A 2005 bottle found in an India deli's refridgerator in NYC. Poured out a Darth Vader black with no head whatsoever. Huge amount of malt in the nose, with even more alcohol. Rasins, sherry, molasses, lots of fun sweet things here. Everything is there in the taste that you get int he nose, but the alcohol isn't particularly apparent. Where do you hide 18% alcohol? Behind a ridiculous amount of barley I guess. I also get some chocolate and coffee, soy sauce, and even a hint of sour cherry. I wouldn't call this an extremely dirnkable beer, it has to be someone who likes this style. Big stouts, barley wines, scotch ales, port and sherry drinkers. But if you like this styles, you will love this beer. Try to let this warm up a bit, as the soy sauce and sour cherry did dissipate and left behind some warmer coffee and espresso.

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!
