Couldn't resist and cracked a bottle from the cellar, after only a couple weeks, lol. I have heard great things so figured I'd try one. Poured from bottle to a NBB globe the beer pours a deep rich opaque black, thick, 1 finger head with solid retention and some lacing. Looks good. The aroma is rich and complex with roasted malts, oak, chocolate, and an alcohol warmth. The flavor builds from the nose with a rich flavor. Begins with a strong coffee and chocolate flavor up front. The roast enters and blends well providing a nice base layer. Hints of dark fruit, oak, and bourbon as well. Very good. Extremely smooth and hides the high abv very well. Finishes creamy with a lingering chocolate roast on the tongue. Very very good. Full bodied and well carbonated. Overall, this beer is fantastic. I can't wait to see how it ages. Highly recommended.
