Bottle shared at the Plan Bee Savage release. '10 vintage.

Pours a very dark black, looks a little thin, though. There's a small mocha colored head, and no real lacing.

Smells like dark fruits, leather, tobacco, caramel, and honey.

This is in an interesting stout, there's a lot more flavors than the typical roasted malt and chocolate, which are there, but in small amounts. I get the impression of honey-covered raisins here, with some vanilla, leather, figs, tobacco, etc. With the age, 4 years at this juncture, the bitter roastiness seems to have all but faded, which is ok. It's a bit sweet, but not cloying.

This is slightly thin bodied, with a oily but creamy mouthfeel, and a very low level of carbonation. Age seems to have diminished the mouthfeel here.

This is excellent, I'm glad to have finally tried this one. At this age, it's become more like an old ale or something like that, rather than a stout, but it tastes really great.
