Truly spectacular beer. Poured a deep black with a touch khaki head: exactly what you would expect from a heavy stout. Aroma is sweet and heavy: Brown sugar, molasses, cocoa, fig, vanilla, bourbon. Doesn't really have some of the roastier notes or coffee that some serious stouts do but I'm ok with it. Taste is full bore sweet and rich. Tons of vanilla and fig, chocolate and cherry. Very very sweet, a bit too much if I'm honest. Feel is rich and smooth. Light carbonation. Overall a treat, definitely a slow drinker.

2011 vintage

a - poured a 1/2 finger thick tan head into a snifter that dissipated quickly. the body was dark black with some reddish edges.
s - big dark fruit aromas with some sweetness and oak.
t - fruit, chocolate, toffee, vanilla, oak, bourbon, brandy. you name it this beer has it. so complex and inviting yet incredibly drinkable.
m - medium with a little carbonation, more so than a lot of lost abbey beers which is a good thing here.
o - one of the best beers i've had in a long time.
