This is a winter 10-11 vintage.
The appearance is beautiful, I love the look of a chocolate stout, deep black with a brown foamy head with great retention. I love it.
The smell is wonderful, full of dark roasted malts and dark chocolate, reminds me of desert.
The mouthfeel is different than expected, lighter than other stouts I've had, medium thickness. There is a little burn and some carbonation.
The taste is good the dark chocolate is the main taste present which is bitter and good. For a high ABV the alcohol is very well masked. (I'm actually surprised to read another reviewer that no chocolate is used in making this).
Overall this is a great beer to have after eating, I'm going to save a few and see how they taste in a few months or a year but I'm glad I made this purchase. Excellent.

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.
