Bottle from 2010 poured into a tasting snifter.
I brought this beer with me to a tasting w/ label removed as a "surprise beer"... however, it didn't look too stout-y to me either. Dark brown at best w/ predictably no head.
Aroma is what people have said over and over: nail polish remover and roast. When cold (or with an unaccustomed nose?), the beer is overpoweringly acetone like but partially transitions to its roasty side in time. Taste follows the nose with notes of solvents, coffee and roast.
Perhaps because of its high alcohol, this beer doesn't seem very thick. Compared to alcoholic beverages of similar strength (port), the body is medium at best. Overall it's not bad and much more bearable later on. I have heard good things about this with age... I hope to luck into a bottle someday. But I sure am not buying this at ~10 dollars. For less than twice the price per oz., Black Tuesday is an infinitely better example of an extreme stout. This one was... weird.

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!
