12 Fl Oz Bottle poured at home into a Westmalle chalice on 4th Oct 2012.
Black bodied beer, with a full, dark tanned creamy head. the head sadly soon fell away to a wisp and collar.
Burnt ground coffee and roasted malt loaf type smell, add some dark chocolate and some walnuts: that is the nose I detected.
The taste follows the aromas but with a drier, bitter feel. The hop content comes into its own in the flavours once the beer hits the back of the mouth: this adds some balance and calms down the malts a little, giving the beer a semi-kick and prevents it being too smooth or rich feeling in texture.
I liked it: another Californian I’d happily have again.
12oz bottle @ home. Very dark brown with reddish edges. Nose is dark roast coffee and bourbon barrels. Flavors are burnt roast malt, coffee, dark chocolate, toffee, chicory. Full bodied. The long finish is first roasty, then bitter espresso, then bitter chocolate. Appropriate alcohol. Really nice. nutjes (1144) - Zwevegem, BELGIUM - MAR 30, 2017

Bottle from the Bristol Beer Emporium. Pours black with a purple tint, and an average sized tan colour lasting head. Aroma is a heady mix of chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, dark fruits and treacle. Medium sweetness, quite heavy on roasted bitterness. Medium/full bodied with a slick texture. Finish is of bitter dark chocolate, dry, but with a creamy edge. Quite delicious.
