Pours a dark brown, almost black, with a tan head. The aroma is chocolate malts. The flavor is phenomenal with a burst of molasses and malt with a buttery mouthfeel, but as it warms it becomes more balanced with a bit of hops before finally settling down into straight malt with a hint of black licorice.
Not sure what this tasted like a year ago, but we think age has only improved this and we give it a very solid 4 out of 5 stars. Looking forward to this year's 14!
