On Tap at Miller Tech Center (9-26-07), 11.3% ABV. Pitch black color, frothy amber-brown head. Aroma is a wonderful blend of roast, spice, chocolate, light coffee and a touch of vanilla. Flavor is raisony sweetness, vanilla, spice, roast and light chocolate. Medium to full bodied. The finish warms the insides as it goes down. Another great Big Eddy beer.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle marked 31113, 2012 vintage
Bottle at 45 degrees into snifter
Aroma of roasted malt, dates, and figs
Head small (2 cm), light brown, creamy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm ring and 1 mm layer with small bubble islands
Lacing good – complete rings of tiny bubbles
Body dark brown, opaque
Flavor sweet, intense dates and figs with roasted malt; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate full, creamy, soft carbonation
This is worlds better than when it came out in 2012 – the rough edges have smoothed well.
