Opened with little to no aging. Purchased at Jester King two weeks prior. Dark and malty with a bit of acidity on the finish. Dried fruit and coffee aroma. Surprisingly smooth for the ABV. Lighter body than expected. A bit of the alcohol shows up at the finish and as the beer warms.

Bottle purchased at Oliver's Beverage in Albany, NY.

Pours a very deep black (what did you expect?), with no real head or lacing.

Smells like chocolate, roasted malt, sherry, dark fruits, and espresso.

The taste is similar. Slightly oily in taste, with rich creamy nutty coffee flavor, a slight bit of spicy booze, vanilla, chocolate liqueur, sherry, roasted malt, and burnt coffee grounds. Very sweet and intense flavor.

This one is a little more thin-bodied than I expected a 13.1% stout to be. It's not too thin, though, I just wanted a thicker body and mouthfeel. Still very creamy, and ultimately pretty drinkable, because the alcohol is hidden fairly well.

I had heard that there was major bottle variation with this one, luckily me and those involved at the share last night, this was a good bottle.
