375ml bottle, 2014 vintage, poured into a teku

A- pours motor oil black with nearly no head at all, with what little bit is there disappearing quickly, leaving a coffee-looking beer in the glass

S- dark chocolate and burnt brown sugar mix with sweet molasses, coffee and fig. Also picking up some barrel juice aromas with a bourbon-like sweetness, hints of vanilla and herbal hops close it out

T- initial flavor upfront is subdued, with just some malty sweetness. As it enters mid-palate, some sweet notes of molasses and brown sugar kick in, followed by some dark fruits and chocolate. The finish gives some herbal hoppiness with dry, slightly bitter coffee/chocolate on the close

M- medium-thick body with low carbonation lead to a foamy mouthfeel and a smooth and slick finish, lots of alcohol warmth on the linger

O- a heavy and boozy sipper, would have liked to get more chocolate notes, I'd be interested in trying the BBA version
