Pours black and thick. Smelling like chocolate, roasted coffee and hints of burnt caramel. Tastes like hell. First sip quite smoky and dark chocolaty. Second sip softer on the grounds of an excellent imperial stout. Third sip (in a row) you feel a sweet flavor that reminds me of the tokyo, but softer, yet present. A most excellent blend to me.

Extremely pleasant to drink. Not to much aroma, but that might be related to a bit cold serving temperature. Otherwise a fantastic beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2013
330 mL bottle courtesy of Chris, served in a stem glass alongside its constituent beers. Pours black with a tiny tan head that fades to almost nothing, leaving a tiny amount of lace. The nose is a complex blend of chocolate, roasted malts and molasses along with herbs, a touch of earth and hops. The flavour is a beautiful blend of the three base beers, with molasses, herbs, anise, earth and a touch of coffee. The finish is long, peppery, herbal and roasty. On the palate, it is full in body with a smooth, syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is an amazing complex brew that is harmonic while retaining distinct elements of the three base beers. Beautiful! 2013-01-25
