A: Deep brown, nearly black. Head is half a finger thick, the color of toasted wheat bread. Lacing was minimal.

S: Coffee, chocolate, raisins, and more dark chocolate.

T: Sweet malts married to acrid burnt grain. Dried apricot. Old coffee. Hops? Maybe some bitter-citrus hops notes in the finish as an afterthought.

M: Smooth, lightly carbonated, and creamy. A little alcohol burn. Buttery diacetyl.

O: Not the epitome of the style, but pretty close -- and a great buy at the price. I see myself buying a few more of these soon.

Got a 12oz bottle aged for 3 years from a family member who's friend works for Brooklyn. Needless to say it was a few above the 10.6 ABV rating. Into a tulip, very dark like motor oil, gave a 1/8in dark tan head that quickly dissipated with little to no lacing. Aroma: chocolate, coffee, burnt notes, molasses. Mouth feel was very smooth, very thick but still very drinkable. Tasted of dark chocolate, caramel, little char, the alcohol is noticeable at the finish. Overall I quite enjoyed this brew. I'm going to try it again not aged to see how it compares.

Beer is as says:

Roasted malt, assertive but not aggressive. Chocolate hits you up front. Make sure you warm appropriately as this is where the goods are at with this beer. Even delicious slightly warm. And the roasted malts become more assertive as well. A fresh bottle will reward you with the nice coffee flavor others are talking about as well as some vanilla. I love that the coffee aromas in this particular beer are more on the smooth side for coffee aromas.

It should be reasonably priced wherever you are, as all BB beers are. And I have yet to drink one that does not meet its value. Killer at 10ABV also for the price. Simple but extremely rewarding, straightforward, uncomplicated developed flavors. Delish
