2012 vintage. Waxed 750 ml bottle. Served in a CCB snifter.

A: Pours an opaque black color. Pretty still with no head. Like motor oil.

S: Boozy chocolate liquor with some bourbon notes and some chocolate covered raisins. Fusel alcohol notes on the finish with some heat.

T: Boozy milk chocolate. Pretty hot. Bourbon with some caramel sweetness. Alcohol notes.

M: Heavy bodied with an oily and slick mouthfeel. Heat on the finsih. Medium low carbonation.

O: Big and boozy as expected. Not as sweet as Chocolate Rain so I liked this a tad more.

2010 bottle: Had this with a few friends for a Christmas party... All I can say is how much hedonism can you fit into a bottle? At least that's what my notes said. Big chocolate syrup notes, dark fruit, coffee and unsweetened cocoa powder. The mouthfeel is silky and immense, It was almost hard to drink between the three of us, at least it would have been if it wasn't so delicious. That being said, this beer is probably the most extreme examples of a stout there can be, and definitely worth picking up and sharing with some good friends.
