A: Pours nearly black, with ruby reddish hues.
S: Aroma is of rich, sticky, molasses. Baked beans maybe. Slightly spicy and floral undertones also.
T&M: Ultra smooth on the palate, full-bodied, and creamy. Chewy malt flavors are bold with a strong chocolatey presence, mild espresso, some tangy molasses, and toffee candy. Alcohol is quite warming and hot, producing a bit of a rummy sensation that's both sweet and peppery. Finish is dry, with a licorice taste.
Very thick, but not very stoutish. It is veavy like syrup and definitely a good sipper.
Serving type: on-tap

2011 vintage. Poured on tap and served in a snifter, the beer is jet black, with subtle ruby highlights, and a dense, foamy, dark tan head. Aromas of coffee and booze forward, with old world fruit sweetness, woody notes, and an underlying coffee bitterness. Beast. Flavors are a blast of rich sweetness on the tongue, with black strap molasses leading the charge, followed by cocoa nibs, bitter coffee, vanilla, oak spice, and a ribbon of booze. Holy hell, this is big! Smooth and velvety in mouth, with a rich, darkly sweet aftertaste of molasses and brown sugar. Slick, smooth finish. Wow...this is a greay beer!

Appearance: It has a nice jet black color to it. It has a nice creamy tan head that dies down moderately slow and leaves some nice lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, coffee and some dark fruit (mainly raisins).
Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some sweet roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, a slight nuttiness, vanilla and raisins.
Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas.
Serving type: bottle
