2013

It looks like pouring a black tar into the glass that spawns a thick brown foam.

The nose is creamy, lactose-sweet, with whipped cream, coconut, vanilla, hazelnuts and toffee.

This is nicely complex in flavor with hazelnuts, caramel, toffee, Bit O Honey candies, chocolate and coconut. It ends creamy and fudgey but there's a small phenolic taste that kept this from getting an even higher score.

The feel is very smooth and thick with a touch of alcohol burn.

Great beer! Immense thanks to BeerAlmanac for getting this to me, it's well worth the search.
