12oz bottle, #67. Small beige head, cola black body. Aroma is moderately sweet, cocoa, some coffee, ash. Taste is moderately sweet, roast, some coffee, ash. Medium body, low carbonation, light stickiness. I had a quick taste on the release day, and really liked it -- for whatever reason, doesn’t seem to have aged well.

Pours a very overcarbonated black color with a massive tan head. Sour roasted grains with a bit of chat and ash. Heavy on te roast with some dark chocolate and coffee. The flavor is also quite acidic but still heavy on the coffee and dark chocolate, and of course, roasted malt.

12oz bottle that’s been aging in my cellar for two years. Pours a watery, dark brown with some fading, cloudy off white head. Nose was nice, a little dusty, pitted fruits, prunes, plum, brown sugar, some black pepper. A little thin in the mouth but overall dry. Flavor is sweet, brown sugar, some light toast, some light coffee, a little red grape juice, malt, molasses cookies. I was very pleased with how this had aged.

Bottle: The aroma consists of dark chocolate, roasted coffee, black licorice, and a hint of vanilla. It pours a dark brown, virtually black, with a small khaki head that quickly fades to ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with dark chocolate and caramel. There’s some plum notes and black licorice in the background. The finish has some mild roasted coffee. Medium-full bodied with mild carbonation.

Bottle #62. Picked up at Max’s on release day. Served in a tulip glass. Pours black with a single-finger head that eventually falls to a very thin tan cap and a fairly-thick collar. The nose has a bit of Belgian character, though I vaguely recall Brian saying that he didn’t actually use Belgian yeast in this. The nose is also slightly roasty though it has a bit of a medicinal characteristic as well. The taste is roasty and brings a slight bit of creaminess from the mouthfeel. There is also a bit of chocolate in the background. Medium body and definitely roasty throughout with a bit of dryness. No booze. Pretty good overall, though it could probably use a bit more time.
