Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip...
The color is solid black like dirty oil, there was a thick chocolate milk colored head that was foamy and clung to the glass.
It smells of rum, chocolate, coffee and cream.
The alcohol bites the back of the tongue, I can taste bitter dark chocolate, and creamy milk chocolate. There is also a hint of wood and a lingering coffee bitterness.
This beer is very thick, and warming and the carbonation is right on point.
I think this would go best with a dessert, a nice "last one of the night" beer. Wouldn't be able to drink to many.

2011 Vintage, poured into a pint glass
A- pours opaque pitch black color with a small creamy dark tan head that eventually reduces to a small layer floating on top, short lasting lace
S- deep, dark chocolate aroma that smells like a fresh fudge brownie, notes or carob & prune with some coffee on the finish
T- dark roasted chocolate up front gives way to a blast of dark fruit with notes of fig, raisin, and even some dark cherry juice, mid-palate continues sweet with brownie flavors and eventually gives a finish of caramel, butterscotch and day old coffee
M- medium-heavy body with moderate carbonation leads to a super creamy mouthfeel and a silky smooth finish, alcohol is hidden very well
O- this bottle was nearly three years old, and it is drinking wonderful. Alcohol is barely detectable and the chocolate and dark fruits have taken over, making it a sweet sipper. If you take the Sam Adams label off of this beer, I guarantee it would be rated higher
