  • Shared a bottle of 2009 with Rich and my wife.

    Pours opaque with edges clear when held up to the light. Foam is brown, thick, and about half a glass. Retention is lasting with a touch of lacing.

    Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Nothing really over burdens the other but all are well blended together.

    Taste is more of the same. Roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee playing a tap dance on the palate. In spite of the alcohol not present in the taste or the aroma.

    Light end of heavy body, maybe medium as I expected just a bit more to such a big beer. Low carbonation.

    This beer is deservingly well thought of. The balance of such a high ABV is outstanding. I will have to try and get more of this for future cold weather evenings. Enjoy!
