At Church Key on tap in a small tulip.
This beer starts out a bit hot but definitely smooths out. It’s a fine beer but there are better in this style. 4.25
A - Black as night with almost no head (tan). Slightly viscous in the glass. - 4
S – Great nose. Coffee and roasted malts. - 4.5
T – A bit hot. Roasted malts but very little coffee when compared to the nose - 3.75
MF – Great mouth feel. Creamy, dry with some slickness. 4.25

4.19/5 rDev -1.2%
In review is a 2010 Vintage.
A - Pours pitch black with minimal carbonation, a light caramel colored lacing ring, and lots of legs when the glass is swirled, very viscous.
S - Dark chocolate cocoa malt predominantly with light cream, lightly toasted caramel, and some mild alcohol, any dark fruit is very subdued in the nose.
T - Nice complexity with layers of different things going on: bitter dark milk chocolate, cream, toasted caramel, plums, dark berries, light char, light dark fruit tartness which adds a nice touch to this wonderfully complex beer.
M - Thick, full bodied, and total velvet on the tongue with a creamy smooth sensation.
O - 13% ABV is deceptive as the warming is ever so slight making this a dangerously drinkable beer. Being it's a 2010, this bottle is very mellow which was expected. World class.
