StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2006
Deep brown in color with cherry accents when put to light and a beautiful, dark, creamy tan head. Espresso enriched cafe macchiato aroma, along with a bitter, dry dark chocolate precursor, Heath bars and a deep pervasive richness. Flavor is much of the same, with dry, dark chocolate cocoa. Lactic, kettle traits. Syrupy espresso tendency with dry, unflavored iced coffee creationism. Medium-bodied with toned carbonation that lets the character shine, finishing with a double batch of French roast coffee and a dark chocolate stir stick.

Roasted malts are strong in the nose with underlying bittersweet chocolate. Opaque black body is topped by a fair, large-bubbled, off-white head that recedes rapidly to ring. Flavour also figures very strong roasted malts with some dark fruit. Very dry medium body with moderate carbonation. Sampled on tap at the brewpub.
