From the 750 ml. bottle dated 21-Mar-13. Sampled more than a year later on June 15, 2014.

The pour is a beautiful looking dark brown to practically black with a long lasting silky tan head.

In the aroma I pick up some dark malts, yeast, molasses, a touch of spice, and a sourness.

The body is bold and smooth.

The taste brings out those roasted malts and spices briefly but then the sour character teases the palate and lingers to the end. But it is not overly sour or tart. It does not make me pucker up. 16 months of aging enhanced this one I am sure.

Color- hazy ebony. Full head tinted light mocha.

Aroma- roasty mild grains, almost like a hint of pumpernickle bread.

Taste- starts roasty and rich yet light, then adds a layer of complexity with hints of over roasted coffee and perhaps a subtle smoke, progressing with a licorice note mixed with brown sugar, finishing long, slightly roasty and yet dry like a quality English porter. Bottled on 2/12/2013. Purchased June 2014 at an HEB in North Austin.

Poured from a 765 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted 6/10/14.
