3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Ei8ht Ball in a sampler. Nice to see this one make an appearance. Pours a deep, mostly opaque brown with amber edges and a small beige ring. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, a bit of soy and metal, dark fruits, and roast. Flavor is the same. Very smooth. Light-medium bodied, with low carbonation. Maybe a bit past it’s prime but still good.

On tap at the party source in bellvue ky growler station. Puff pours a rich black brown opaque pint. Head is minimal fine bubbles. Nose is of dark stone fruit, chocolate and bourbon. Taste is dark chocolate covered cherries dipped in bourbon with a hint of oak. Body is silky. Finish is good bitters. Very rich beer with just a bit of the bourbon around the edges. Quite nice.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; pitch black with low carbonation and razor-thin off-white lacing. Smells and tastes SWEET, chocolatey, and boozy with a thin, average mouthfeel. Solid.

Sample on tap at Cincy Beerfest 2012. Dark, bit clear black color. Good thin khaki / tan head. Nice, thick sheets of lace. Awesome, creamy chocolate milky aroma. Woody, with a long complex woody aftertaste. Thin body, but a creamy texture. Light carbonation. Dry finish. Sweeter, sort of boozy taste. Awesome woody milky aroma. This is great, whatever this is. Very tasty and pleasurable to sip. Complex and interesting.
