UPDATED: JUL 11, 2010 Bottle, 22oz, thx to tarjei. A next to black beer with a small, tan head. Vanilla, alcohol, coffee, some chocolate and roasted malts in the aroma. The flavor is rather sweet, with alcohol, vanilla, roasted malts and coffee-like bitterness. Full-bodied and warming. Long, roasted finish with a good bitterness. A quite intense beer, maybe a bit too much, but really lovely and tasteful. Rating: 8-4-8-4-17-4.1. 090508jtclockwork (17070) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2010
Bottle, 22oz. It pours next to black, with a small, tan head on top. The aroma has mocha, licorice and some meaty scents, all well integrated and smooth. The flavor is lightly meaty, with roasted malts, mocha and a pleasant hoppy bitterness. Full-bodied and quite dry-ish. Bitter finish, both hop-bitter and roasted malts-bitter. Mocha too in the finish. A nice little Christmas beer this one. 100326
