Review is for cellaring purposes, but its still a review of fresh BCS!

11 batch poured into a GL snifter.

Pours a pitch black. Like no light passes through even when help up to the light. Very thick caramel head that stays around.

It smells like an unflavored RIS. Roasted oats are everywhere mixed with booze and smoothness probably from the oats. Not overly impressive, but not bad.

Well I mean, I guess they call it Black Chocolate Stout for a reason. Milk chocolate isnt there; it's all dark bitter chocolate. After all the breakfast stouts I've had recently, the dark chocolate is kind of refreshing. Just like every previous time, it's still hot. The booze is a touch too much for me; after subsequent yearly reviews, maybe the booze will mellow out (hopefully).

A serious candidate for Bourbon-barrel aging. It could use that finishing touch of smoothness. It just feels a tad too rough around the edges.

It leaves a roasted feeling from the malt and bitter chocolate. It has a nutty feeling, that really isn't all that displeasing.

**UPDATE**
4 months has lightened the body, mellowed the booze, and brought out the belgian black chocolate. overall, a very good beer.
