Beer Review: DAMP-2

Reviewing DAMP-2 from MAZURT Brewing Company out of Atlanta, Georgia. This beer is a double-iced, whiskey-aged American strong ale. Thank you Wes for sharing this treat!

Score: 98

Bottle #11/13. 2014 vintage bottle served in a GLASS and enjoyed on 11/16/14.

Pours a deep brown color with with a dark to light (almost transparent) fade from the center to the edges of the glass. No head off the pour. Swirling leaves a thin, oily layer with a light brown tint to the sides of the glass. 4.75

Smell: Huge chocolate notes. Molasses, bourbon, dark fruit, toffee, sweet vanilla, caramel, and tobacco smoke. There is a Belgian malt or yeast quality that reminds me a touch of Westy 12. Hugely complex and layered. 5/5

Taste: The taste, like the nose is a chocolate bourbon! Toffee, vanilla, raisin, caramel, fudge and tobacco with a spirit bite on the finish. Lasting alcohol warmth and caramel/fudge flavor.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, virtually no carb a la Kuhnhenn. Oily, coating. Big lasting finish. A touch of spirit bite. 4.75
This brew is like a boozy, chocolate-forward Adam from the Wood minus the smokiness. Impressive, most impressive. 5/5
Cost: Unknown.
