4.33/5  rDev +8.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

GLASS: Snifter
TEMP: Cellared @ approx 45 degrees

Pours a dense, dark, opaque black. One-finger head of chocolate brown foam. Dissipates to a thin film. Lacing is full, but pretty slippery.

Huge roasted malt notes blend with an inviting booziness. Very bourbon-like scent. Dark fruit notes, almost like a Cabernet Sauvignon. Sweetened dark chocolates, like truffles. Nice brown sugar notes. Light presence of dark roasted coffee.
This is a very dark and wonderful nose.

It's like sweet chocolate milk, with bourbon. Yum!
Milk chocolate covered dark fruits, drizzled with dark chocolate syrup. Similar to notes of a big red wine. Very light traces of dark coffee. Caramel and brown sugar notes. Very good mild oak flavor. Hints of belgian yeast, most notably in hinted flavors of bananas and bubblegum. Dark roasted malts, balanced by the sweetness of candi sugars.
Hints of brandy/cognac are here. Along with a vary similar warming effect. But that's to be expected at over 13%ABV(!).
This is amazingly tasty!

This is a full-bodied brew. Nice and smooth. The carbonation level is a little bit mild, I think. Just a slight boost would make this one super smooth and creamy, which would serve it very well, IMO.

A terrific sipper, to say the least. Such a nice, complex flavor profile. This could be enjoyed for days on end.
Don't be afraid of the dark, or the high abv. This one is super tasty!
Weyerbacher ought to make this a full-time release.

Bottle pour at mrbubbler's tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and char aromas. Taste is much the same with char, dark fruit, and slight soy sauce flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is fairly drinkable but showing definite age at this point.
