12oz into a snifter, bottled 11/09/13

Pours pitch black with a finger of mocha colored foam. Good retention and lacing, no carbonation coming up from the sides of the glass

Smells of dark roasted coffee, dark chocolates, some vanilla, dark fruits, toffee, and finishes with some alcohol. Everything comes together pretty well

Taste is with the nose pretty well, strong upfront coffee and dark chocolate along with figs, cherry, and other dark fruits. Vanilla and toffee on the finish, ending with a splash of alcohol

Feel is moderately bitter with a heavy body. Finishes pretty dry, alcohol concealed well but enjoyably present

Overall glad I got to try this. Three more sitting in the cellar
