4.58/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into a Duvel tulip. Batch one. Here we go, kids...

A- pours jet black with a three finger dark, dark brown head that quickly fades. My god, if the head stuck around for more than a few seconds, it would be the most beautiful beer I've ever seen in my life.

S- chocolate, vanilla, a little bit of heat...not bad, though the aromas are a little muted after nearly three years

T- the vanilla and cacao is still there, and creates a hell of a luscious, sweet, well-balanced beer with absolutely no heat. Dear lord. And actually, I'm getting some heat in the finish. Awesome

M- you can cut this one with a knife, but it better be pretty damn sharp. Motor oil!

O- this one is worth the hype. It aged fine, though I think fresh it could be amazing

4.8/5  rDev +5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 5

750ml bottle poured into Spiegelau tulip.
2013 vintage.

A: Pours inky black with a finger of mocha-brown head.

S: Roasted coffee, molasses, vanilla, caramel, black licorice, and some booze.

T: Follows the nose. Roasted coffee, cinnamon, black licorice, molasses, vanilla, and a slight underlying tartness. Moderately sweet and smokey.

M: A nice thick, sticky body with almost no carbonation. Coats the mouth.

O: Nothing short of incredible. Could possibly be the best non-BA stout I've had. Great all around complexity and the sweetness is just perfect. The cinnamon is a nice addition, but I didn't notice any chile pepper. Overall very drinkable for a big stout.
