"Mephistopheles is just beneath. Hes reaching out, to grab me."
This bottle is Batch 3, November 2007. This beer pours a full bodied midnight black in color with a slight khaki lacing. The aromas are smooth and well refined. It features smooth chocolates, a slight roast, mild sweetness, and is just really creamy. I don't detect any of the 16% at all. Great nose for a beer this old. The flavors featured are a lot of roasted malt with a Baltic like sweetness. You get plenty of dark chocolate with some dark fruits as well. There is slight alcohol but not nearly as much as I expected. It's really smooth and drinks very well for its size. It's a nice beer. At four plus years old, it's prime for drinking. It's a really nice, very big stout.

Appearance is a deep dark brown with a finger of tan head that enjoyed some good retention and left nice thick lace behind. Roasted malts abound in both the nose and the flavor profile. The finish is a touch too astringent and puts a damper on an otherwise exceptional offering. There is a slight alcohol presence, but considering the ABV, it is very mild and unobtrusive.

12oz 2011 vintage into a snifter.
dark, thick black pour with a slight beige head. smell is actually quite subdued..slight sweetness perhaps. the taste starts out a tad sweet...and is incredibly smooth. this is almost like a cross between a stout and barleywine. ABV not really apparent either. but you feel it quick. very malty on the finish. dark fruits...big big beer. full bodied. mild carbonation.
overall an interesting and very tasty hybrid beer.
