This is a dark, beautiful beer, with a cappuccino head that disappears pretty quickly. Smells like burnt crystal malt, and has an alcohol twang. I get a rush of caramel, espresso, dark chocolate, and that smelt roasted malt doesnt leave the palate immediately, in fact, it lingers like how a well written song dancing in the recesses of your mind. Im going to let 2 of these age for a while and see if they get better over time. This is winter 08-09 in 12 oz bottles picked up in Brooklyn. Wonderful mouthfeel, and doesnt really have that alcohol kick that some beers at 10.6 have. wonderful example of the style.

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.
