Bottle shared by Bobby8405. Bob and I appropriately drank this on the observation deck of the St. Petersburg Grand Prix during the live-in-progress Indy Car Race. Pretty dope.
G - Pint glass and Solo cup.
A - It pours jet black with tan foam blanket. Good retention, not so much lace.
S - The smell is of dark and sweet malt, raisin and dark fruit, oxidation, cinnamon and anise, light coffee, and chocolate. Very interesting.
T - The taste is great, with lots of chocolate (not cocoa) and raisin flavors. The malt overtakes any coffee suggested by the nose. It has a vinous quality that is unusual for a stout. Finishes boozy and sweet, like a 7and7. This is an unusual stout; I've not had it fresh so I can't say if it is because of the age, or what.
M - The feel was not tremendously enhancing. It was a wee bit thin, and just didn't feel terribly exciting, if that makes any sense.
D - A very well-crafted brew. Very good for watching live Indy-car races.

Thanks to jfam for this - 2011 edition
Appearance - Dark brown colour with an average size frothy head. I can't make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 5-6 minutes before it was gone.
Smell - Malts, chocolate, grains, coffee, chicory, vanilla
Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, chocolate, and coffee. There is also some vanilla, dark fruit, and chicory.
Overall -What this big beer manages to do very well is - not be cloying. Its got a lot of taste and booze, but not the sweetness that usually accompanies this. A fantastic beer worthy of its acclaim.
