4.85/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. A small layer of creamy brown foam on top, with the beer itself a dark brown to black color.

Smell is very mild, just a hint of coffee and chocolate.

Taste is delicious, a combination of chocolate, coffee, and just a hint of oats. It is sweet but without being cloying. Apparently this beer contains 60 IBUs but I did not notice much bitterness, very well balanced.

Mouthfeel is excellent, a small bit of carbonation helps balance the sweetness. Ridiculously drinkable.

Overall, just an outstanding beer.

4.48/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

12oz into a snifter, bottled 11/09/13

Pours pitch black with a finger of mocha colored foam. Good retention and lacing, no carbonation coming up from the sides of the glass

Smells of dark roasted coffee, dark chocolates, some vanilla, dark fruits, toffee, and finishes with some alcohol. Everything comes together pretty well

Taste is with the nose pretty well, strong upfront coffee and dark chocolate along with figs, cherry, and other dark fruits. Vanilla and toffee on the finish, ending with a splash of alcohol

Feel is moderately bitter with a heavy body. Finishes pretty dry, alcohol concealed well but enjoyably present

Overall glad I got to try this. Three more sitting in the cellar
