2012 vintage. Served in a crystal snifter.
Deep dark brown, nearly black, very opaque. A low soapy head rises up minimally and settles out flat. Low aroma of ripe dark fruits, lots of fig and plum. Rich and intense flavor of sharp espresso, smoke and leather, a bit ashey and acrid. Some cocoa notes lie beneath and emerge occasionally, but get pushed back down by the sharper flavors. Very flavorful, with lots of nuances. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and slick, but there is a tingly flourish in the finish. Excited to finally have a chance to try this much celebrated beer. I expected a little more from it, but it is a very good beer.
