look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

22oz bottle (Batch 10, bottled November 2010) into a snifter. Pours a dark cola brown w/ a 1-finger mocha head that settles to a thin film w/ a collar.

Aroma is dark and roasty, bitter, earthy, nutty. Chocolate, molasses, dark fruit, a hint of alcohol.

Taste is equal parts malty sweet and sharply bitter. More molasses and dark fruit on the palate. Chocolate and caramel.

Mouthfeel is velvety smooth and just sticky enough. Finishes moderately dry.

Overall a solid offering. Perhaps lacks complexity, but it's drinkable and enjoyable.
