I had the XV fresh an found it to be excellent but slightly less then expectation. The XIV has had time to age and mellow and gave away more hearty and creamy flavors.The nose gives off a coconut and fudge brownie which moves subtly to the palate. The tongue then takes on a chocolatey mint, fudge and caramel flavor. This moves more into a dessert with all the decadent sweetness and creaminess.

Opened during a Super Bowl bottle share. I've been holding this beer for two years and just decided it was time. Really nice black ale with surprising carbonation. Lots of oak and toasted grains on the nose. This beer aged REALLY WELL. Absolutely no alcohol bite is present. Very smooth and for the ABV this drinks incredibly well! Body was a little too light for my taste on a strong stout. Amazing beer and I still have one left in the cellar. Maybe next super bowl.
