Poured into a Duvel tulip. Label says Use By: 01-09-15.

A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 3/4 inch light brown head that retains well before fading to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a large center patch of surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a thick solid ring behind.

S- Heavy dark roast aroma with accompanying notes of molasses, chocolate and a bit of booze.

T- The dark roast hits hard and deep but the chocolaty sweetness that's also there provides a good balance. Additional notes of caramel, vanilla and even some light pecan. The briny-ness from the oysters is only noticed in the aftertaste and sort of rounds out the bitter/sweet duality of the rest of the profile. Pretty drinkable for the ABV

M- Dry, very dry actually and there's a slight chalkiness from the roasted malt. Medium carbonation and a full body.

O- This has been a want of mine for a while only because, when the Exit series was first rolled out years ago, I wanted the Exit 1 entry just to add to my bottle collection because I'm from Delaware. Never found it the first time around and they stopped making it for years. When I heard they were bringing it back on the market, and in 6-packs no less, I had to get my hands on it. Found a sixer when I was visiting home and, come to find out, the beer itself is really good too!

12oz bottle in a standard pint glass. Bottle printed with 01-09-15, assume it was bottled 01-09-14.

A: Pitch black. Small creamy tan-colored head that faded quickly. Lightly lacing on the glass.

S: Milk chocolate, cream, coffee and espresso, roasty malts.

T: Salty flavor with a roasty bitterness of burnt bread and espresso.Hints of dark fruit phenols form the yeast, not dominant or easily distinguished. Lingering coffee as it finishes with a sweet aftertaste of chocolate and fruit. Slightly boozy, too. Did I mention, salty?

M: Medium body, lightly carbonated. Dry finish.

O: Interesting beer. Saltiness, chocolate, roasty bitterness, coffee, even some fruity sweetness. Complex, almost busy flavor profile. Not something I'd be falling down to get again, but I wouldn't turn it down, and would definitely recommend it to a beer connoisseur to add to their repertoire.
