Simply amazing. One of the best beers of my days. Only problems is that it is seasonal. I would drink this year round if possible. At first smell it wins you over. Solid pour - dies down slowly with good lacing. Smells strongly of malts and chocolate with some coffee tones. Taste lingers just right. Full bodied with tons of great flavors. Chocolate/oats/malts to start with a solid coffee finish. Amazing beer. Can not recommend this more.

Bottled 9/23/15 so only ten days old. Poured into a snifter. Deep black color, two fingers of dark head. Coffe aroma right off the bat, chocolate playing backup. Taste the same as it smells. Coffe is dominant, but not overwhelming. No bitterness or acidity from the coffee. Can tell it is a very high quality coffee, so it's dominance is happily welcomed. The fullness from the chocolately malt rounds it out very well. Nice, heavy mouthfeel without being to syrupy. Very clean aftertaste, not one single off flavor. Just a lingering, mouth watering savoryness, making me want more. Definately much better than last years. Possibly due to the freshness of this one. Perhaps the best beer I have ever had. This one is perfect in my book. 5's across the board.
