2012 vintage, thanks to rudzud for sharing this bottle as I never reviewed it from The Festival in Worcester a couple years ago.

Very small head, fades quickly, nice legs but little lacing, just about pitch black.

Nose lots of dark malts, some dark fruits, raisiny like, then fudgey cocoa, dark choc, chewy milk choc, little coffee, light bourbon and some toasted oak barrel. Lush choc too. Little oxidation.

Taste creamy choc, lush smooth rich choc, mild vanilla and light coffee, dark choc fudge with some bitter roasty char, faint faint booze warmth, little oxidation again. Light toasted oak and faint bourbon. Finish is bitter with little roast, more fudgey cocoa and mouth coating sticky lingering, little coffee and bourbon oak barrel.

Mouth is fuller bod, lighter carb, smooth creamy.

Overall great but mild oxidation due to screw cap, otherwise amazing. I remember this being ridiculously phenomenal at The Festival, so I wonder if this has dropped off, maybe I'll get to try it again someday and confirm.
