Nose: molasses and melted chocolate mix while caramel nougat camps out in the middle. Dense and heavy. Polished dark leather and polished dark wood. Sundried and meaty figs and dates. Sweetly smoky in the back.
Palate: sweet, dense, thick, heavy, smoked, woody, twiggy. Cooked molasses and burnt caramel. Dries top of my tongue immediately. Leather burnt over black root and black earth. Tarry along the edges. Love how the burnt molasses, caramel, and smoke weave together seamlessly. Char and tar lurks along the edges. Leather atop the tongue.
Final Thoughts: I was a bit skeptical first going into this beer but by the end I was in love. Rich, decadent, and certainly a unique beer that might not be for everyone. Food in liquid form.
