Bottle from Hopscotch. Thanks a bill my friend!! It pours pitch black with a medium creamy brown head. The aroma is very dark ripe fruity with notes of berries, raisin, prune, sweet chocolate, sweet caramel, tobacco, vanilla, oak and some coffee. The flavour is light peppery, roasted malt, chocolate, prune, raisins, liquorice, sweet caramel, vanilla and has a very pleasant hoppy kick in the finish. This one is very balanced yet extremely powerful. Great!!!

Pouring at the grand tasting at RBSG in Philly. Pours a deep jet black. Big chocolate and roast. Great aromas but my oh my is it sweet. Syrupy, with chocolate and roast, chocolate pudding, brownies. Sweet, sweet, sweet, and more sweet. Chewy brownies on the finish.

Big thanks to someone for bringing this to RBSG. Pours out black with a thin tan head. Aroma is of some sweet raisins, roast, oak, and light alcohol. Nice creamy mouthfeel with some nice notes of raisin, cinnamon, chocolate, roast, oak and some light boozy rum notes in there also. Kind of like if someone made a chocolate rum raisin ice cream, minus the ice cream part.

Dak sent me this in a trade so I brought it to the BA Speedway release. Big and black and thick. Super sweet with raisins and rum. Nuttiness comes out a little in the back, but mostly dark sweet and rich rummy. Smooth.

6/15/11. 750mL bottle. Deeep black pour with a small tan head. Awesome sweet raisin and spice aroma like a wonderful raisin bread or some other dessert. Sweet raisin and rum flavor with a dash of chocolate and lingering coffee. Quite nice!

Bottle lagunitasfan. Dark oil pour, whispy brown head. Roasty nose with a little boozy rum floating in the background. Sweet, roasty, malty flavors with some brownie and nuts. Sweet but soft, somewhat velvety with fudge in the finish and the rum rounding and softening and refining things. Pretty damn good...if not maybe just a touch too sweet...but the rum makes that a lot more tolerable than it would be without the rum.

On tap at Churchkey in D.C. (full pour). Pours impenetrable black with the deepest, frothiest brown head I’ve yet to come across. The aroma is ripe with black currant, black cherries, smoke, molasses, dates/prunes, rum, oak and berries. It is violently overwhelming and I love it! The flavour is a bit salty (slightly off-putting) with intense milk chocolate, tannic notes, ash, coffee, and black pepper. Slimey/sweet vinous malts hide the booze. The mouthfeel is slick, gently carbonated, and as full-bodied as they come with an uber long palate duration. The finish leaves violently intense chocolate and smoke impressions. This is not for the faint of heart. A beer truly reserved for the sturdiest of palates. The only thing that I could really have done without was the odd salty tinge. aside for that, this is magnificent!
