A Black and viscous: motor-oilesque, but a little bit of carbonation in there (3/3)
S Wow, alcohol and chocolate--powerful indeed (9/12)
T So much flavor packed into this strong ale: chocolate and dark malt dominate with a noticeable alcohol after-taste (17/20)
M Very thick but a little bit of bubbles. Really dries out the tongue at the end. (5/5)
O The amount of chocolate in this beer surprised me. To contrast a similarly strong stout, there’s a lot more malt and chocolate to balance the booze. Certainly strong, but if I had to reach for a strong beer, this would be the one. Share this guy with a friend, I don’t think most humans should try to tackle this alone. (8/10)

42/50

'13 Vintage, drank 09/22/14.

A - Very much has that classic stout appearance, albeit at the browner rather than blacker end of the spectrum.

S - Chocolate, vanilla, oaked bourbon.

T - Primarily getting roasted malts, but not much in the way of chocolate, vanilla, toffee, coffee or barrel character.

M - A little tepid and flat.

O - The alcohol is hidden well but it needs a greater depth of flavour. I found it a little weak-flavoured and watery. No residual sweetness. Price is extortionate.
