Feb. 2014 release - tasted fresh and again at 6 months. 55deg. in tulip glass.

A - Jet black with ~1.5" head when poured aggressively.

S - Chocolate, coffee, vanilla, malt, smoke, and alcohol

T/M - Initial tasting was mostly bitter chocolate , alcohol, and a little thin. At 6 months the coffee, vanilla, and other flavors start to emerge and the texture is creamier.

O - As with most beers of this style, it gets better with age. I thought the fresh bottle was okay, but many of the components were harsh (hops, chocolate, alcohol). It comes together nicely and will probably be even better at the next 6 month interval. Prost!
