2008 edition.

Pours an intense black with a dense inch of mocha colored foam.

Rich aromas of chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, and toast. There’s some milk chocolate and a combination of dark and milk chocolate along with vanilla. Chocolate malts, toasted bread and wood notes in the background. Surprisingly well blended for a young bottling of such a big beer. A brief whiff of alcohol in the finish. Alcohol has a stronger presence once the beer warms up.

A rush of chocolate, wood, vanilla, and chocolate covered cherries with a slightly warming sensation on the throat from the alcohol. Bitter chocolate with roasted malts in the finish and aftertaste. I’m getting some faint flavors of anise in the aftertaste as well as grain. A little more alcohol as it warms up.

A bit thinner than I remember but quite good.
