Poured from the bottle into a wine snifter glass. Vintage 2013. Much thanks to the DC bottle share and Jeff?

Out of the bottle it pours like motor oil, a fleeting super dark mocha cocoa head, with a jet black presented body, with a thick appearance.

Bouquet is a bit hot strangely, coming off like bitter hot chocolate, real piping almost. Super dark bitter chocolate notes, only a little bit of slight pepper, red heat chili. Some warmth brings out a little bit of tobacco.

Palate is incredibly easy drinking. Mellow dark bitter chocolate, with faint fruity undertones. Toasty finish and roasting malts almost charcoal. Warmth brings out a big earthy chocolate more so with leafy tobacco hinted on the nose. Mouthfeel comes with a big to moderate slick coating without a syrupy feel. Pepper angle gets lost after numerous sips, but doesn't ruin the enjoyment.

Overall a real fun brew, but some of the bouquet is buried in the mix. It does turn out a fun experience though upon taste. Hope to have this again some day.

2013 vintage...

A: Pours pitch black with a half a finger of dark khaki colored head. The foam settles fairly quickly, leaving only a thin ring of bubbles along the edges of the glass. This beer has serious legs, as it clings and coats the glass. Looks wonderful.

S: The nose is excellent. Sweet vanilla, raisin, chocolate, cinnamon, spice, and mild roast.

T: The taste of this beer follows the nose. It hits the palate sweet and syrupy with malt, raisins, vanilla, and milk chocolate. As it moves to the middle, the cinnamon and peppers make themselves known. The spices dance on the palate adding to the complexity of this brew. The finish is more chocolate and vanilla as the spices fade. Delicious.

M: Full bodied beer. It's sweet and coating, wet and syrupy, and refuses to leave the palate once the beer is gone. Typically I'm not a huge fan of uber-lingering beers, but with a beer this good, it's hard to complain about the lasting flavors.

O: Excellent. I've had this beer a number of times and it never disappoints. The flavors are wonderful, the nose is great, and the mouthfeel is cloying and smooth. I could drink this all day everyday.
