2014 bottle poured into a snifter.
A: Deep black, impenetrable to light, essentially no head and the most minimal of lacing.
S: Incredible mixtures of dark fruit esters; raisins, plums, dates, dark cherry, even currant. Rich roasted malt and molasses. Alcohol is present but relatively well masked given the "absurd" amount of it.
T: Follows the nose, but much more bold on the booze. Like a good play, 3 acts. The attack is all dark fruits as above, taste is a little more heavy on raisin. The mid-palate is a very balanced roasted malt with caramel sweetness, and the finish is all booze released by a rising carbonation.
M: A little warm and boozy and surprisingly thin and porter-like for the absolute wealth of malt. The carbonation is perfect and aids in the release of lots of flavor.
O: Probably one of my favorite stouts, the yeast character is incredibly complex, (reminds me of a belgian quad) and it drinks like a jet fueled barley wine. Laying my second bottle down for a a year - or two; to mellow it out.
