12 oz. brown bottle-limited bottling-winter'05-'06 on neck and main label with a bottling code printed on the bottle: 5279 0221701. Poured into my Chimay chalice a very dark brown with a small cocoa-brown cap.
The smell is sweet and chocolate-like with notes of dark fruit, licorice and coffee. Plenty of alcohol comes through as it warms...smells potent and delicious.
The taste is delicious and rather potent that starts off sweet. Loads of chocolate, prune, fig, molasses, black licorice, oats and wheat, with a big backing of the still present alcohol. Very tasty indeed.
The body is a little thinner than expected, the carbonation is spot on. A good smooth mouthfeel with a nice warming from the high ABV. An excellent RIS that reminds me alot of GI BCS in the taste dept. Another great offering from Brooklyn and a big thanks to Aaron for hooking me up!
