Thanks to Adrienne for sharing this one at mrbubbler's "end of the world" tasting.
Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, dark fruits, and alcohol. Taste is much the same with quite an alcohol kick on the finish. There is a mild roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but it's very boozy and needs time to settle down.

bomber thanks to Taylor @ beer study. into a snifter.
Pours a dark black with a nice beige head. The smell is very intense and roasty. chocolate notes too. The taste is BIG and smooth and creamy. There is a bit of smoke there too. Big chocolate and roasty notes and the finish is actually a bit bitter. Oats are definitely prevalent as well. ABV definitely hits you as you get through the glass. Very full bodied with a perfect amount of carbonation.
Overall thoroughly impressed by this one. Liked it a lot.

The newest batch, 2013, bought 3 at bevmo. Will buy them out tomorrow.
Had first batch ... Very good. This 2013 outstanding.
Lovely choco, coffee color. Easy head ... Blows up quick then softens. Smells like coffee. No hint of alcohol, just a bite of chocolate.
Tastes a bare touch of fruit ... Perhaps raspberry?
Perfect with a portobello burger.
Love this beer.
