12, 13, & 14 drink so differently! 12 is amazing with a couple years on it, 13 was great fresh, but awkward at a year, and 14 is packed full of bitter-sweet chocolatey goodness - I cannot wait (but I will) to see how this develops over the coming months and years!

Just fantastic stuff. Penalties for price, availability, and basically making everything else in my cellar slightly less appealing. Appeals to me as a lover of imperial stouts and chocolate shakes.

It was a ridiculous adventure to acquire this beer, and it was even a consolation prize, because everyone in line before us got either vanilla, coffee or barleywine. But this ended up being the best of the bunch, I'm told. Jet black, dark tan thick head, smell was okay but definitely pleasant, very boozy. Taste was an arresting experience. I did a double take on how deep and smoky and smooth this was.

Overall not worth standing in line on Black Friday for considering the limitations put on by the liquor store (two BOTTLE limit per person, one bottle per style). This beer is maybe too limited of a release. But damn, it's good.
