Bottle at FoCo Stout Tasting 2013, courtesy of Dave. Thanks man! Pour is pitch black with a small brown head and decent lacing. Big toffee, caramel, bourbon, cocoa, coffee, raisins, figs, and cinnamon in the aroma. Taste is rich chocolate, light spice, toffee, caramel, raisins, bread, earthy, vanilla, and leathery with a light bite on the backend. Slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Really nice stuff.

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Real treat for the night. Aroma is licorice, dates, figs, dark chocolate and rum sugar. Pours black and viscus with no head or carbonation whatsoever. Taste is dark and sweet with prunes, licorice, dark chocolate, cherries, oak, sweet rum, and dates. The roast darkness of this really shines and the rum flavors are very subtle. This is a dangerously easy beer to knock down. Was super grateful to try this.

Bottle from bytemesis, big thank you. Very dark, no foam. Boozy aroma, chocolate and dark fruit (raisins), almond. Similar flavor, booze, almond, raisins. Fair attempt, just too strong alcohol notes.

jbeatty (1070) - New York, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Review from backlog, 06/23/2011. Pours pitch black, with a dark tan head that quickly fades. Aroma is rich chocolate brownie, not overly sweet, with spices, mostly cinnamon, mildly sweet grapes, rum raisin and brown sugar. Taste is initially sweet, dark fruits, prunes and currants, slightly smoky, ends with gentle roast and mild dark chocolate, coffee finish. Body is rich and creamy, flavors blending nicely. Really enjoyed this one- the rum barrel treatment and raisins bring a nice richness, a great treat.

sebletitje (6859) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 23, 2013
75cl bottle, courtesy of ibrew2or3. Split with my brother. Noire foncée - col moka, huileux sur le verre. Arôme est malté épais, chocolaté, note de raison sucre résiduel, mélasses avec ce bouquet rétro nasal de barrique et rhum. Palais reste ici très épais, malté couvre le tout entre note grillée, chocolaté et pas mal d’alcool, voire bcp trop. Pointe de fumé, note épicée de cannelle, fruité noir complexe avec cet ajout de raisin. Le tout colle aux lèvres avec le rhum qui se fait présent mais sans pour cela dominer le tout. Au final, même à deux la bière est dure à terminer, c’est juste de trop et on finit par être écœuré.

Scopey (7221) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2013
Bottle, many thanks to Jack. It pours opaque darkest brown with a small tan head. The nose is rich-roasted malt, soy sauce, toasted sesame seed, rum & raisin ice-cream, wood and coffee. The taste is roasted malt, earth, toast, wood, dark fruit, alcohol warmth, motor oil, rum dark fruit and spice. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Only slight negative is the soy notes, but damn this is a tasty beer.
