Brouwerij (920) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2012
22 oz. bottle. Pours a dark ruby-brown with a quarter finger of head that settles very quickly. No lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, hints of coffee, hay. Flavor is roasted malt, coffee up front, fading into cocoa tones and slight . Finishes with coffee, caramel, malty, nutty and mild soy sauce and alcohol tones. Slight bitterness that lingers and a slight pepper heat that builds after many sips. Soft to moderate carbonation and medium-heavy body. A strong, rich, malty brew but the pepper flavor doesn’t come through nearly as much as I’d have liked. The soy sauce and malt tones really come out as it warms making it a tough one to finish.
