1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 4/20
[On-tap at The Friendly Spot] I wasn’t going to pay the high price for this beer, but the person I was with did, so I tried some of his. After having tried it, I am extremely glad I didn’t order it. An odd solvent-like (similar to acetone, but slightly different) aroma is very prevalent when cold, but it faded as it warmed. Other than that, this beer is completely dominated by raisin, molasses, and alcohol. A little green pepper, chocolate, and day-old coffee were also in there. Good, thick mouthfeel with a long finish (more chocolate here). What a sweet, boozy mess. Incredible that this is rated so highly, because I found it to be a nearly undrinkable trainwreck.

Wow! One of the biggest beers I’ve ever had, but there is a shocking smoothness too it. Some alcohol warmth, oak, bitter chocolate, dark strong coffee, some dark fruits (berries), vanilla. Big thick mouthfeel, slick on the tongue. Pitch black pour with sticky oil cocoa colored head. Glad to have tried this beer.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep black body with ring tan head. Aroma has a balanced woody character, alcohol notes, dried plums, forest fruit. Some roastiness, but mostly overwhelmed by the berry-like fruit jam. Taste has high roasty bitterness upfront with complex sweetness coming in next, strawberries, blackberries, plums. Body is oily, heavy, full, low carbonation.

Elle est de couleur noire et la mousse et peu intense et descend assez rapidement
Au nez on va sentir principalement des notes de chocolat noir amandes grillées chicorée
En bouche la première chose qu’on va sans dire c’est sa consistance elle est très très épaisse personnellement je n’ai jamais vu une bière aussi épaisse et sirupeuse que celle-ci elle a une amertume extrêmement forte également on va sortir en arrière bouche un Roland d’alcool et on sent toujours des saveurs de chocolat noir comme au nez
Avis aux dégustateur aguerri

I love imperial stouts, but getting this up to 18% means that it is far too sweet for me.
