2016 bottle.I remember those days in the freezin ass ice shanty's,don't miss em much.This pours into a goblet jet black with no light getting thru,a thinner deep beige head atop.Aromas of coffee,semi sweet chocolate,and dark prune/raisin,just an inviting RIS aroma with the inviting sweetness.Holy smokes a beer this big that isn't a sweet bomb,starts out with some bitter chocolate and dark roast,caramel and praline notes come thru as I drink more with more earthy tones in the back end.Wow I was intrigued by this beer but it's even better than anticipated,for me the best of 2018 so far.
