I poured this beer into my tulip glass. There was minimal foam that went away really quickly. This beer is extremely dark.
Off the top I get sticky, sweet aroma. You can smell toffee and coffee. This beer is extremely rich smelling (which explains how I sipped this for an 80 minute documentary).
The flavors really coat my mouth. The thick/viscous ale really stands out. You get a ton of alcohol quality to this one. The strength stands out in each sip.
I know this beer is expensive, but I think it is well worth it. This sipper will last through three pale or IPA pours. I recommend picking up two bottles and aging one. This beer will only get better with age.

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.
