330ml bottle poured into a snifter, bottle courtesy of Long813; Batch 097 with a BBD of April 16, 2012. Cheers dude!
Pours a few shades off of a midnight black, with about two and a half fingers of a somewhat soapy, mocha head. Decent, fat lacing lines the glass with some mild retention. Smells of chocolate, vanilla, caramel and touch of smoke. Rich, roasted malts in the taste, loaded with a ton of bitter dark chocolate, coffee and maybe some dark fruits which lie almost undetectable (at least by palate) in the background. Full bodied mouthfeel, with a fairly low carbonation level and a bitter and dry finish, likely attributed to the coffee. Quite drinkable at the ABV. Fairly good stuff here, good but a little lacking in the flavour department.
