Draft at Churchkey 12.12.12. Rich black pour with tan head. Nose and flavor marked by beautiful vanilla, raisin, bittersweet chocolate, and caramel with a dry finish. Quite lovely.

From tasting notes: Nose is sour grape and oak backed by light strawberry and chocolate. Taste is roasted red wine (if that makes any sense) and bitter dark chocolate. Color is very dark with a light tan, sticky, lacy head. On the back end, mild sour notes make me wonder if there was any wild yeast used in fermentation. Tastes more stout than strong, dark Belgian. Candi sugar and chocolate are stronger as beer warms. Very good beer.

Black pour with a rich tan head. Quick to dissipate and leaves no trace of lacing. Sweet malty aroma with some dark fruit mixed in. Peppery taste mixed with some vanilla and a bit of a caramel taste. A slight sour feeling from the aging in barrels I suppose. But a nice mixture of sweet maltiness is left behind to help out. A very good beer.
