A viscous black pour floating a solid chocolate milk colored head, amazing retention, with thick lacing in my glass from start to finish. Aroma of dark chocolate, tobacco, leather, a bit of smoke in there too. Big flavors of tobacco up front, giving way to bitter dark chocolate, figs, berries and burnt wood - the high ABV is hidden well - especially after 2 years of sitting under my house. The body is big and warming from the high ABV, with a dry mouthfeel and finish. Overall amazing sipper and a solid representation of the style.

Beer #999 for me. Poured from a bomber into an enlarged snifter. This was bottled November 6, 2012 so almost 2 years ago.

Appearance: Pours thick and black and leaves a finger of brown head that fades relatively quickly to a brown rim around the glass. (4.5)

Smell: Roasted malts, dark chocolate, licorice, char, some must, hint of figs and plums. (4.25)

Taste: Big roasted malts, dark/milk chocolate, licorice, charred malts, some smoke. Big charry, slightly ashy finish. (4)

Mouth-feel: Low carbonation (but definitely present) with a medium to thick, creamy body. Nice feel. (4.5)

Overall: Big roasty flavors and aromas along with a bit of ashyness which is interesting. Nice full body and the alcohol is masked well at 12%. (4)

bottled 11/6/12

a - poured a one finger thick creamy tan head into a tulip glass that settled into a thin ring. the body was dark black.
s - chocolate, some coffee with a slight alcohol burn.
t - roasted coffee, chocolate, some dark fruits, alcohol burn.
m - kind of flat and thin.
o - i had high hopes for this but the carbonation level really took away from a promising beer. the heat went well with the beer.
