Poured from 22oz bottle into glass. Bottling date on bottle neck is smudged, but looks to sometime in 2011.
Black colored body, with dark brown back lit highlights. Two finger tan head, which settles back to a creamy cap. Leaves behind a thick pattern of lacing.
Aroma of creamy roasted malts, and a little char and smoke.
Taste is dark roasted malts, molasses, cream, and a little char and smoke. A little sweet, but no real bitterness past the roasted malts and smoke.
Thicker mouth feel. Decent carbonation.
This has a slightly past its prime aura, but the main aroma and taste are a smooth combination of dark chocolate, sweet cream, and smoke/char. This bottle has been sitting in my refrigerator for a long time, and finally comes up in the rotation for drinking. Quite an impressive appearance of body and lacing, and the taste holds up despite its age.
