Been sitting on this bottle for a while now, tonight seemed like the right night. Had it fresh and this one held onto since they went farms house on it...enjoyed from that jester king zwanze tulip.

a - brew pours a deep lush black with a nice dark brown cap that eventually dissolves down to a thin skin. Lacing is slippery and doesn't cling much.

s - nose is faded chocolate with some soft roast notes. Not really much to it. Very subdued. Little burnt.

t - comes alive on the first sip. Nice chocolate and roasted coffee. I had remembered this being a roast bomb but this is nice. Roast is still fairly aggressive but the oxidation puts the chocolate in a mellow place that sits right with the roast...and lends to some dark fruit sweetness which is really nice.

m - fairly soft and light. Easy drinker, almost thin even. Abc is invisible.

o - this beer is in a great place right now. Very enjoyable. Drink them if you got them!
