Reviewed 1/5/2014 from 2013 vintage
A: Pitch black liquid, tan head with great retention
S: A tad raisiny
T: Good roasty and chocolatey notes. Nice assertive hops that back off and are not overpowering in the finish
M: Waerming, roasty
O: Very tasty, but the smell is so different and off-putting that I marked it down.

Thanks to iguenard for the bottle!

Even after a year-ish of age on this bottle, the hops are still potent, very surprising. A nice deep body, black with a creamy head. As noted, this had a really hop nose along with ample roasted malt, cocoa, dark chocolate. The taste was also very dry from bittering hops as well as dark roasted malts, char, burnt coffee, cocoa nibs. It had a nice round, full mouthfeel and a nice amount of carbonation.

Bottle into my Lost Abbey glass.

Coal-black, a thick, dark blanket. One finger of dense tan foam sticks to the sides of the glass in attractive horizontal strands.

Surprising hop character. Orange peel, pine, wood smoke -- like a swig of OJ in a pine forest. Alcohol, chocolate and toast swirl as well.

Citrus carries through into the flavor, but all the bitterness seems to be coming from burnt malts. A bright blend of pine and dark chocolate-dipped orange slices, with a bit of smoke and woodiness.

The aroma and flavor are decent, but the mouthfeel might have them both beat. It's medium in viscosity while smooth and light as whipped cream.

A nice example of a hoppy stout. Not life-changing, but tasty.
