2011 vintage, had late 2014.
Dark brown pour, some really nice ruby/mahogany notes when held towards the light. No head, just a really thin beige string.
Nice nut and raisin in the smell, lots of caramel, sweet cake-like malt, dry fig, chocolate, faint cherry, a bit of metal, faint soy sauce, nutmeg, wood chips, brandy. Quite a lot, and pretty fragrant too.
Big fruitiness in the start, tons of raisin, fig, cherry, plum and date, faint blueberry, some apple, some citrus zest, all boozed up with a nice brandy note. Malts follow and overpower, lots of sticky caramel, molasses, toasted malt, light chocolate, spiced with some cinnamon and some walnut. Finishes almost roasted, bitter with some cigar notes, dusty.
Light to medium body, a bit oily, not sticky, low carbonation. Aftertaste: toast, cocoa powder, a bit of raisin, chewing tobacco, faint nut. A bit boozy, especially as you drink more, but the subtle wood note in the taste makes you think of strong red wine or even whiskey, so it's not that bad.
Slow sipper, rich and aggressive in flavors, way over the usual doppelbock stats. Counts as a plus, but also as a minus. Careful with this one.

2011 vintage poured into tulip. A huge thank you to Eric for this one. Thanks TurdFurgison!

A: Pours a deep mahogany color with a thin, active, dark tan head that quickly faded to nothing.
S: Super potent and sweet notes of sticky sweet malts, candied dates, and raisins. Slightly notes of wood, faint oxidization, and slight chocolate and dark spice come through as well.
T: caramel, leather, raisin, and tobacco are easily noticeable. Sticky malt dominates are there is a woody quality to the brew. The finish is full of molasses and slight oxidization, and the aftertaste has a touch a bread crust, spice, and powdery chocolate.
M: Full body, boozy but not hot, low but tingly carbonation, sticky and viscous mouthfeel. A but fizzy and lighter than a equally as boozy stout. Sweet, but the finish is actually pretty drying.
O: A sticky sweet malt bomb that was complex and smooth enough to be interesting, but became a bit of a chore halfway through the bottle. Good for what it is though, thanks again Eric!

12 Fluid Ounce bottle
Served in a pilsner glass
Bottled in 2011

A - It has a ruddy brown body with burnt orange highlights. It is topped with less than an inch of tan head.

S - It has a dark fruit aroma. I get some dates and figs. It smells sweet as well.

T - The taste is all malt. I get some dates and molasses. The alcohol is well hidden. I'm sure 2-3 years has helped that aspect.

M - Medium and smooth.

O - This is a malt bomb. It is high in alcohol and high is sweet malty flavors. I like it. I think is has aged wonderfully and developed into a very good beer.
