Bottle, shared at RBAG by dfearnley. Very dark brown, almost black. Rich mocha and cream, spicy undertones, fruit acids in the finish. The spicy nuances are amplified as the beer warms. Terrific.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black, nice thin beige foam. Aroma is sweetish, dark fruits feeling light. Chocolate and cocoa nibs. Taste is also chocolaty plus has some stronger cocoa, dark fruit liquid. Coffee is bit subtle but is there and fills your taste buds with some enjoyment. Good stuff. Drinks like 7 or 8 percent beer, no way this is 13! Looks bit reddish.
