2012 vintage, courtesy of Axic10 in the Secret Bunny BIF, thanks Alex! (reviewed from notes taken 4/10/2012)
A- pours a deep black with no light penetration. There is a mocha-colored, one-half finger head that rests atop this dark beast. Very little lacing is present.
S- Coffee, dark chocolate, chilis, vanilla, roasted malt, dried dark fruits come through in the background.
T- like a party! Vanilla presents itself immediately and is followed by cocoa. Dark fruit and molasses/brown sugar enter in shortly thereafter. Coffee makes a cameo somewhere in the mix. Finally, chili arrives casually late on the finish. At no point are any of the flavors unaccompanied; each just stands out at a different point.
M- Thick with enough carbonation to break it up just a bit. A coating is left with each sip.
O- I absolutely loved this beer. I would really like to try one of the barrel-aged variants. The complexity is unbelievable. I am glad that I drank this fresh so I have an experience to compare the BA version to if I ever get to try it.
