2010 bottle shared last night at a stout tasting.
A: Pours really dark with a nice mocha cap even in my tasting glass. Tons of body on this one, just coats the glass as I swirl away.
S: First and foremost if the chocolate, nice bitter dark chocolate gets pushed to the front by the deeply roasted grains while dark fruit notes float in and out of the mix.
T: I'm getting a lot of chocolate still, as expected, but the cocoa nibs really gave this some nice sweet dark fruit flavors that get brought into balance with the bitter cut. An almost herbal/mineral flavor can be found in the finish. Flavors definitely hang with this one.
M: Medium bodied with carbonation to match, I think a year did this one some good. Body seems spot on with some nice warmth but no real "heat" to speak of.
D: I may now have to seek out the barrel aged version. After getting my bottle last year I was thinking it might actually fall into the over-hyped camp, but considering what I gave up for it I'm very pleased. It really stood out against all the other stouts.

Poured out with a creamy tan head which stuck around longer than most stouts and leveled to a thin covering. A little bit of lacing as well. Sticking the noise into a snifter revealed notes of dark chocolate, vanilla, booze, and sweet tobacco. Taste went well along with the smell. Chocolate and a touch of vanilla and coffee. Mouthfeel was just a bit lacking for a stout, but good carb balance. Overall a pretty good beer which I would try again.
