11.5 oz bottle into snifter, no bottle dating. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 1 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, vanilla, cream, and roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and vanilla/cocoa spicing; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, vanilla, dark bread, cream, light smoke/char, and roasted earthiness. Fair amount of roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, vanilla, cream, light smoke/char, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity, balance, and robustness of dark/roasted malt and cocoa/vanilla spice flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome spiced stout style. All around great robustness, balance, and complexity of dark/roasted malt and cocoa/vanilla spice flavors; and very smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.
