22oz bottle poured into Oxbow tulip. Hell & High Water release from the 2011 flood of the old brewpub.

A- Pours a dark black with a nice thick mocha head that fades to a thin layer, nice carbonation level. Looks perfect for being 3 years in e bottle.

S- Dark fruits, hint of molasses, raisins, slight oxidation. Fairly aromatic and holding up well despite the slight oxidation.

T- Molasses, dark fruits, cocoa powder, some light roast, dark chocolate, picked up just a hint of acidity with age but almost no oxidation in the taste.

M- Medium bodied, nice carbonation, very smooth and drinkable.

O- Holding up great for 3 years although probably wouldn't age it much longer. Definitely one of the better non barrel-aged beers I've had and still worth seeking out.
