2010 bottle from Pawel. Batch 10105. Thanks!
A; Black and lightless as a brick. Very dark mocha head that settles in at about an inch. Looks like motor oil.
N: Roasted malt, green hops, dark chocolate, dark cherry, prune. Has a pronounced dark fruit sweetness, particularly that of raisins. Lots of raisins. Truly a smell of dried grapes.
T: Deep rushes of dark chocolate. Leather and bark. Cedar, tobacco, raisins. Smoke and roast. Hops lend an earthy backbone with some leafy hints. Coffee overtones. Superb, and reminiscent of HotD Adam of all things.
M: Thick, coating, yet somehow, supremely drinkable.
O: This is just sublime. Really wise to store it for the extended aging and very much worthy of the high score. Might be my favorite non-BA stout.
