Disclaimer bottle says best before 08/08/10

Drank 3-22-13: I think it is past its time. Very flat, no head. Dark black color. Mild boozy and sweet aroma with some raisins.
Taste: a bit flat as well. Does not have the complexity and flavor of the fresh Tokyo*.
A bit of a dissappointment.

BB 01/15

Pours a huge tan coarse head over black body. Fades to film, little lace.

Assault of aromas of sweet vanilla, choc, and scotch as I opened the bottle.

Taste is smooth and integrated, vanilla driven, and yes as the label says, some ginger bite in among the chocolate and smooth roast elements. Ginger bite holds sway among the bittering notes on back palate.

Mouthfeel surprisingly carbonated. But creamy and medium bodied at the same time.

Sensational beer. Not had too many BA stouts and I now see there is no going back.
