L: Pours a black somewhat muddy brown with a small tan head that doesn't stick around for too long, and very little lacing on the glass.

S: Cherry and vanilla are forefront in the nose followed by some wood and bourbon, and then some smoke ash, and roasted malt.

T: Ash, smoke and some peat mix with a nice strong cherry and vanilla, some roasted malt and a slight hop bitterness, with a pretty strong burn from the alcohol on the stomach.

F: Smooth thick body, could be a little thicker but still nice.

O: I have been looking for a bottle of this for a few years and it lives up to the expectations.

500ml bottle of 2017 vintage into two wine glasses with Lisa in Denver. Good not great and definitely NOT worth the hefty price tag. Smooth but not that chewy for the ABV. Chocolate and some wood/vanilla but not huge flavors. A bit disappointing. Maybe the 2017 batch isn't up to snuff as I definitely do not get the syrup and fudge others mention... Or maybe the pastry stout game has moved way past this.

2014 bottle poured into a Westy XII chalice. There was actually a greasy, pitch-black substance inside the bottle neck and on the underside of the bottlecap; it smelled like chocolate and was a portent of deliciousness to come. This could be marketed as a barrel-aged chocolate ganache, because wow. Much fudge. Such glorious. Plenty of roasted malt, barrel character, and still a ghost of vanillas past, but chocolate. All the chocolate.

For reference, I had a bottle last July that I do not recall being such a standout; I didn't rate it at the time, but from memory, I would say a 4.3 would have been fair. Now begins my quest for more, as it seems to be doing great.

2014 bottle into a Snifter

L: Inky black with a hint of ruby, minimal beige head dissipating quickly to a persistent collar
A: Caramel, toffee, oak, some heat, chocolate
T: Dark fruit, lingering malt, chocolate
F: Thinner than expected, but no big deal
O: Been searching for this one for a long time, worth the wait, will seek out again
