My first review on BA\
Beer is from tap at brewpub on release party night
A: extremely dark with brown head and minimal lacing
R: hot, vanilla, chocolate, slightly fruity
M: big and thick, takes effort to swallow, modestly carbonated
T:dark fruit (prune, raisin), hops (indeterminate - back of tongue), somewhat (alcohol) warm
O: this is an outstanding beer, but sharp around the edges; given a few months or years it might mellow and round allowing the vanilla to manifest as flavor in addition/stead of scent, allowing the fruit flavors to develop and the hop sharpnesses to oxidize into a bit of butteriness.
This is a beer well worth tasting and tastes well worth cellaring.
Serving type: on-tap
