As far as I know this was the 2005 vintage.
Nightmare black pour with a dense head of mocha froth that fluffs up nicely and holds. Delicate coats of dried lace adorn my goblet.
Aroma is surprisingly dark; uber-smooth malts of the darkest kind, heavily caramelized chocolate, dark sweet coffee and some unexpected dark pit fruit notes.
Flavor melts into your palatte with layers of silky dark chocolate, sweet espresso, Tiramisu, leather, dry wood, and dark stewed fruits. The coffee not as pronounced as when fresh but maddeningly complex and no trace ot the 12% ABV.
Body big, creamy, slippery, and dense. Carbonation steady with pinpoint bubbles and the mouthfeel is like a melted Jamocha shake. Unfortunately we chose this beer as a nightcap and didn't make it to the end of the bottle. I hear that my friend who shared this finished it with his breakfast...my thoughts exactly.
