This one is from a bottle dated 11/19/12. So about 5 months old. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter
Color is dark brown while pouring. Deep black inside the glass. Head is about two fingers thick brown tan colored fluffy head. Excellent retention shown by the head. Awesome lacing on the sides left by each sip as well as by the slowly receding head. Opaque.
Aroma is just phenomenal and more complex than i could decipher. Abundant coffee is the first thing that you notice. In a blind smell test this could be mistaken for a cup of ground coffee. Strong charred and burnt up roasted dark malts. Some cocoa and chocolate. No booze whatsoever.
Taste is just brilliant. Enters with a burst of coffee. Roasted malts then takeover and provide the bitter and burnt up taste. A good amount of hop bitterness as well. Chocolate, chicory and oatmeal notes. Finish is dry with subtle bitterness.
Mouth feel is full bodied. Slightly medium thick. Well rounded. Warm. Creamy. Bitter. Low to moderate carbonation. Alcohol is somewhat apparent in the slickness in the mouth.
