Brewer Description: (from bottle) A few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all – it must taste rare!

Intro: A 22 fl. oz. bomber with no clear bottled on or best before date. Poured into a snifter.
Appearance: Deep slick motor oil black with not much head despite an aggressive pour and some sparse spotty lacing.
Aroma: Roasty dark malts, molasses, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and a hint of char.
Taste: Roasty, chocolate, molasses, caramel and coffee. On the back end, at times there is this light lingering smoked honey glazed bacon flavour. Interesting!
Mouthfeel: Creamy, full bodied with low carbonation.
Overall: A nice sipper for a cool day.
