Sampled from a 750ml bottle. I'm thinking 2010 based on the 750ml, no date and Groucho glasses. Thanks surge1311!

A – Black with no light and a moderate tan head that dissipates quickly. Clings to the glass nicely.

S – Dark chocolate, coffee and roasted barely.

T – Smooth with chocolate and roasted barley joined by a depth of subtleties including a hint of molasses. The flavor is relatively tame but still interesting and enjoyable. Leans toward the dry side but still a hint of sweetness.

M – Creamy with a well behaved carbonation.

O – Not overly assertive but flavorful and enjoyable.
