In a four year vertical - 2010 through 2013 - this was my second favorite (2013 > 2012 > 2010 > 2011). Milk chocolate flavor where 2013 was more fudge, 2010 was bakers chocolate, and 2011 was cocoa powder.

Surprise bottle of this from Rutager in our recent trade. Thanks heaps man. Have enjoyed every Blackbeerd I've seen so far, so am expecting the same here.

From a bomber into a snifter
Bottled 27 November 2012

APPEARANCE: A black pour yields a one finger, medium looking, fluffy tan head with great retention. Jet black body with lower levels of carbonation. Head slowly fades to a splotchy wisp and ring that remains until the end but leaves no real lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Bourbon, oak, sweet cream and vanilla with milk and dark chocolate on the nose. Coconut and a faint roasted base to support it all. Bold and enticing for sure. Really nice.

TASTE: Bourbon, dark chocolate and sweet cream up front with more chocolate, bourbon and alcohol at the swallow. Big and lingering aftertaste is roasted with bourbon, oak, vanilla, sweet cream and bitter, dark chocolate as balance. This is a great combo of sweet bourbon barrel and roasted, bitter, chocolaty base beer. Really nice and well put together.

PALATE: Medium-full body with medium levels of carbonation evident. Enough weight on the palate, creamy, goes down smooth and finishes mouth-coating. Some heat lingers as well.

OVERALL: Really, really good stuff. Great balance, plenty of hop bitterness, and a great feel to boot. Good looking too. Was impressed with the base Blackbeerd and the 2011 barrel aged version, and this one follows suit. Enjoyed this very much and would gladly drink it, or any other version of Blackbeerd for that matter, over and over again. Thanks again Rutager. Always good times.
