4.45/5 rDev +3.5%
2011 obtained during a trade.
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a New Belgium (like the last review) balloon Glass
Pour - Very thick almost syrupy liquid, with a dark mocha colored head that dissipated rather quickly, leaving loose lacing and slight wine like legs.
Smell - Sweet hints of vanilla and almost Scotch scent. lots of cocoa and coffee. Smells boozy. Overall sweet scent.
Taste - Coffee and Cocoa up front with a nice roasted flavor. The malts were roasted very nicely on this. Light smokiness on the tail end of this one, and a little boozy.
Mouth - Very rich and creamy, almost chocolate milk texture. Carbonated perfectly, not too much not too little.
Very nice double, great for when eating ice cream or after dinner for dessert in itself.

Vintage 2011 12oz bottle poured into a New Belgium globe glass.
Appearance - Solid black body with a half inch, dark brown head
Smell - Very strong coffee and not much else
Taste - Good coffee flavor is right up front and dominant with a woody, roasted malt and a hint of chocolate to finish. Hides the alcohol very well.
Mouthfeel - Creamy and smooth with just the right amount of carbonation.
Overall - My favorite so far of the style. Rich aromas and tastes but still light enough that you're not full afterward. I don't consider myself a stout guy, but I could enjoy this regularly. Its really a shame its a limited release.

4.25/5 rDev -1.2%
A: Thick, viscous, and virtually black. Forms a small dark brown colored head - one of the darkest heads I've seen on a beer - that slowly reduces to a thin surface coating and a small ring around the edge. Leaves some light lacing.
S: Smell is strongly of dark chocolate. Heavily roasted malts, char, a hint of vanilla, and a passing whiff of smoke.
T: Tastes of heavily roasted malts, dark chocolate, and espresso, with lighter notes of smoke, char, and cola. Mild sweetness.
M: Heavy body. Thick and viscous with a smooth mouthfeel to balance out the roasted malt bitterness. Lower carbonation.
O: A very nice beer with a lot going on, but the balance is still there, making this for an enjoyable sipper on a chilly autumn evening.

Bottle poured into a HF tulip
A - Dark, almost black, brown with a light, mocha colored brown head.
S - Strong coffee presence over top of a caramel and oatmeal stout presence. Great and strong nose
T - Strong coffee with a nice caramel flavor. The finish is slightly vegetal and almost cigarette smokiness that lingers on in the finish.
MF - medium carbonation and body with a silky smooth body
O - Great smelling coffee beer. Originally, the beer has a great taste but the finish kind of puts it off for me.
