Canned December 2009, purchased and poured into a pint glass November 2010.
Appearance - At first pour, this beer is dark and thick. There is an extremely subtle almost-rusty brown hue, behind a veil of motor oil darkness. The lighter color can be seen around the meniscus of the glass, and at the edges when tilted. The head is a lingering high density.
Smell - Initial smell of roast, maybe some dark fruit undertone. While not the most prominent smells, just the first noticed. There is more, but the other notes are harder to distinguish. As it breathes in the glass, the more complex aromas surrender to a stronger boozier scent.
Taste - A slight bitter cocoa flavor hits the palette initially, which evolves mid-taste to include a slight toasty coffee hint. Maybe some caramel?
Mouthfeel - Absolutely amazing, and my favorite part of this beer. As a long time BeerAdvocate lurker, this beer has pushed me over the edge and inspired me to join BA to review. The mouthfeel is the best feature of this beer; it stands out above others in the same category. It feels a tiny bit less viscous than syrupy, and is weighty enough to coat the mouth. If this was a season, it would be early Winter.
Drinkability - Considering the high ABV, this beer is surprisingly pleasant. While this beer's characteristics are strong, as an entire package it does not overwhelm the senses.
