Thanks to Raylove for this bottle.

2011 vintage.

After scraping the wax off with a fork I poured the beer in a stone vertical glass.

It appears all but black with a small espresso colored head that dissipates quickly.

It smells of caramelized sugar, roasted malts, mild coffee and mild chocolate. I also get a bit of a sweet dry dark fruit smell.

It tastes of rich sweet milk chocolate. I get a mild sweet coffee flavor and a rich dry fruit flavor. I get a bit of a prune flavor. Overall the beer is on the sweet side but there are plenty of flavors interacting with each other. It is very rich yet very smooth.

This is one thick crude oil textured stout. It is thick. There is a low carbonation as well.

Overall though this beer might have a bit too much hype and might be a bit overpriced it is a great beer. It is thick, strong, yet smooth and drinkable.

Looking forward to ageing my last bottle of this.
