A great old beer. Big imperial stout, pours chocolate black with no head. Chocolate, vanilla, and berries. I feel honored that I had this one. This is a special beer, that sadly, will not be tasted again. (July 2012)

.0.33 bottle, thanks Armando629!
Poured oily deep brown, so black with a small lacing beige head that went away fast. Very rich aroma with caramel, cherries, raisins, dry burnt wood in the finish. And some black tobacco. Fruits and cocoa. Lively chaos, fantastic beer!
