Look: Huge thick equal brown/mocha head, slow retention. Some spectacular shit. Color of the beer is dark brown/black. Leaves lots of lacing. One of the best looking beers.

Smell: Fresh, surprisingly. Nice balance of roasted, coffee malt, hop and spices. Smooth clove, star anise notes, hints of something stronger; also some medicinal/peppermint notes. When it warms up, the roasted malt start to dominate.

Taste: Some sweetness at start, goes to big roasted/mocha/dark chocolate middle malt, still smooth tho. Ends with bitterness from roasted malt and some hop hints. Quite refreshing. No hint of the alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Mid-full body, maybe a bit less then expected. Carbonation lively, but still leaves a nice creamy feel. No warming from the alcohol.

Overall: This one got me a bit off guard - wasnt expecting it to be this good. A fine specimen. The extra spices add the freshness but stay in balance with the whole idea - a very good execution. And it looks stunning.

750ml bottle from Antioch Fine Wine. Appears to be the 2011 version from the label (certainly is not the 2012/2013 versions). Pours a very, very dark brown with a milk chocolate head leaving some nice lacing. Aroma has heavy roast, dark chocolate, toffee and burnt sugars. Yummy. Taste is of sweet milk chocolate, chocolate liquour, toffee and espresso. Medium to full bodied, and super smoooooth. Faint alcohol presence. Finishes long and nicely balanced on that bitter/sweet scale. This is lovely; rich, smooth and tasty.

Oh my, I have been anticipating this one for a long while. Last years was not that good so Im happy to be able to step back a few years in time with this 2011 bottle. Here we go...
Pours black with a big dark brown head that rests down to a bubbly film. Aroma has citrus/herbal hops, roasted malt, old coffee, dark chocolate. Taste is as above but with some slight tart note. Thick mouth feel, full body, soft carbonation. After taste is short, dry and chocolatey bitter.
3 years old and held up very nice. Much more well composed/balanced compared to a fresh bottle but thats, of course, pretty much expected.

27-DEC-2013, bottle @home. Unclear Brown with lasting, lacing tan head. Aroma is spice, fruit, bread, coffee and other roasted stuff. Taste the same. Full body and soft carbonation. Fantastic. Had it side by side with the 2012 that was slightly better.

Bottle @ home, aged 2 years. Pours dark reddish to black with a massive mocha head with large bubbles and some lacing. Lots of vinous dark fruits in the aroma, sweet notes of bourbon, roast, dark chocolate, oak, dark bread & honey. Some warming alcohol. Mouth feel is full bodied and smooth. Taste starts sweet of dark fruits, bourbon & sweet chocolate followed by a dry oak & bread tone. Finishes dry with a grainy feeling & a somewhat sour roast character combined with citrus & chocolate.

En hel del chocklad och kaffe i aromen. Viss syrlighet, riktigt bra balanserad kropp med en lagom kolsyra.

Aged 2 years. Black pour with a thin ring of khaki head. Nose is dark and roasted with a bit of booze ester, a touch of bourbon, and a wee bit of molasses. Flavor is big and roasty with sweet dark chocolate, alcohol heat, earthy roast, molasses, and a wee touch of coffee; finished with a bit of earthy dry caramel and roast.
