I know this says do not age ... but I did.
Aged in the beer fridge for a year.
Oily, thick pour with 1 finger of dark cream head. Decent lace on a tulip and a thin sheen of retention.
Nose is just wonderful. Chocolate, a bit of dark fruit, coffee/toffee touch, and then light pepper. Even after a year.
The pepper mutes out after a year, but that is not a bad thing. Becomes more complimentary. Lots of chocolate/toffee up front with a dose of dark coffee. Then the pepper kicks in, ever so respectful of the remaining tastes. This is really well done.
Feel is just about right. Not nearly as thick as expected.
Overall, a homerun.
