2011 bottle opened in 2013

A - Bowling ball black with dark muddy highlights. Creamy milk chocolate head with ok retention and lace. Classic Mikkeller.

S - Holy crap. Ancho chilies, peat smoke, milk chocolate, molasses, salt, warm scotch, touch of oak, and mission figs. Nice complexity and great integration.

T - Dry dark chocolate, fresh oak, salt, raisiny chipotle peppers, pumpernickel bread, touch of smoke, cocoa nibs, sharp ginger, dusty char.

M - Milky, medium body. Nice dry, lingering finish.

O - Drinking great 2 years after bottling. While not a heat bomb, the chili pepper plays a starring role in an extremely well balanced profile.
