22 oz bottle dated Dec 20, 2010, poured into a DFH Snifter
A - Pitch black pour with an impressive, creamy looking, mocha colored head. Retention seems to go on forever and leaves a sticky lace...an impressive looking beer.
S - Nose immediately following the pour is heavenly; very smooth smelling with notes of milk chocolate and coffee beans. After sitting for a moment a decent amount of boozy aroma comes through, and waiting a little longer yields sort of a bitter, coffee grounds sort of scent.
T&M - Smooth and creamy up front, velvety even. Alcohol is discernible in the back but is relatively well hidden for almost 10%. I think some of the coffee/espresso notes may have faded with the age I put on this bottle, but a light bitterness reminiscent of espresso remains. More of a baker's chocolate flavor than the nose gave me, with a hint of coffee bean at the end.
O - A very nice, big beer; smooth enough to warrant reminding oneself not to drink it too fast. This one has been in my cellar for a bit; I'm going to have to grab a fresh one and compare; impressive nonetheless.

Was lucky to grab a bomber of this fresh from the distributor.
A: beautiful dark brew with bright caramel head the whole way through.
S: strong notes of espresso and oak with a slight note of booz.
T: also strong espresso and oak most of the way through with a finish of more boozy than I prefer or hoped for. However, with the ABV that it has I guess you could make a case for it being smooth.
M: surprisingly clean (whatever the heck that means). I was expecting a much larger and fuller mouthful - very malty and almost milkshake-like. It was much more drinkable and smooth, until the boozy finish. Definitely worth a bomber though.
