Bottle to goblet at the RBAG14 warmup Wow...okay, I just finished slamming down a Prairie Bomb which was amazing BTW, but this is AWESOME! Huge caramel, molasses, rum, raisins, and whiskey....damn, I don’t know, there’s much more going on. Dark creamy, silky dark brown with a tan head that’s so thick that requires 7 rinsings and some scrubbing to clean. Taste is my mom’s rum Christmas, fruitcake...rum, maraschino cherries, currants, vanilla, candied fruit.

Bottle, RBAG 2014 prelim. Extremely viscous near black, clinging viscously to the glass. Wow. Incredible aroma, brothy, soy sauce, burnt marshmallow, breadcrusts, cinnamon, sponge toffee, fudge fudge fudge!!!! Holy flavour bomb craziness-- so incredibly dense, but balanced. This absolutely CRUSHES in the impy stout arena, risky in its spiciness, thick with toasty caramel, intriguing with its peppery heat. Certainly one of the most compelling beers I’ve had to date. World class,

Aroma if cinnamon and whiskey. Chocolate and vanilla. Chocolate snicker doodle. Appears pitch black, little to no head, what little there is has a tan color. Taste is decadent as fuck, chocolate, cinnamon, the peppers come through on the back end with a gentle warming heat. The whiskey is there, it’s aggressive expression meets with the peppers heat but fades to chocolate.
