4.03/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass

A-dark brown with about a 1 finger head that leaves some lacingas it fades

S-roasted malt, dark fruit, and a little licorice

T-much like the smell with some earthy hops to balance out the finish

M-creamy medium bodied

O-pretty solid all around, I let this age gor about 6 months and I think that it helped it out, I tried one when I first picked up the 6 pack and definitely prefer the aged one

4.3/5  rDev +12.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

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.
