JDBaker11058 (2220) - Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2016
appearance: dark brown to black, one finger of creamy tan head. aroma: hugely aromatic; tons of sweet dark chocolate, vanilla, caramel, molasses, licorice, and plums. taste: bittersweet dark chocolate, sweet bourbon, molasses and prunes and plums and some raisin; undertone of roasty coffee and black bread. finish:lasting sweetness fades, leaving general chocolate, roast, and a hint of black licorice. notes: Unbelievably good. ABV incredibly well-hidden. Flavors and aroma were excellent. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club, aged for 2+ years, which may have mellowed things out a bit. This was special.
