2012 vintage

a - poured flat. no head with just the slightest ring of lace. body was dark black.
s - coffee aromas with a hint of alcohol.
t - coffee with a spicy finish. slightly boozy.
m - thin and dull. no carbonation to speak of.
o - i had high hopes for this beer and think there was something there but this beer was about as flat as can be which really messed up the experience.

a very thick black pour with a slight amount of bubbles - no head, looks like there's no sign of carbonation at all.
the smell is a strong bold roast, dark chocolate, coffee, oak, vanilla, dates, fig. the flavor is just as bold as the aroma, however there is a bit of a peppery kick (very subtle) in the finish. a delicious coffee roasty bitterness overall, with hints of chocolate and a boozy bite.
the beer itself is completely flat, which i'm not sure is an aging problem since i've aged beers way longer and they stayed pretty well carbonated. a thick, mouth coating feel aside from that.

i feel like if this beer was a slight bit carbonated, it would have made a world of difference. the flavor and aroma are excellent. it would just be a lot better with some fizzyness.
