radarsock (1153) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 1, 2013
StFun supplied. Thanks! 650 mL bottle containing a darkish wooded brown with which a khaki head half a fingernail in length rested on. Smells fairly sweet, boozy and caramelized. Raisins on the forefront, met with pilsener malt, ash, and chocolate potato chips. Perhaps some yeast, as well. Tastes basically how it smells: raisins, caramels, smoke and artificial chocolate. Heat, soured milk, tobacco and yeast by swallow. Was kind of a like a dark beer smoothie wherein a few dark beers are blended together in a blender hoping for the best. This is not terrible, or great. Its... fine, for the most part.

Received this via Free Beer Week a couple years ago. Huge thanks to whoever sent this, I just cant remember. Been holding it for a long time. Black pour with a small beige head. Decent retention around the edge of my snifter. Nice aroma full of chocolate, light roast and some fruity yeast esters. Excellent. Flavors were way smooth and well rounded. Age has done this guy good. Chocolate, notes of vanilla, light sweetness, some roasted malt. Smooth malty finish with a light bitterness. Slick, carbonation just a but more than average. Awesome stuff.
