Nice red wine color upon pouring. Taste is very sweet and sticky. Very complex but i mostly get dark fruits, raisins, figs, and prunes. Its too sweet and almost cloying. Also the mouthfeel is too much, too thick. Very greatful i got to try this but this thing needs at least a year on it. No alcohol burn which is impressive but far from my fav stout.

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.
