Dark black brew, opaque, nearly purple-hued. Solid, 1 1/4 finger dark tan head; firm, excellent retention, nice solid lacing. Beautiful.
Boozy and fruity aroma, strong on red grapes, cream, and barley. Not very roasty; just a hint of cocoa at slightly-above-refrigerator temperature.
Creamy and slightly sweet flavor, similar to the nose: chewing on barley, some cream, dark fruit (grapes), light booze flavor (alcohol evaporation). Again, very little roast, some earthy hops (but not a ton), and chocolate, while present, isn't the main flavor - although more chocolate comes out as it warms. Very nice.
Unbelievably thick and chewy mouthfeel, even when colder than ideal. Simply unreal. Super thick. A little warm, but the hints of alcohol in no way betray the massive 18% ABV; could easily pass for 10%. Slick, coats the mouth.
Wow, this beer deserves the hype. More potent and complex than any BA stout I've had, and exquisitely crafted.

2011 vintage poured into a snifter
A- very dark with a porous tan 1/2 inch head
S- near perfect- chocolate, molasses, dark fruits dominate
T- taste matches the nose and so smooth...being a 2011 vintage definitely benefited the smoothness of this beer...still, this beer is nearly 20 percent and youd never guess...good achievement by DFH
M- thick and chewy...very very good, just what i like
O- i paid 15 dollars for this 3 year old vintage single bottle....should you pay that much for it? absolutely not...but IMO it is the best DFH beer brewed and one of the better stouts out there especially considering it isnt barrel aged and it is nearly 20 percent...quite an achievement!
