Reviewed on 5/11/11. 2008 bottle properly cellared.
Poured in to a snifter. Pitch black with a dark brown head that was about 1 finger thick. Some mild lacing.
Smell was dark molasses and burnt caramel. Sweet with dark chocolate and stil a light bitterness. Toffee and notes of coffe with a light vanilla aroma. Lightly boozey.
Taste had dark chocolate upfront with a warming, boozey finish. Very smooth through the sip. Notes of vanilla and dark burnt malts. Coffee and molasses with toffee. Good sweetness with an almost earthy hop bitterness. Complex and delicious.
Mouthfeel was medium/heavy body with medium carb. Slightly sticky finish.
Drinkability was good but limited with high ABV and signs of warmth. Great blend of flavors.
