Bottle label: 2013 version, bottle #149 out of 450.

Appearance: pours a black chocolate color with a mil chocolate colored 2" head that slowly falls to a thick surface foam.

Smell: roasted malt, chocolate, and some alcohol come through to the nose.

Taste: big roasted malt, dark bread, and dark chocolate flavors here. Prunes, a bit of molasses, and a hearty bitterness rounds out this big beer. Alcohol provides a bit of warming after you swallow.

Mouthfeel: heavy in body. Smooth at the start, velvety at the finish with some warmth and a touch of dryness. Long lasting aftertaste here.

Overall: Super RIS. Very slow sipping, but this is a meal in a glass. Expensive at $16 a bottle, but worth the splurge.

2011 edition.

Poured from a 750ml. bottle to a snifter. Served north of 62º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a dark chocolate head of a thick frothy consistency. Body color is a near black, moderate viscosity. Head retention is above average despite some bubbly activity. Really pleasing appearance with a great deal of depth in the head and body. 4.5

(Smell) Bitter roasted malts, mild syrupy sweetness. Mild funk and cardboard from moderate oxidation. Potency is high on aroma. Very high potency and sharp tones. 4

(Taste) Cocoa nibs, black malt bitterness, graham crackers, touches of mild fruit character, cherry. 4.25

(Mouthfeel) Textures of mild syrup, mellow viscosity and moderate thickness. Carbonation is light and creamy. Alcohol presence is medium. Body is shy of heavy for the style, and heavy overall. 4.25

(Overall) A really deep and complex RIS with a ton of flavor and character. No regrets trying this one. 4.25
