2013 Vintage
A: Pours a very dark brown with a one finger chocolate head that dissipates slowly, And nice lacing.
S: Strong dark fruits with hints of chocolate, molasses, and smoke. This is pretty complex on the nose.
T: Licorice, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and smoke. Sweet and complex.
M: Heavy and thick. Slightly bitter but very smooth, although the alcohol is there.
O: A complex stout. Good but not worth the headaches tracking it down. I have a couple to age, will revisit down the road.
