Thanks to black13 for bringing this to a tasting. Shared with black13, tulipsnifter, hopsbreath, chaset, and ramnuts.
Vintage 2010

Appearance- Black with a chocolate head that sticks around for a min then dissipated to a ring. This is the darkest head I have ever seen.

Smell- Chocolate and some chilies are prominent.

Taste- Very smooth. Lots of chocolate and the smallest hint of chilies. Very good. Some vanilla in the background.

Mouthfeel- Very thick. I am surprised that the head sticks around as much as it does. Coats the glass quite a lot.

Overall- Damn this is a good beer. I usually do not like chilies, in beer or anywhere else. This would be an exception. Small chili presence and it works well.

Micheal also brought a 2011 version which I liked a lot better. All of the flavors were much sharper. Much more complex and interesting. The actual numbers reflect the 2011 version.
