Vintage 2012

Poured this 2 year old vintage the night before picking up this years allotment. It poured a deep black with slight tan head that lasted long than I thought. It was terrific. The alcohol was buried and the toasty chocolate flavors were prevalent.

The next day we tried the 2014 release on tap at The Publick House....this beer needs every bit of the 2 years that the 2012 had.

The 2012 was fantastic and I'd bet will age gracefully for more than the 2 years I gave it. I will certainly be giving the 2013 and 2014 vintages the same treatment.

A - Pours a motor oil black with a huge dark brown active head that fades slowly.

S - Malt, a touch of chocolate, overall pretty mild.

T - Creamy milk chocolate and vanilla. So good!

D - Tons of carbonation with a heavy body. Silky smooth.

O - Nose is subtle, but the taste is sublime. Great beer!
