this bottle is probably a good two and a half to three years old
A: poured into a snifter to a deep black with a two finger dense tan head that is slow to fade and leaves decent lacing
S: smells of sweet chocolate, coffee, and toasted marshmallows
T: taste is bittersweet chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and kind of peppery and spicy yeast. swallow is more coffee and chocolate with some charred wood. hints of oxidation but not terrible
M: this beer is surprisingly light on the palate due to some pretty prickly carb. the finish is
O: It looks like they didn't use an oxygen fixing cap but the beer is pretty solid. a bit too heavy on the carbonation but the flavors are there. the farmhouse yeast does some interesting things but it doesn't overshadow the rest of the beer.

Bottle purchased at World of Beer in Tioga. Pours pitch black and thick with a massive dark brown head into my tulip glass. Aromas of roasty dark malts, some chocolate, light hops, but an interesting light grass introduced to the smell that I assume is the farmhouse yeast influence. I must say, though, that this influence is extremely subdued. Flavor follows the smell nearly perfectly with sweet chocolate balanced by slightly bitter roast flavor and a hint of anise. The farmhouse claim doesn't come through to much in he flavor but maybe makes things more drinkable. Mouthfeel is thick and rich but not overbearing with plenty if carbonation to make this full bodied and silky on the tongue. A really nice beer to be honest. Would have again for sure.
