AdamChandler (3920) – Enfield, New Hampshire, USA – NOV 28, 2015
From a 6-liter bottle. Split 2 ways.
A – A good dark black to brown with a little bit of see-through bits. a 1 finger head, espresso color.
S – The nose is really interesting. It’s unlike any stout I’ve had. It has this sweetness with a funky smell with cocoa, even some citrus. all kinds of really interesting aromas going on
T – This is really interesting. There’s this very medicinal sticky taste that is from middle to finish. that part is really hard to make me want to take another sip. Up front, very distinct chocolate with funk, woody charred acidity like a burnt tar taste.
M – Dense, oily, thick
O – Oh boy, this one was really hard to rate. I’m even getting some gasoline taste as it warms up. WTF is wrong with my mouth. Did I eat something awful to make this taste so rough. Sorry Dave. I’m going to try to get a bottle to have this again with a fresh palate because I’m probably not doing it justice.
