Sample@gothenburg-tasting. Thanks blomster for sharing! Apperance: Oily dark brown with little/no head. Aroma: Spices, Choclate, Bourbon. Taste: Cinammon, Chocolate, Vanilla, Booze, Hint of chili. Palate: Oily with little carbonation and some hint of booze in the aftertaste. A very, very, nice beer but the hype is strong in this one. Spices seem a little too subdued.

Pour is jet black with a dark mahogany and bubbly head. Nose is super green at first, burns off after opening up a little, some olive, sugary sweetness, hints of peppery spice, some notes of sweet rum, some dark berry sweetness. Flavor is so sweet, some chalky chocolate, sweet rum, sugar every where, faint peppery spice in back. Full bodied, nicely carbonated but a touch oily. Seriously people?

So oily, so much coconut. The rum shows as a spicy edge, the apple brandy as a delicate apple cider esquire tartness. So refreshing, yet so heavy in soy and yeast notes. Amazing!

On tap at Bell's Funvitational. The pour is a viscous oily black with no head and no lace. The aroma is beautiful. There is a resounding cinnamon is amazing. The rum and brandy come through beautifully with no booze. The complexities are great. The flavor is unbelievable. Cinnamon, vanilla, rum and brandy sweetness and an excellent apple skins on the back. The mouth feel is thick and chewy with a soft carbonation and a deliciously lingering finish. Amazing ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2015 Sample at Funvitational. Aroma is rum barrel, cinnamon, chilies, vanilla, chocolate. Appearance is thick, black, brown head. Taste is cinnamon, sweet rum, nutmeg, chilies, cookies, sex, wow. Mouthfeel is perfect, a touch of heat and thick with little carbonation. Overall, move over Proprietor’s 2014. Enter my perfect beer.

Merci à tous, merci la vie. Un premier nez où je détecte le piment, la boîte de cigare (du pin), le chocolat, mélasse, réglisse, le brandy de pomme semble présent (celui de Michel Jodoin est excellent en passant) mais je peux rêver. Un liquide collant parcoure ma bouche, les saveurs sont intenses, du piment chili (j’adore, j’ai fait poussé du Bhut Jolokia cette année) avec du chocolat. Inutile d’écrire des heures, cette bière est tout simplement sublime.

SlovakSniper (4829) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 3, 2015
Merci à Jool pour le partage! Corps ténébreux et mousse très foncée, presque noire. Des parfums de biscuit, de raisins secs, de noix de coco, de petites baies, de bois, de chocolat à la cannelle, de prunes compotées, de vanille, de réglisse, de mélasse et de piments, de strudel aux pommes, de miel, de tabac sucré et j’en passe. Des saveurs qui livrent la marchandise. Un corps soyeux, faiblement infiltré par les bulles. Mais quelle superbe texture! Une finale piquante et nécessaire pour apaiser toute cette opulence. Un impérial stout carrément fou.

Enjoyed at Freetail Bottleshare 2015... The crowd went wild... Got a 2 oz pour, finally tried it... Thick chewy full bodied beer with tons of dark chocolate, mocha, cinnamon and barrel notes... Alcohol content almost unnoticeable... Really enjoyable and drinkable huge stout... The king of it's style ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Huna Day. Never rated it for some reason...Poured into my small snifter. Deep black liquid with small mocha head. Powerful aroma with deep chocolates, cinnamon, cayenne, oak barrel, prunes, and anise. The taste is an amazing balance between the dark fruits, chocolate, cinnamon and cayenne. BIG mouth feel and think full body. Chewy finish. Really delicious.
