Thanks to jakethesnake9z9z for this bottle.
Pours an opaque black with a thick, medium brown head.
Nose is strong on chocolate with a tinge of coffee.
Taste is also strong on the chocolate. A light touch of coffee comes through, and there is zero roast bitterness. I like the strong chocolate aspects of this beer. The 10% ABV is well hidden.
Mouthfeel is pleasant. Good thickness and carbonation.
Overall, this is a very nice stout. The heavy chocolate aspect without much residual sweetness makes this fairly unique. Would have liked just a touch more roasted malt bitterness.

750mL bottle poured into JK 1st anny snifter - 2010 bottle - I forget who sent this but thanks!
Pitch black, heavy pour with a one-finger crop of darkly tanned head resting on top. Fades slowly, leaving spotty lacing and a collar of film while drinking.
Darkly roasted malts with touches of baker's chocolate, cocoa, anise and boozy warmth. Light suggestions of coffee beans too.
Cascading waves of dark roasty malts and semi-sweet chocolate, followed by cocoa and soft notes of anise. Layered malt backbone with a tempered sweetness and a pleasant boozy warmth. Finishes with chocolate and a bit of coffee.
Full body, decent carbonation, chewy and soft on the tongue. I've tasted this a couple times before, but it was nice to sit down with a full bottle and really enjoy it. I'm bummed this has been 'permanently' replaced by the farmhouse version.

A: pours black as night and thick like well used motor oil with a quarter inch of dark tan head that fades slowly in a DFH snifter
S: smells of bitter dark chocolate, roast malt, coffee and charred wood
T: chocolate, roast malt, coffee, anise and a slight sweetness, slight char and burnt sugar. swallow is more chocolate and coffee with a bit of warming alcohol on the back end
M: big and thick in the mouth with soft and smooth carb that leads to a silky mouthfeel. finish is a touch dry but doesn't linger
O: Very impressive and quite good. very smooth flavors and good complexity. drinks pretty easy as well. I'm curious what the farmhouse version is like
