look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A: The beer is jet black in color and poured with a thin dark tan head that died down and left wispy patterns of bubbles on the surface.
S: Light aromas of dark malts and chocolate are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, there are flavors of dark and chocolate malts in the taste.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation. The beer tends to coat your mouth a bit.
O: This beer is quite easy to drink because the alcohol is well hidden from the taste.

Bottle Date: Vintage 2013

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.
