4.38/5 rDev +2.3%
had a 2012 bottle on my birthday last year shortly after dark lord day. pours black and quite viscous. aroma of charred fruits, chocolate, and subtle coffee. the flavor hits you with massive sweetness but a velvety texture that coats your mouth and is slightly balanced with some mild bitter coffee notes throughout. very complex. definitely reminds me of a port wine. you really need to be able to enjoy sweentess if you are going to like/appreciate this one. i loved it.

4.1/5 rDev -4.2%
2011 Vintage (Yellow Wax)
Appearance: Very dark brown bordering on black with a small beige head. Good looking beer.
Smell: Brown sugar, cherries, chocolate and a coffee/roasted malt aroma. Nice nose on this one.
Taste: Brown sugar, cherries, chocolate and mild coffee/roasted malt notes. The finish is fairly sweet, even after 2 years of aging.
Mouth-feel: Full-bodied with a moderate level of carbonation appropriate tor the style. Great mouth-feel for the style.
Overall: No doubt it's sweet as many have said but there is enough going on in the taste profile to make it a good beer.
