3.96/5 rDev -1.5%
2013 bottle, poured into a pint glass
A- pours a nearly opaque jet black color with a small creamy khaki colored head that reduces to a thin film, leaving no lace behind
S- roasted malt aroma gives notes of burnt toast & earthy/herbal coffee, sweet aromas of toffee/dark chocolate kick in mid-palate, dark berries/black currants with a hint of vinous character 3.75
T- sweet up front, with flavors of heavy cream and caramel, also picking up a fruity currant sweetness. Roasty notes kick in with flavors of charcoal, coffee and burnt bread. The finish gives more notes of sweet berry/currant with notes of red wine 4
M- medium-heavy body with moderate carbonation leads to a super creamy mouthfeel and a smooth finish that hides the alcohol very well 4.25
O- nice mix of dark fruit and roasty notes that is incredibly drinkable for 10%, perhaps the age has mellowed it out a bit 4
