A: Pours a beautiful PITCH BLACK, one finger head. Decent to good lacing.
S: Immediate intense coffee and chocolate notes, very pleasant. All the aromas come together into a perfectly balanced symphony. Behind the coffee and chocolate comes a nice roast malt and caramel undertone. Excellent aroma.
T: Wow. Taste follows aroma perfectly: Intense coffee and chocolate in the front, followed by an assertive bitterness and slightly sweet finish. What's so incredible about this beer is how effortlessly the flavors and aromas play together.
M: Silky smooth mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Chewy and malty
O: This is really an incredible brew, and there's a reason there is so much hype about it! There was great attention to detail and time investment into this brew, and they have surely perfected it. Great job, i'll be picking up a case.

2013 vintage poured from a bottle into a tulip.
A - Nice dark black pour as expected. Quite an impressive 2 finger khaki head that stays around longer than I thought.
S - Not as pungent as I was expecting, but had an extremely nice subtle scent of coffee and chocolate. Bourbon comes through as it warms.
T - Much like the smell, but magnified much higher in the taste. Coffee, chocolate, vanilla, hints of dark fruits all come through while the bourbon becomes apparent the more this beer warms. Perfect.
M - Silky, oily heavy mouthfeel suits the beer, but perhaps still a tad too thin. Slightly bitter and fairly easy to drink, but a sipper.
O - This beer is definitely worth the hype! (Tastes better with age.)
