#3 poured into a Libbey Craft Pub glass on 2/28/14.

Bottled Dec. 2011, purchased 2012 at Belmont Station in Portland, brought home to Seattle and consumed in Columbus, OH after moving here over a year ago.

Freaking awesome!!!

Showing the cocoa nib flavors and bitterness with subtle cask aging. Not alcoholic at all! Integrated!

A: Black! with caramel froth. Didn't pay attention to the head.
S: My nose isn't what it could be, so not a lot of anything here. Coffee, roast, dark dried fruit (prunes, raisins?).
T: Roasty, coffee, dark chocolates, caramel, bitterness, but maybe not so much hoppiness.
M: Rich, med-heavy, not alcoholic at all, smooth!
O: I so wish I had lots more of this! Should continue to drink well for more than a year.

consumed with Nirvana Belgian Chocolates Aztec Chocolate

#23 on tap at Stubbys MKE.

Poured into an Epic glass.

Appearance: pours dark, dark with a surprisingly lingering khaki head.

Smell: holy coffee notes, Batman. some chocolate, but this is definitely coffee. No booze notes to mention.

Taste: for something that's 11.5% the alcohol is well masked here. Neither the coffee nor the chocolate are overpowering. It's a pretty nice dance they're doing here.

Mouthfeel: Very clean. Not a strong aftertaste.

Overall: Dangerously sessionable. I have a bottle of this release aging at home. Very excited to see how this turns out.

Serving type: on-tap
