650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled 6/6/2013.

Appearance - Black body. Small khaki head. Reddish tint at the edge.

Smell - Oh my. Fudge. The slightest hint of a rich red wine. Blends with the chocolate. Graham cracker.

Taste - Sharper red wine. Allows more pepper to come through. Less fudgy. Oaky with that graham cracker finish.

Mouthfeel - Sharp pepper. Slight acidity to the red wine. Heavy beer.

Overall - Not quite the beer that JD Cake is. Having Apple Brandy next.

Had to write a quick review as this is the closest thing to a 5 I have had, in fact it is a 5 in every way. Half finger tan head on a jet black body with nice lacing. Aroma of red wine, some peppery heat, dark chocolate and oak. Flavor of cocoa, vanilla, oak and wine with perfect degree of heat. This one is actually perfect. Complex, all elements are at perfect levels and there isn't anything else like it. Full body and light to moderate carbonation. My first 5.
