Bottle for 7K. Pours black. Nose/taste of smoke, rubbing alcohol, cigarette butt, baked ham, chocolate ash and shoe leather. Harsh, but not as harsh as I was expecting. Medium body.

freretoc (685) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 6, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 37.5cl, j’avais un énorme à priori sur cette bière, couleur boire at absolument aucune mousse ni aucune bulle (vu le degré d’alcool ce n’est pas étonnant) au nez on sent surtout l’alcool en bouche c’est presque pateux, mais très complexe et agréablement doux, on sent uen attaque sur le cerise griotte, les fruits rouges et le cherry, une bonne surprise

Renobob (637) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 5, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 37,5 cl. Bon d’accord, à la base, c’est juste pour le défi qu’on achète cette bière. Mais quand même, c’est très correct. Moi, je pensais que ça serait dégueu mais en fait c’est plutôt cool. Arômes chocolat, cherry, liqueur de vin rouge. A essayer, ne serait-ce que pour l’exceptionnel :)

jredmond (5330) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle at clocks. Pours a deep amber brown. Aroma is straight shoe polish alcohol. Mouthfeel is horrible. Straight alcohol, heat and shoe polish. Awful.

keanex (1452) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Bottle.
Appearance: Deep chestnut body, murky, with no head.
Aroma: Big fruity raisin, big chocolate, soy sauce, roasty and boozy. Sweet aroma.
Taste: Wow, very sweet. Not Southern Tier Creme Brulee sweet, but sweet. Lots of dark fruit and chocolate notably on the intro. This becomes incredibly boozy by the finish with tannins. Reminds me a bit of a boozier World Wide Stout.
Palate: Super thick like cough syrup.
Overall: Super pricey and more of a novelty than anything. I could see this being enjoyed as a cordial or with desert.

Satyroneto (103) - - MAR 14, 2014
Russian Imperial Stout; 32% de alcool; Cor negra sem espuma; Aroma doce, licoroso e intenso de frutas vermelhas/escuras (framboesa, ameixa, cereja, cassis...) e vinho do porto; Sabor de inicio doce seguindo a mesma linha do aroma, evoluindo para meio e fim picante e alcoolico que aquece a boca levemente; retrogosto de leve picardia e levemente alcoolico; Baixa carbonatacao e corpo sedoso, licoroso. Alcool muito bem inserido, sem agredir ou lembrar uma bebida destilada. ---Rated via Beer Buddy by Satyro

From a bottle thanks to Toby(JohnGalt1). Very smokey and boozy smell. Taste was very high in pete malt. Also this beer will light on fire, pretty cool to watch.
