3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
[Bottle] Inky black pour with very little head on top. Nose is of bitter chocolate, wood ash, coffee and lighter anise notes. Taste is of bitter malts, mocha, charred tobacco, molasses and moderate hop bitterness. Oily palate and a sticky, coating mouthfeel. A nice beer. Tasting notes from 2/2012.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz. bottle to shaker. Pours BLACK. Light does not shine though it. Two finger brown head, no a lot of lacing, surprisingly. Aroma of dark malts, dark chocolate, coffee and anise. Taste is super-complex. Bitter up front, bittersweet in the middle and it finishes bitter from the malts not the hops. Amazing. Notes of coffee and complex dark malts. Body is borderline medium to heavy, carbonation is perfect, but unseen. This stout is World Class.

Bottle. Roasted malt and chocolate aroma with light notes of coffee. Pours deep black colored with a thin, light brown head and not much lacing. Roasted malt flavors with just a hint of coffee to start. Rich chocolate rounds out the finish with the flavors lingering on the palate on the smooth, rich, flavorful finish.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Urge. Pours a pitch black with a one finger tan head with excellent lacing. Aroma is of coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, molasses, smoke, and caramel. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with a lot of nice coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt notes. Has a medium-full body with a semi bitter,medium-long finish. Overall, a very nice stout that is very complex, while still being pretty drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bouteille: Literally black, small tanned head; rich and dry roasty nose including a tinge of vanilla, dried fruits and traces of wood plus a chocolatey touch; moderate to solid bitter flavour, nearly full bodied and pretty soft; lingering dry finish of cacao and roasted malt with illusions of tobacc. Rich and impressive drop…

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep dark black. Licorice, vanilla and coffee in aroma. Taste is bitter, no toastiness like many stouts but more dark roast. Not extremely full, so quite drinkable. Super beer!
