Nice, big light head. Goes away slowly. Beer is pitch black. A: dark bread, light smell of coffee, liqurice T: bitter chocolate, coffee. A little sweet when it first hits your mouth but then bitter and goes to just a hint of sour in the end.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is dark chocolate, dark fruits, liquorice with some soy and some dessert wine. Bit sweet taste with dark syrup notes, some coffe roastiness but a bit pale.. Finish is a bit of burnt smokieness. Would have prefered little less bit more roasty now it feels to much porter and too little imperial stout. Very nice head though

Black duh. Some head short lasting. Fig raison leather aroma chocolate bready roast . hops with lots of chocolate fig and good complexity. Well worth its price was getting tired of mediocre overpriced beers till I came along to this. I see what people were raving about here this is excellent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Almost black beer with a toffee colored smallish head. Aroma is huge licorice, dark malts, coffee, cocoa, hops, sweet fruits, plums. Taste is smooth dark malts, cocoa, coffee, sweet fruit (fig?). Rather bitter finish. Smooth, but a bit hard to drink. A beer to enjoy, not to be drank in a hurry :)
