2012 bottle. Pours a dark brown with medium beige head that lasts awhile. The aroma is chocolate, roast, vanilla, and oak. Medium mouthfeel with sweet roast and vanilla, raisin, and sweet lingering finish. Really enjoyed this one.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (750 m). 2012 vintage. Thanks to Kevin, David, Andrew and Levi who all sent me a bottle of this! Pitch black with a frothy brown head, good retention and good lacing. Aroma is of chocolate, dark fruits, cherries, toffee, roasted malt, tobacco and light resinous notes. Taste is moderately to heavily sweet with chocolate, dark fruits, toffee, coffee and light bitterness. Warming alcohol (to too much). Full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Creamy/silky mouthfeel. Excellent non barrel-aged RIS. Very complex. Well balanced despite the sweetness. I wouldn’t mind having this one again.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
[5151-20130309] Bottle. Roasted malt and light wood and a light dustiness in the aroma. Black body with a medium-lasting creamy brown head. Roasted bread grains and muted burnt coffee malt flavour. Full body. Surprisingly balanced for such a bold beer, very drinkable and tasty. (9/4-/9/5/17) 4.4

Overheard: "I could try and drink a whole bottle of it."

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beer pours pitch black motor oil viscous. Aggressive pour gets two-three finger head no problem. Good carbonation on this beer. Mocha colored head. Nose is huge, chocolate, molasses, dark fruit (plum or fig, maybe raisin), slight roasted note, hint of alcohol. Immediate thoughts are how thick the beer is. Mouthfeel is huge. Chocolate and dark fruit sweetness at the front of the tongue, middle of the mouth more dark fruit, hint of leather, finishes with a nice hop bitterness and chocolate and roasted malts. As it warms the leather comes out more in the nose and taste. This is an excellent RIS, but honestly with all the trouble I had to go to in order to get it, I think I will pass next year. The trouble I had to go through to get it, being in Minnesota when I bought it, and having my family live in Minnesota and buy me multiple bottles, and the trouble they had to go through, took away points from this beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught, 9.6%. Sweet aroma, brown sugar. Almost black colour, seems hazy. Small stable brown head. The flavour starts off very sweet, almost thick mouthfeel from the sugar. It is also a bit smoked and has a rather bitter finish. Syrupy mouthfeel.

Pleasantly surprised to see this bottle come out at last night’s tasting -- thanks, D! Pours viscous, nearly black. Dark fruits, chocolate, vanilla, and licorice. Surprisingly sweet, and damned good.
