fruit, roasted malt and medium oak. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
