mesperon (205) - Hillsdale, New Jersey, USA - FEB 24, 2010
What a gorgeous mother of a beer! Deep black hole dark - light has no hope of passing throught this beer. Ive never imagined a beer that thick and dark. Nice dark tan head with a little lace, doesnt last. Aroma is of bright dark chocolate, dark coffee beans, cooked sweet fruit - apple maybe?, and nice roasty goodness. Mouthfeel is as you would expect - syrupy thick - with velvety soft carbonation. Starts light - tate doesnt show up until the middle of the tongue. Starts with dark chocolate, carbon, licorice, maybe a hint of vanilla, deep woodsiness. Develops more into dark burnt roast - tastes like a campfire - in a good way. Alcohol is warming, but not overdone. An overlying sweetness doens compete with the bitterness but keeps it from being unpleasant. Kind of a meatiness in the end, crips bitterness lasts in the end. What a glorious beer. I will dream of this, and I may write a song about it.

Can. Sensoric. Pitch black with medium, thick, light brown head. Perfect head retention and good lacing.Highly roasted malts aroma - dark, bitter chocolate, coffee, roasted notes, molasses, licorice. Taste is highly bitter balanced with heavy, roasted bitterness, very long duration. Medium to full body, oily and thick texture, finish is bitter, roasted, ashy and dry. Summary: State of the art of classic, non-BA RIS - takes from the malts whats the best.
