I think it’s about time I open this bottle. This is a 2007 release, courtesy of Photekut, thanks for the trade!

Impenetrable darkness! A huge, cocoa colored, 3 finger layer of foam, trickling down slowly. Great retention.

Coffee, raisins, a mixture of dark fruits, semi-sweet chocolate, roasted malts, intense toast aroma, brown sugar, light molasses, and hints of vanilla wafers. Earthy hoppiness in the background. Chocolate covered nuts. A little peanut in the background. Hints of maple syrup. The aroma is good to very good.

Roasted barley and toasted malts upfront with a dry cocoa finish. Starts off a bit too thin but the finish and aftertaste is quite nice. Not as big bodied as the aroma would lead to believe. Some raisin and chocolate in the finish. Dry and slightly bitter roasted barley in the end. Good, but not as complex as I thought it would be.

Medium carbonation, feels thin at first but the carbonation rescues the beer in the finish.
