UPDATED: DEC 13, 2012 Bottle shared with rbrazell, thanks! Pours a thick brownish-black from the bomber with thin tan head and light lacing. Aroma of red wine and chocolate. Taste is dark chocolate, bitter hops, spices that remind you of christmas, with a dry, ashy, chcolatey finish. Booze catches up as a burn in your stomach. Good stuff.

Deep brown pour with a small tan head. Chocolate, salt, ash notes of coffee and figs on the nose with bits of wood and vanilla. Chocolate covered raisins on front of the tongue with Belgian yeast, spices with hints of coffee. Medium bodied with hints of booze and a quick finish. Not bad.

Might need a rerate on this, as this did little for me. Found it to have little body for 11%, seemed underdone and wasn’t exactly brimming with flavour. It certainly wasn’t bad - the dark fruits, figs, cinammon and vanilla were nice, but it didn’t go anywhere or hold my interest for long. Might need some time to come together. Body seemed a bit underwhelming and a tad undercarbonated.
