From notes. Enjoyed on September 19 at Travis’ house. Poured from a 12 oz bottle, vintage 2010. The pour is a thinner dark brown with a small light tan head and no lace. The ring of head, however, lasts forever. The aroma is really boozy and in your face. There is a ton of roasted malts and the dark fruits are huge in this as well. There is a light chocolate, but for the most part the booze is huge, and the rest of the flavors follow suit. The flavor is again huge and boozy. There is a light roast, some chocolate, and hefty dose of dark fruits. Nothing is dethroning this booziness. The mouth feel is thick and viscous. There is a soft carbonation and a lingeringly hot, dark fruit finish. If it weren’t so punch you in the face boozy, this would be really good.

Oily black color with no head. Aroma is prune juice, bread, booze, and raisin bran. TSte is incredibally sweet and boozy with tons of fruit. Like a really bad port or sherry wine. Blah.

Bottle @ Darkness Day eve, thanks to StFun for sharing. Pours a black appearance with a thin brown head. Dark chocolate, burnt sugar, caramel, and some booze in the nose. Fairly clean but a little boozy flavor. A little roast and more dark chocolate in the flavor. Fun.
