No bottle date, but probably 2-ish years old.

A: Pours a very dark born with a nice, good sized and dense medium-brown head. Fades very slowly. Top-notch head retention with a thick layer of foam persisting. Moderate splotches of lacing is left behind.

S: Dark fruits initially. Lots of oatmeal give it a creamy, grainy quality. Mild roasted malt character, some char and chocolate mainly. Hints of smoke.

T: Lots of chocolate with hints of char and smoke. Super creamy oatmeal smooths it out immediately but is most apparent in the middle where it is pure creamy oatmeal. Chocolate shows up in the finish again but it's more of a bitter dark chocolate here. Goes great with the oatmeal. Hints of anise and chocolate and oatmeal in the lingering aftertaste. Lightest hints of smoke throughout.

M: Heavy, thick, amazingly creamy and smooth. A wonder to drink.

O: This is one helluva beer. Great RIS but with a strong oatmeal character, making it oh so smooth and creamy. A little age may have mellowed it out even more. Flavors are well integrated and smooth. Beer goes down amazingly easy for a 9.4% RIS. I really enjoyed this one. Only reason I can't give it top marks is because of the relatively simple flavors (not as complex as some big RISes can be) and plain, mellow aroma.
