A '12 vintage.

A world class example of the style. It gathers the dark fruit (cherries, dates) and gentle balanced hop qualities of Darkness, but along with a thicket chocolate and roast quality of something like Founders Imperial and Ten Fidy.

The beer drinks above its ABV with a medium plus to full mouthfeel.

From bottle.
Pours near black and opaque.
Robust dark malt flavor but as sweet as many a milk stout. Lingering flavor of dark roasted malts with little burnt quality.
