A 12 ounce bottle of the Winter 2011-2012 batch that was sent by JM03; thank you for this "Want!" Poured into a DFH signature glass.
Pours black with a thin veil of tan/light brown head; a good amount of lacing remains behind, and nice legs course through the surface of the liquid. The aroma is of chocolate, cocoa, caramel, a hint of vanilla, cane sugar, and a touch of coffee. A roasted note is present throughout. It tastes of dark chocolate, faint vanilla, a touch of caramel, roasted coffee grounds, cane sugar, and some muddled grains. The chocolate rush up front is delicious, and throughout the sip this one does not disappoint. Mouthfeel is slightly thinner than expected, but that only adds to the drinkability. Finishes surprisingly clean, and ample carbonation keeps the otherwise syrupy texture lifted nicely off the tongue. Overall, a very good stout that I really wish I had local access to. Would certainly love some more of this one!

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.
