My second out of 4-pack of 2011 Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout.
One year on it. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into my large snifter.
Very thick, dark brown colored pour. Pitch black inside the glass. Dark and opaque. A shining brown colored fluffy one finger thick head that slowly dissipates into a thin shining ring. Awesome lacing. Bubbles not to be seen.
Aroma: Toned down alcohol, i would assume. Well mixed with dark roasted malts and chocolate aroma. Very slight caramel. Some hop-alcohol mixed nose that is typical of Russian Imperial Stouts.
Taste: Roasted malts and dark chocolate taste. Some slight bitterness, that i would assume is subdued due to age on this one. Sweet-bitter dry finish. Alcohol is not felt as much as it contains. Less of burnt up malt flavor.
Mouth feel: Full bodied yet very drinkable thinness feel. Moderate carbonation. Slight alcohol derived astringency.
One more brew that makes Russian Imperial Stouts so reputable and likable.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into KBS snifter, bottled in 2013. Bottle stored in cellar then briefly refrigerated prior to opening. Pours a beautiful jet black and forms a two inch foamy head that's beige in color. The head ultimately settles into a thin ring around the glass.
The nose is French roast coffee and milk chocolate, quite inviting. There's also a strong roasted malt aroma, followed by a spicy presence that hints of nutmeg. The taste is quite similar to its nose, bitter mocha, sweet molasses and roasted malt, fudge and spicy (chile ancho and nutmeg).
The mouthfeel of this beer is quite pleasant, almost no carbonation present which in my opinion helps savour the beer even better.
Overall - very excited to discover this beer, its quite enjoyable and hides the 10% ABV extremely well. Its sweet yet no overwhelmingly so and all of its flavors are well balanced.
