22oz bottle poured into a large snifter. Date of bottling 11/28/11 puts this at almost two years old.

A: Pitch black on the pour. Sandy brown head sputters out after a short moment, but can be revived by agitating the glass with a steady swirl. No real lacing to speak of, just a tiny spot here and there,

S: Loads of bittersweet chocolate, fudgey and chocolatey malts, dark chocolate truffles, and a slight oily hop scent. Perhaps some dark berry esters at the core. Very chocolate-forward and enticing.

T: A boatload of chocolate. Fudge, truffles, bittersweet dark chocolate, chocolate syrup. Slight mocha impression, hint of smoke. Berry esters come out briefly toward the middle. Roasted malts begin to come forward with some flavors of soot and char. Hops add bitterness and perhaps a hint of a 'green' taste. Barely a hint of alcohol. Finishes with a long and decadent syrupy and truffle chocolate taste.

M: Thick in body. Oily and chewy, slightly viscous and coating. Creamy. Low carbonation. Decadent again.

O: A wonderful dessert beer. It would do fine on its own, but when pairing one needs to go big. This is chocolate on top of chocolate, with a brawny body beneath. Cheesecake with lots of fruit and fruit sauce, I think. This is my favorite of the blackwater series to date, and it aged like a dream too.
