Had this one at acre. From 2011 and they claim it is the best. Tastes like all the others from later years. Really strong an pours black. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at DoTLA. Pours nearly still (poor conditioning, though not the cellarmaster’s fault) with no head. Deep black with brown edges. Nose is slightly tart, some spice and chocolate. Rich and a touch boozy. I don’t get the same fruits as adam. On tasting, a bit thin and yeah, flabby. Carbonation would certainly help. More grainy and lacking the depth here. Not a huge fan of this one but nice to try.

Cask pour at Day/Night of the Living Ales 2013 at Goose Island - Wrigleyville (Chicago, IL). Pours a thicker dark opaque blackish pour, some good legs on the swirl. Touch of brownish rind, laces small. Aromas are rye malt, cocoa, toffee, and toast. Touch of spirit, vanilla, spice, and mellow heat. Some touches of spirit. Initial is medium bodied, a touch of girth, low carbonation. Throwing rye malt, pretzels, toffee and toast. Gentle spirit, cocoa, some mellow coffee. Plum and dried fruit, some toffee, toast. More red fruit, a touch of cough syrup. A bit flabby. Middle is sweet, a bit roasty, firm toastiness, some vanilla, spirit. Coffee, cocoa, some spirit. Mellow coffee, toastiness, some messy sweetness. Meh. Finish is a bit flabby, hot, and some roasty. Some ash, earth. Flabby, falls flat and has a dark fruit sweetness, sticky quality without some lift from some mellow carbonation on the palate. Not sure if the Coconut in the other variation just covers that up and I overlook it or if these are completely different as far as how they developed in their respective casks. Ok.
