4.65/5 rDev +1.5%
A: As pitch black as it gets. Oily midnight black body topped with a dark tan head that recedes to a ring around the glass quickly. Viscous legs remain on the glass after each swirl.
S: Massive toffee and caramel, followed by brandied cherry and big bourbon notes. Hard to hide the ABV but it has mellowed considerably after some time in the cellar. Minor (relatively speaking) notes of vanilla and maple provide backing to the ample nose.
T: Dried dark fruits, more caramel, and oaky vanilla. Dark cherry and some sherry like flavors as well. Bitter and tannic dark chocolate in the finish.
M: THICK and incredibly viscous. The mouthfeel supports what are some unbelievably massive flavors.
O: Absolutely fantastic but I honestly preferred it before it was cellared. Still God Tier in the BA stout world but next year I wont sit on the bottles as long.
