22oz. bomber with a bottling date of 11/06/08. Enjoyed immensely on 4/15/09.
A: Pours a thick, inky black hue with a fantastic two-finger head that's tan in color and thick and creamy in appearance. Pretty nice lacing and retention.
S: The dominant scent switches back and forth between dark roasted coffee beans and rich chocolate malts. Also includes vanilla, coconut, and an oaky quality that couches everything else going on with the smell. There are hops back there too. When I had this on draft about a month ago, the coffee/espresso bean scent was more pronounced.
T&M: Rich, earthy, woody robust taste. Dark chocolate, But it's also really clean and crisp considering the full body. Velvety mouthfeel that clings to the mouth. Not at all weighed down by a syrupy, booze quality that I thought might be there based on the pour and nose. The alcohol warmth is there but tough to judge simply because I've had a couple DFH Palo Santos lately and everything else is relative. The hops produce a sticky, resiny layer on the lips.
D: Really enjoyable. I'm going to pair my next bottle with a chocolate-based dessert. Terrific take on the style and aged to perfection.
