2022. 14%. Chocolate with some heat in the smell. Similar taste with the alcohol and barrel providing some good balance off the big stout. Big chocolate finish to a fault as it’s a little to sticky sweet. But solid nonetheless.

2006. Flat with not much carbonation left. Subtle raspberry and some chocolate and a little oxidation. Similar in taste with some nice chocolate notes on the back into finish. Way past its prime but not bad.
