11 vintage.

Pours jet black with a frothy chocolate head that dissipates into a ring of foam.

Aroma is boozy, with notes of chocolate dominating the underlying roast character.

Flavor is sweeter than expected. Chocolate dominates into the finish, which is slightly charred. Sherry notes add complexity.

Body is very smooth and fairly thick, with minimal carbonation and noted alcohol warmth.

A little overly sweet, but a good nightcap. Like the rich chocolate notes.

Serving type: on-tap

Bottle from Tipples. Pours pitch black with a massive dark brown head that goes up 3/4 of the glass. The head turns more creamy and khaki colored as it dissipates. Big sweet and roasty aroma, definite bitter roast on the smell, some brown sugar and chocolate and a bit of dark fruit. Big sweet malts up front that fades into a super smokey roasty flavor that envelopes the palate. Lots of dark sugars and a hint of chocolate, but mainly roasty malts all over. Thinner than expected, a medium mouthfeel with low carbonation. This came off on the cloying side somehow behind the roast, and a bit alcoholic. Meh.
