Good bye bells you will be sorely missed, in return hello Brooklyn with a strong start. Purchased this recently available brew at sam's. 
Batch Winter 06-07
I was told not to chill, but I did and then I let it sit out about fifteen, served just below room into a nonic, head rose and fell I will assume its my glass wear (got put in the dishwasher). Head is a dark kaki, gray color, with thin yet sticky lacing. The body is oily mahogany and completely opaque. Smell is robust, with great complex rich malt notes, hints of coffee on the outer edge rounded out by a well blended chocolate, and raison character, non of these are too pervasive, they simply add to a bigger better complex flavor. I get some toasted dark malts with hints of anise and as it warms up it becomes smokey, salty earthy and great, like a delicious piece of bark (if that makes sense). Taste is meaty and chewy, very nice complexity, subtle and hearty blend of taste sensation. IBU is in a very drinkable place, balanced well and aids in the flavor perfectly. I am crazy about this beer especially, because a sixer is about 10 bucks, its delicious and strong. I will definitely by this again.

4.19/5  rDev +1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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.
