Shared from a 750mL, thanks Tom for sharing this.

Pours a deep brown, nearly black body with a small brown head that reduces to nothing.

Aromas are boozy but inviting, cocoa and dark chocolate, dark fruits, chocolate liquor. Taste is rich, so much flavor here with fudge, rich chocolate cake, chocolate liquor, boozy dark fruits, finishing lightly bitter. Mouthfeel is rich and thick, low carbonation.

2015 bottle poured at a share last night. Beer pours dark brown in color. Not completely opaque. Small mocha head forms and dissipates quickly, probably running from the 20.5% abv (haha). Aromas of caramel, fudge, oak and booze fill my nose. Set the glass on the table a few feet away and I could still smell it. Taste is all of the above....lots of fudge, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, oakiness and some definite booze. For 20.5%, I expected some heat, even with a 3 yr old beer. Drinks thicker than it looks. Coated the mouth with vanilla, caramel and booze. Overall, even with the hints of booziness there, this is still relatively smooth. Excellent beer.
