Big thanks to YumYumGumGum for this bottle in a trade awhile back!

Bottle split and shared with a couple friends during the Packers game on Saturday. Poured my allotment into my Hardywood snifter (also thanks to YumYumGumGum).

Pours a thick, viscous, dirty motor-oil black with a small tan head on top. Fair retention of the foam. Some light sticky globs hang around after each sip. Rich flavorful aromas of chocolate, roasted malts and coffee, bourbon - all enveloped in a sweet scent of fruit. There's something about these big bold stouts/porters when they mix in fruit character that I really dig.

Amazing feel as this viscous beer wraps up the palate in a wash of velvety goodness. Subtle carbonation, heavy feel. This is a sipper for sure. A wonderful treat to close out the night with. Big flavors of dark fruit - plum, fig, raisin. Sweetness pulls through with notes of vanilla, bourbon, brown sugar. Mild roasted quality helps bring this one around and prevents this from becoming a total sweet bomb.

This was a really great beer, and a reminder why this is one of my most anticipated releases each year. Wasn't a fan of the XXIII, so this was a pleasant treat. A wonderful marriage of dark fruits and dark chocolate in the form of a fantastic beer.
