Bottle reads winter 08-09. Poured into the only clean glass I had, a goblet. Black when pouring, black in the glass. Darkish tan creamy head, with light tan around the edge.
A lot going on in the nose. Chocolate, both sweet and bitter, seem to dominate. A small dose of vanilla also. A little toasted scent underneath.
Chocolate in great measure. Milk, dark, and bittersweet. Some vanilla, some caramel. A wonderful roasted flavor underneath. Some light hopping, slightly bitter, and no guess as to the variety. I don't notice any alcohol bite, no fusels, but a pretty good warming in my chest. Once this hits the back end of my tongue, it tastes almost exactly like a moist devil's food cake.
Incredibly smooth, medium long sweet finish. I have 3 more of these delicious beers, thanks to JoeMayo for the trade, and I think I'll save them for a rainy day. To emulate Mr. Oliver, I'll think I'll try and pair this with some food. Perhaps with a chicken with mole sauce from my local Mexican joint, and I'll have another one for dessert! Cheers!
