- 12.5% bot. 2013. consumed 9/14 @ recommended 55F serving temp in a duvel glass.

(4.10) A: Auburn-chocolate pour is thick and viscose on the exit producing a billowing tan head 3+ inches tall. Good retention rate with a milky cream texture with an equally impressive lace coverage that smothers the vessel. Micro-effervesce is light along the edges.

(4.25) S: Aroma of dark rum raisin upon immediate uncorking, with sweet dark fruit liquor (figs and plums). Rich chocolate oak notes with burnt molasses sweetness blends beautifully with a smooth silky coffee roast. The alcohol is fairly reserved for 12.5% aromatic wise with a nice smoothing complexity that flows very well and a good level of awareness.

(4.30) T: The flavor starts off with big alcohol notes, dark fruit, sweet figs and plums following the nose, blending with a whiskey-chocolate combination making a big first impression. Dark raisin, with an earthy bittering finish with some lingering whiskey. The flavor is very polished, eloquent and refined.

(4.15) M: Medium milky body, with a light mention of carbonation. Nice chocolate-alcohol warmth with a slippery smooth texture that just slides off the tongue.

(4.25) O: a world class offering, solid A rating. A bit pricey at $18 spent on a 12 oz but worth the unique experience. Sticky, syrupy, oaky goodness in a bottle with a lingering after-effect of alcohol deep in the belly long after the swallow. Definitely one of the better BA stouts, but its no BCBS by comparison.
