750mL served in a duvel glass (denis meyers edition). 2011 Vintage. Thanks to AgentZero for hooking me up with this. Split with Shumania, but we developed our initial opinions separately.
A- pours a deep black, with a dark brown, 1-finger head.
S- dry cocoa, a lot of cherry
T- cherry, a montage of spices throughout, dry cocoa. Chili spice on the back end, but a touch subtle. More cherry. Vanilla is there but is tough to find.
M- cherry lingers...sweet, coats the mouth. Creamy.
O- an excellent beer. Had this without any food, but I suspect this would fare well with a pairing...perhaps some form of spicy chocolate, or a rare steak.
edit: as it warms, getting a lot more chocolate and spice, much less cherry.
