Futile amongst the 2600+ other reviews out there, but I enjoyed this one a shit ton. 341ml bottle into a tulip, enjoyed January 13. Thanks to my girlfriend for picking this one up on the other side of the country.
Poured pitch black, no light could penetrate this. Moderately brown head, with a couple fingers of head leaving behind some reasonable retention and some nice lacing. Aroma is complex, all kinds of chocolate, rich dark fruits, some vanilla sweetness and a slight suggestion of the alcohol. Taste has less chocolate in the nose and a more prominent coffee flavour. Some bitterness as a result of this, with more rich dark fruits in the finish. Great interplay between the bitterness and sweetness. Great mouthfeel and no sense of the alcohol, rapid drinkability allowing me to yearn for more bottles of this!
