2011/2012 Edition into a snifter glass.

The age had definitely helped here as I prefer this aged version to the current release.

Pours silky smooth with perhaps the slightest bit of carbonation lost.

Chocolate and cinnamon on the nose and on the finish with a pleasant aftertaste and not too boozy for the 10% ABV. Highly recommend aging and trying side by side.

A: [4.00] Aggressive pour yielded a 1/2 finger tan head. The bubbles are tight and look nice in the glass. The head settles back to about a 1/4 finger/ The beer is pitch black and looks syrupy when it pours. My decoder ring tells me this was made May 21, 14 (so almost 7 months old). The ABV is listed on the bottle (10.0%)

S: [3.50] Based on the name I expected chocolate up front. I got mostly dark fruits.

T: [4.25] The taste is great. Charcoal, bitter coffee, chocolate. The beer is sweet, despite the bitter coffee.

M: [4.75] This one shines on the mouthfeel. It is creamy and rich. The beer feels like velvet on the tongue. The carbonation feels like nitro carbonation (tiny bubbles).

O: [4.25] This is a really nice beer all around. It lacks chocolate on the nose, but the taste and mouthfeel are great. The mouthfeel is really silky and smooth. It has a great body. This beer is also readily available - which is a plus. The 10% ABV makes it more of a special occasion beer - than an every day beer.
