2012 vintage. Decadent beer. You can easily recognize the black tuesday. Heavy smell of hazelnut but the taste is more muted. Like it but drink with care.

The high sugar intensity actually took away from the feel of the beer, not just the taste.

2015 vintage opened at a recent bottle share. Pours jet black and has a great aroma. Huge beer but the ABV was hidden well. Not overly sweet and very enjoyable.

A: it's a dark color that is a mixture of black, ruby red, and dark brown. Had on draught so comes to me with no head at all. Light is able to penetrate

S: bourbon, milk chocolate, soy, toasted malts, dried sweet fruits, and earthy nuttiness

T: wow tonsssssss of sweetness upfront. It's a thick, sugary syrup sweetness. There is definitely some hazelnut behind that as well, with that milk chocolate. The nutiness is a nice companion to the sweetness. Bourbon is in here as well, but is pretty mellow and acts as a nice accent. I'm surprised to say this, but the alcohol presence is really not much in here. You can feel it on the tongue, but not much beyond a tingle on the back of the tongue

M: full, syrupy mouthfeel. Carbonation is pretty low, as I'd expect

O: really well crafted beer here. Huge ABV, but not extremely noticeable. It's very sweet though, so be prepared. This is the true definition of a sipper - take your time and enjoy this
