Poured from a 22oz bottle (Bottled On date of 11/2011) into a snifter glass.

A: The beer is a deep black color, with a thin brown head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains roasted malts, licorice, coffee, chocolate, dark fruit and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of coffee, chocolate, licorice and some dark fruit. Then a very hearty roasted malt character follows. There’s also a touch of smokiness in the background. There is very little hint of the 12.50% ABV. The hops presence is mild as you would expect but brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth but a bit chalky, medium-to-heavy body, light-to-medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Very tasty and complex, goes down dangerously easy, slightly filling, extremely well-disguised very strong kick, very good representation of style. I will disclose that I did not have this beer fresh to draw a comparison. However, at nearly 3-years-old, it does not show any adverse effects of aging at all and shows all of the signs that make this beer one you can age for several more years, if you choose. But drinking it now regardless of age isn’t a bad idea either.

Poured nice and dark, decent lacy though i've seen better. IMO it seemed a little hot, especially for a non-BA beer, though admittedly it only had 5 months on it. I might let it go another 7 at least and try again. Pretty decent for a shelf-beer, but nothing I'd miss if I cant find it again.
