      Place: at the brewery
      Score: 20 points
      Appearance (3)
      Black. Moderate head.
      Aroma (4)
      Spicy alcohol. Mildly roasty. Oaky.
      Mouthfeel (10)
      Thick, creamy. Rich malt, intensely and nicely roasty. Spicy alcohol. Definite oak flavor, but I don't think it's a barrel aged beer. Smooth, warming, malty, roasty, tasty.
      Overall Impression (3)
      I wanted to try the 2010 bottle too, but they want $70 for it.
