355ml bottle. The most recent release - winter 2008/2009, a nice potential prep for tonight's New Year's festivities.

This beer pours an opaque black hole, with ever so slight trapped cola edges and one fat finger of light brown head, which leaves some nicely threatening storm front lace around the glass as it slowly recedes.

It smells strongly of semi-sweet baker's chocolate, roasted caramel malt, toffee pudding, weak coffee, a soft musty hoppiness, and bristling alcohol - a lot like those boozy chocolates at one's family gatherings this time of year. The taste is bittersweet gritty chocolate, toasted bready caramel malt, salty toffee, black coffee, a not so strange perception of boozy wood, more musty leafy hops, and a sidling alcohol warmth.

The carbonation is quite low, but not so sedate as to shirk its structural duties, which include, amongst others, contributing to the generally smooth and creamy mouthfeel. It finishes fairly sweet, the chocolate, malt, and alcohol all mixing and matching, simmering, yet nothing is overwhelming.

A very tasty strong stout, but not one for cycling through the four pack in one sitting. The chocolate is deftly rendered as well, so this is also a stellar accompaniment to any of my Mom's care package of Christmas confections.
