Opaque black beer, good fluffy tan head. Palate is airy and semi dry with modest fine carbonation. The dark malts are surprisingly thin and there is a strong bitterness, not roast malt derived, perhaps the wood. Unsweet dark fruits and mild but bitter whiskey. Light dry bitter finish. No shades of light here and I found it a little hard to drink.

[6084-20131129] Bottle. Mild shellfish but mainly red wine and bold chewy wood notes in the aroma. Black brown body with a medium-lasting foamy brown head. Smooth toasted wooden barrel flavour with a long aftertaste. Full body has a bit of a burning feel. Delicious. (8/4/8/4/16) 4.0

2013-11-29. Black body with a lovely foamy chocolate milk coloured head. Aroma is a touch odd, alcohol, whisper of iodine, mild roast, coffee notes. Flavour is similar, tangy iodine like whiskey notes, mild roast, dark malt core, coffee, moderate bitterness in the finish grows and lingers. Average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Good beer, not for me. Bottle shared by HogTownHarry

[Bottle (330ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o HogTownHarry] Pours black with ruby hues and an average size light-brown head. Aroma of coffee galore followed by roasted malt, alcohol and light chocolate. Flavour of roasted malt, coffee, light hops, vanilla and a big bitter/boozy finish. Medium bodied, slightly oily moouthfeel. Really good stuff.
