ccex (1750) - Lansing, Illinois, USA - DEC 4, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2019 750ml bottle (regular 2019 version) pours an opaque dark brown/black with smooth mocha head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is complex with lots of roasted malts, chocolate, raisins, cherries, and even some floral hops. Taste is sweet with slight bitterness and alcohol warmth in the finish. Body is full with slight carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. This was much smoother than I expected, with the 12% ABV not as obvious as I feared.
A fitting big beer for a special occasion. The only thing I think might make it better would be barrel aging. Bif (2874) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - SEP 10, 2019
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2019 O n tap at Shamrocks. Pours a black color with a tan head and bit of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruit and hint of chocolate. Taste of roasted malt dark fruit with just a hint of chocolate. Nominal bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly full body, smooth, flavorful and not boozy as expected. Nicely crafted. coachd (1935) - O'Fallon, Missouri, USA - SEP 6, 2019
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2019 Very complex aroma. Coffee, chocolate, dark fruit, a little boozy. Pitch black with a brown head. Tastes roasted with a good amount of chocolate and lactose sweetness to balance. Great smooth finish, palate is full and rich. This lives up to its reputation. Slick (1970) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUL 26, 2019
