Bottle number 2292, 2011 vintage. Got this one as a birthday present. Poured into a snifter.
A- Pours black with some very dark red tint towards the top of the glass. A nice caramel color head subsides a bit yet sticks around for awhile. Some nice lacing is seen on the sides of the glass also.
S- Really the strongest smell is the alcohol. Through the alcohol I get hints of chocolate, coffee, malts and maybe some vanilla. The alcohol is very overpowering in the smell though.
T- Starts out nice and smooth followed by the slight warming from the alcohol. It isn't as hot as I would have thought based on the smell. Also gives a nice roasty taste, accompanied by chocolates, coffee, and dark fruits.
M- Heavy yet smooth. Carbonation amount is perfect. A great sipper. Nice alcohol warming.
This is an awesome beer. Not sure any beer is worth a $30 price tag, but an interesting and rare treat.
