Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a Firestone Walker snifter.

A: Dark - essentially black - and opaque. Forms a half-finger of tan creamy head that fades quickly. Low visible carbonation. 4.5/5

S: Coffee, creamy lactose sweetness, roasted malts, some nuttiness, and leathery musk. 18/20

T: Bitter, dark roasted coffee, roasted malts, lactose, dark nuttiness, touches of mocha and tobacco, and just hints of anise. Despite a year plus on this bottle, there is still a noticeable hop bitterness in the hang with the roasted coffee and sweetness. 39/45

M: Medium body for the style with a sticky mouthfeel. The alcohol presence is fairly well-hidden for the listed ABV. Average carbonation sensation for style. 8.5/10

O: This was quite tasty, especially for the reasonable price point I remember paying. Over a year on this bottle seems to have agreed with the brew quite well. 18/20

Estimated final score: 4.28
Calculated final score: 88/100
Old BA score: 4.40
