Thanks to Oneinchaway for sharing this one at his tasting.

2011 vintage. Bottle # 191/392.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa powder, dark fruit, and brandy aromas. Taste is much the same with chocolate syrup, dark fruit, and brandy flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with great fruit and brand barrel aged characteristics that are slightly better in the smell to me.

Serving type: bottle.
