2012 bottle

A-Black with a beatiful 1" head that disappears quickly. Nice early lacing.

S-Stars off very boozy, which is a personal favorite. Then cocoa and coffee.

T-Nice early alcohol with chocolate and creamy coffee notes.

M-Medium bodied with hint of booze.

O-Nice RIS easily attainable with great pricepoint.

A - Aggressive pour into a snifter yielded a mighty head which shrunk down to a thin layer over the top. Slight lacing throughout.
S - Chocolate and booze dominate the nose with a touch of coffee and molasses.
T - Dark chocolate hits first with the booze to follow which clings to the palate for some time after a taste. A touch of bitterness at the end.
M - Very nice. Full and silky, clings to mouth and stays for some time. Very balanced carb as well.
O - Very good RIS. Think I'm really gonna enjoy this a lot more after some time in the cellar.
