Poured from a 22oz bottle into a snifter, best after 7/23/13. This ours a pitch black color with a large mocha colored head with good retention and leaves a lacing. The smells are fantastic, I can smell the espresso, chocolate and dark roasted malts from 3 feet away as I pour, up close, I get a hint of alcohol, some dark roasted malts, a little pepper. The feel is thick and creamy. The taste is good, there is some definite alcohol heat, beyond that you get some dark creamy roasted malts, a little bitterness, espresso and chocolate, a little age on this one might tame it a hair, but its still exceptional and has enough going on to balance it out.
