Best before 2015
So I figured I'd give this a try, as I found it at a "good" price of $16 for the bomber. Black, inky, some rim graham foam. Smells initially like booze, then coffee, then almonds, then dark toasted malts, then some vanilla, almond, sugar, hints of amaretto. If the booze wasn't so strong on the nose, then I'd really enjoy the smell of the beer overall. Flavor is alcohol, then dark fruits, more alcohol and some bitterness. Seriously, the alcohol is too much here for 11.5% ABV, brutal. Medium on full bodied with low carb and a tacky, dry finish. I don't get it.

Pours black with a mocha head. Aroma is waaay too alcoholic; strong alcoholic fumes on top of some caramel, wafers, milk chocolate, nutty and a little roasty coffee. Alcohol shows up in the flavor way too strongly along with some caramel, nutty, wafers, chocolate, and a little coffee. Cloyingly sweet and and alcoholic. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy and dead flat. Overall, drain poured my 8 ounces of this, gave the rest of the bomber to my roommate. This one is not for me, won't drink again.

Purchase from Binny's, cracked on April 10th, 2013.
A - Fairly deep snakewood coloring, with a thin, yet fluffy, light brown head. Fair lacing and legs.
S - Predominant lighter-roasted coffee and rye grains.
T - Lactose, milk chocolate powder, dark fruit skins.
M - Very short finish, light-medium body (appearance was misleading here).
D - An absolute waste of $15. The coffee takes over and dampens whatever further complexity there could have (and should have) been. Easily one of the most overrated stouts I've come across.
