2015 vintage; Serving - 750ml bottle into a 12oz. snifter

A - Black with thin layer of tan head
S - cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla, and chiles
T - LOTS of cinnamon, some chocolate and vanilla, a little bit of chilies. The beer develops nicely as it warms up and the flavors come together a bit better.
M - Medium/full bodied with moderate carb.
O - This vintage definitely seems to have taken a step back, rating it where i am because I've had previous years and thought it was fantastic. This one just didn't integrate too well off the bat.
