This one fell through the cracks back in August, so I'm just adding it now. This review is from memory.

Serving: Bottle into tulip
Served: Sometime early August 2013

This one was a special beer. Dark, dark black with huge roasted malts-- hints of dark, bitter chocolate with a kiss of dark-roasted coffee in there too. A touch of smokiness like you might taste after black, very dark roasted coffee. Marvelously smooth on the palate with a silky mouthfeel. Outstanding beer.

Will have to try again here soon and do a more current review.
