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

Very dark black color. Tan head that is light. Aroma is a smooth mixture of leather, vanilla, toasted malt, raisins and figs. Nice sweetness up front, boozy vanilla throughout with a nice lingering flavor. A delicious stout, dessert!
