2013 Vintage corked and caged 750 ml bottle grabbed off the shelves on my visit to Hoboken. Pours pitch black with a massive dark brown head that lingers a good while. Big chocolate and roast aromas, some dark fruits, and some smoke and char. Flavor is big smoke and char, more char, roastC some chocolate covered raisins, then a bitter smokey finish. Not what I was expecting but a nice surprise. Medium bodied with low plus carbonation. Sweetens up as I go. Not bad.

A-Black in the glass one finger white head with some lacing.

S-Very roasty, burnt malt, raisins, slight chocolate.

T-Starts with lots of burnt and roasted malt. Raisins, slight vanilla, mild dark chocolate.

M-Medium to heavy, nice carbonation and rather creamy.

O-A solid stout, more on the burnt side but it was not a detraction.

This poured gorgeously with a deep black thickness, a lasting brown head and a sheet of thick lacing.

The nose was a dry chocolate, smoke and a phenolic plastic aroma.

This tastes creamy but feels dry. The chocolate is dry and the stout character resembles an Irish Stout but I get a milky creamy lactose as well. It then gets a little chalky with cocoa powder and embers but finishes with an Irish creme.

I'm a bit lost on this whole experience as it presents itself with a near schizophrenic personality. I liked it than didn't, loved it than hated it.
