3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Ebony in hue and capped with one finger of cinnamon-colored froth. The aroma is intense, a mix of fruit and roast and booze. Bitter dark cacao and reduced chocolate sauce, a dash of burnt coffee beans, smoked tree bark, prune and a dash or teriyaki. The flavor is similarly packed, sweet dessert wine meeting chocolate bars meeting milk, with a subtle lingering roasty malt bitterness. The body is a sugar-laden medium, creamy and smooth. A big beer to be sure, but not so rich that I couldn’t polish off the bottle on my own.
