On tap at Barrels & Bottles, vintage 2012. Almost black appearance with a dissipating head and minimal lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, tart cherries, dark malts, caramel, oak and light vanilla. Similar flavor, dark, malty, fruity, tart and vinous. Complex and pretty interesting. A nice sipper. (note: I may have had the cognac barrel version)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at PIB, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out loads of chocolate, some roasted malt and caramel. Flavour is very rich, with loads of chocolate, medium roasted malt, and a touch of caramel. Very rich and sludgy, with an uncompromising body. Thick, viscous and bold. Good stuff in small samples.
Earlier Rating: 7/26/2012 Total Score: 3.5
Sampled on tap at PIB, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, metallic notes and some chocolate. Flavour of roasted malt, chocolate and the metallic notes again. Full-bodied, but not too refined - some jagged edges. Good, but could use some work.
