look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

22oz bottle purchased around in mid to late 2010 for $9. Poured into a Delirium snifter.

Appearance (3.5): Dark, oily black with only a touch of brown around the edges. Brown head recede to almost nothing and doesn't leave lacing.

Aroma (4.25): Dark, roasty malts. Dark chocolate and some toasted bread. A touch muted for how strong the flavors are.

Taste (4.75): Full flavored and aggressive lots of cocoa then mocha through the middle. Finishes with bittersweet chocolate with a lingering slight burnt flavor.

Mouthfeel (4.5): Very smooth but not creamy. A touch of bitterness in the middle but well masked by the chocolate in the finish followed by the char. Full bodied and medium-low carbonation.

Overall (4.5): This beer aged really well. You can tell there was a bit of heat that has faded and this is smooth and enjoyable. Really glad I kept this one to myself.
