4/5 rDev -1.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Poured into an oversized wine glass. Color was a completely opaque, very dark brown/black color, with a thin light brown head. A bit of side cling with the head, but not much. Strong aroma, seemed to be slighty brown sugar sweet up front, maybe some caramel, with a bit of smoke in the back. Little bit of alcohol present as well. Tasted remarkably like it smelled, slghtly burnt brown sugar, with just a hint of fruit. A bit of bitter booze taste as well. A slighty funny feel in the mouth. Coated very well, but the tongue tingled as if there was a lot of carbonation which there wasn't. Slightly offputting. Overall a solid beer, perhaps aged a bit too long.

3.78/5 rDev -7.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Bottled on 2/22/13. Says its designed to improve with age.
Appearance: Black body with a thin cap of light brown suds. Not quite as dark as some other stouts but definitely looks the part.
Aroma: Rich dark malt and stone fruit. Dried figs. I've got a bit of a head cold so this thing is very quite aromatic for being about a year and a half since it was bottled.
Taste: Starts with nearly sweet dark malt flavor that transitions to a sweet cream flavor. The hops don't add much to the flavor, likely having faded from sitting on the shelf for so long. However, the bitter tones from the dark malt help balance the creamy sweetness. Finish is bitter coffee grinds. Really not tasting much of the 12.5% ABV apart from a burn on the palate in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Very smooth with moderate carbonation. Full in body.
Final Thoughts: This one basically met my expectations. Would have liked to taste a little vanilla or perhaps an oaken-aged version just to spruce it up a bit. The flavor is consistent with many other well known stouts of the style. Definitely a well done beer but nothing special. Would I drink it again? Maybe if it was on nitro-tap.
