OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2012
Big bottle, kindly shared by larsga. Black with ruby edges. Low mocha head. Nose is faint ashy dark malts, black chocolate and hint of salty licorice. Well-roasted dark malt dominate the falvor. Notes of salty licorice, tar and burnt wood. A mellowing fruit tone underneath. Bittering hops for balancing only. More than medium full. Alcohol is noticable. Quite rough on the palate. Dryish burnt, slight peppery and fruity aftertaste.

Bottle @ Bruce’s. The pour’s thick, sludgy dark brown with a small head. Intimidating pour. The nose is grape, caramelized cherry. Brownie mix, cocoa. The taste is earthy, sweet. Cinnamon spiced chocolate cake. Some lactose. Vietnamese coffee. Full body, soft carbonation. Great stuff.

markwise (4467) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2011
Wow. 750 from CCB. Pours the typical Wambles dark black with a small tan head. Nose is raisin, chocolate, port, booze, slight rum, and sweetened chocolate. Flavor is a bit fudgy with raisins within: raisin, rum, chocolate, slight dark fruit, and slight rum. Medium-bodied stout that gains more complexity the warmer it gets. Very enjoyable imperial sweet stout.

ChainGangGuy (4373) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 19, 2012
Bottled in 2011.

Appearance: Pours out a black body with a high, deep tan-hued head.

Smell: Fire-cured toasted breadcrusts and roasted grains with an edge of smokiness encapsulating notes of chocolate, raisin, and star anise.

Taste: Sweetish dark, roasty maltiness. Vanilla-flavored simple syrup over the toasted, predominately roasted malts trailing into plump raisins and a light dust of spices. The bitterness present seems more a product of the roasted malts. Warming alcohol throughout. A little Raisinette on the finish with some spice and peppery alcohol lingering into the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light carbonation leading to a heavier, near-full mouthfeel.

Overall: You know, it’s a good, collaborative stout. Now then, pass the Hunahpu’s!

JohnnyJ (4356) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 12, 2011
Bottle thanks to 50belair. Heavy dark brown/black pour, with a dense tan head. Chocolate, heavily roasted malts, burnt brown sugar, spice, dark fruit, molasses, and a touch of infected sourness. It was good except for the light unpleasant sour notes. Nice heavy, sugary dessert beer. Rating 2600.
