3.78/5 rDev -3.8%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
I poured a bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance- Black with two fingers worth of foamy and lingering, tan head. Large amount of sticky lacing.
Smell- Aromas of roasted malt and dark fruits with notes of chocolate, toffee, and coffee.
Taste- Roasted malt flavor with a dark fruit and dark chocolate presence. I also detect notes of toffee, licorice, black coffee with some hop bitterness at the finish.
Mouthfeel- Very full bodied and smooth. Low level of carbonation with some warmth from the high ABV. Dry finish.
Overall- A decent R.I.S. but it isn't mind blowing. If I have it again I will try cellaring it first.

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!

4.06/5 rDev +3.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
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.
