Burnt, bitter, not sweet. This is good, but nothing you haven't had a million times before. Worth a try, but don't hunt down too hard.

Its long been a want of mine and I got to try a 2009 and 2014, side by side. At its core there seems little change only the mellowing of age. The nose is classic stout with char, smokey embers, chocolate malt, oats and coffee.

The flavor delivers that same classic stout but with a nice balanced assertiveness. This has nice coffee, embers, charred oats, chocolate malts, dryness and roast. The feel is not particularly viscous and lightly dry.
