look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Bottle Date: Vintage 2013
Opened: July 2014

This one had a tough cork to pull, but once I got that open with a large pop, the cork was very wet and sticky, even though this had been stored upright for the last year or so.

A: There was an aggressive pour which resulted in a 3 finger tan head with various sized bubbles. The head receded very slowly to a sort of thick film which left nice lacing. I believe that this is black, but it could be very dark brown.

S: The nose was ok, but doesn't compare to the taste. There was some chocolate, some bitterness, some roast. I get a little oak, or woodiness. There is a dash of a sharp anise type smell.

T: Smooth, creamy, chocolate. A brief prickliness from the carbonation. Much more dark chocolate comes through than the nose in a luxurious, velvety way. It is similar to the nose, but the taste was much more intense. There is no alcohol.

MF: In addition to the above, it was creamy and silky. Quite nice.

O: Very nice and very enjoyable with about a year on it.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at the brewery in San Marcos.

Pours black with a short-lived head that leaves little lacing.

Aroma: moderately strong and dominated by dark-roasted malts.

Flavor: more funky and less fruity than the aroma, but not challenging to drink. Lightly bitter finish.

Feel: medium body; medium-light carbonation.

O: good, not great. High ABV is too obvious.

Serving type: on-tap
