Got this beauty today from a good friend. Turns out to be a vintage Oct 07 2010 bottle.

Chilled to cellar temp

A- poured beautiful black with a dark tan head

S- amazing. Deep roasted chocolate malt, alcohol, charred oak. It's hard to say in words.

T- Roasted caramel, burnt sugar, vanilla, bitter hops but finishes smooth with alcohol and charred oak.

M- Great body, almost chewy. Good carbonation.

O- One of the best oak aged stouts that I have ever tried

Turns out the place my friend got this has several more. I'm going to purchase the rest tomorrow.

It's dark and stormy outside so I wanted a dark, rich, malty brew to go with the evening. Jackpot!

This stuff pours an opaque brown that's almost black with a thick brown head that lightens as it recedes leaving almost no film on the top but lots of nice, sticky lacing on the glass. The head is about a finger high and doesn't last too long. The smell is rich, roasted malts with caramel undertones. I didn't notice any of the vanilla mentioned on the bottle, though. Almost no hops come through at all, neither in the aroma nor in the flavor, which is, like the smell, heavy with the roasted malt with caramel, cocoa and coffee mixed in for excellent complexity. There is sweetness on the front of the tongue along with beautifully balanced bitterness as the liquid washes over that portion of my taste buds. This is one full bodied brew, almost viscous in texture, lightly carbonated, very creamy in the mouth.

Overall, this is an excellent beer, outstanding, but not truly world class. That said, however, it's a remarkably good counterpart to a sweet Russian Imperial Stout like Samuel Smith's, more bitter, less sweet. Somewhat more expensive, so I doubt I'll have another anytime soon, but still worth trying.
