Bottle from the local taphouse shop. Exceptional, nice spicy notes. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, vanilla, notes of liquorice, chilli. Taste is sweet and bitter, with very long length. Palate is creamy, spicey, and full bodied. Black, with a frothy head. GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Trump! This brew is very special indeed. From the rich aromatics of chocolate to the density of body which lays across my tongue like melted cocoa with perfectly creamy carbonation. This brew is incredible. I would’nt say the rye portion was noticeable in an obvious way but I’m sure without it the balance on this very chocolate malt forward brew would not exist. The finish lingers forever. Despite this brew richness it is very drinkable. Do yourself a favor and try this sometime. You won’t regret it.
