What makes this beer different: One of the most complex beers I have had in a long time

Will I be drinking this again: Its a great beer, but SO expensive.

Grade: A

5/9/2011: I’ve really been slacking in posting. Again my apologies, but getting settled into this new job has been taking up a lot of my free time. Hopefully will get back on track here very soon. On a good note though the new job has been awesome thus far. Got my shoes shined on the second day, only had to buy my own lunch once, and got a half off gift certificate to the best public golf course in Pittsburgh. Gotta love perks!

I will be judging this beer pretty harshly due to its price. Not sure if its the most expensive beer per ounce I have ever had, but I guarantee its damn close. The nose smells like freshly ground coffee, and some bakers chocolate. The flavor is fudgey, black coffee, and a hint of smoke. Citrus hops even make a little bit of an appearance. The use of oatmeal gives it a very velvety mouthfeel. Mouthfeel is really the allstar attribute to this beer in my opinion. This beer is worth trying once, but at the price tag I likely will not be drinking it again.

Picture of the day: This is a pretty slick hair-piece.
