This one confused me, I couldn't tell if it needed more time or was way past it's prime. A lingering, metallic bitterness overpowered everything in the taste and smell.

2011 version, with persimmons. Thick mouthfeel of black thick looking rich liquid with some white head. Chocolate and spice aroma. Taste is deep chocolate, spicy all the way through, and an edgy bitter American Strong finish. Good drinkability despite high unnoticed abv.
Thanks for hooking me up, Chris.
