4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Thanks to Sebletitje fors haring this goodness. 75 cl. bottle, thick navy blue way. 2011 Vintage apparently – sole bottled one it seems. Got a tasting glass of this goodness. Pours a thick decadent, sludgy pitch black goodness, flat, zero head, a very vigorous pour gives a mocha head for about 2 seconds. Nose is full of pure sweet vanilla oak goodness, ridiculous, thick fudge, chocolate pie, whisky, light booze, very thick syrup, syrupy coffee, roast,… Taste is molasses, pure fudge, thick chocolate pie, whisky, oodles of vanilla wood, booze, whisky, thicker vanilla, some light chilli in the back, red peppers kind, cacao, light roast,… Very thick syrupy, little carb. booze,… This is indeed as noted by Man-ki epic. Almost wanted to lick-up the single drop that was spilled.

Bottle sbared at the Brandon Brass Tap, poured a dark black color with aromas of fudge, light pepper, whisky and some roast. Flavors were the same, mellow pepper and light whisky made this beer amazing. Glad I saved the bottle and shared with some friends. Please make this beer again.

Huge whiskey aroma, chocolate hits big in the flavor then bam the coffee kicks in, then cholos all about 30 sec apart. This is simply amazing. Jesus Christ.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle. Thanks to Adam for contributing this offering... Again with a thick viscous pure deep black hue and topped with a moderate darker tan head that receded to a thin ring around the edges of the glass... Butterscotch and caramel upfront in the aroma with softer more mellow whiskey notes. Vanilla surfaces more through the middle and finish. Soft to moderate pepper nicely finishes things off... Flavors fail to deviate much from the aroma with solidified with charred chocolate oites to pair alongside a soft gentle whiskey presence. A light to medium pepper presence meshes nicely late and prolongs through the finish. Thick consistency throughout. Nicely executed. Original > whiskey > virgin oak at this point.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours opaque black with average, fizzy dark tan head; short retention and no lacing. Aroma is whiskey, woody notes, roasted malt, dark chocolate, light smoke, and espresso. Flavor is heavy malt and some supporting dark fruit esters; whiskey and espresso undertones throughout; dry, ashy finish. Full body, medium carbonation, and high warmth.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
black, tan large bubbled head. Nose is burnt raisin, wood, tar, light heat. Flavor is more wood and heat, especially through mid, charred as well, light plum and milk chocolate through finish, lightly stinging sugar but balanced and dry for cigar city, meaning still a final OG that’s higher than any starting OG from Jandrainoiulle.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750mL bottle, courtesy of wavers1. Thanks, man! Pours a dark, dark chocolate color; plenty oily, modestly sized fine-bubbled dark-brown head. Dark chocolate, spiciness, cocoa, and a lightly sharp bourbon character; quite nice with no harsh edges. Full mouthfeel; light carbonation; layers of cocoa, dark chocolate, spicy chili, and cinnamon; just a very different beast from the Pappy Dark Lord: more reserved, focused, unique. A delicious, non-trivial BA impy stout.
