22 oz bottle shared by drewbeerme. Thanks, bud. Pours a rich blackish opaque pour with ruby brown glow on the edges, touches of glow, rich haze and frothy tannish head that dies to a small ring, laces small. Aromas are rich cocoa and dark fruit cherries and plum, roasty malts, caramel, toffee. Rich malty elements, gentle touches of oatmeal sweetness, toast, caramel. Richer dark fruit comes forward. Initial is richer, a firm heavier medium body with good bitter cocoa, touches of orange rind, toffee, toast, and some biscuits. Thicker a bit with some dryness, touches of dark fruit, black cherries, with rich dark fruit and cocoa. Touches of orange rind. Finish offers a touch of dryness, some tootsie roll, richer black cherry and dark fruit influence pans out. Solid, but not necessarily my thing. Rich dark fruit element.

22oz bottle consumed on 10/30/10. Reviewed from notes. Poured into a goblet-style glass. Pours a dirty, muddy deep brown/black with about a half-inch of dark mocha head. Some lace left behind. The nose is full of creamy chocolate, roasted malts, fresh coffee. Everything is still bold and pronounced. Great smell. The mouth is perfectly silky and smooth. Decent amount of carbonation backing, even after 2 years. Excellent finish. The flavors meld well with notes of milk chocolate, coffee, and a bit of a vinous twang on the back end. The oatmeal really adds a smooth creamy dimension that fits this beer wonderfully. Iím glad I was able to try this. Great beer!
