Bottle from a Seattle tasting. Molasses, a bit of spice. Delicious dark toffee. Hints of raspberry. Interesting imperial stout; I like it.

PhillyCraft (3692) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle smuggled from Netherlands as a gift care of Kermis shared with Jeano. Pours sinful black with small head that didn’t hang around for too long. Notes of bakers chocolate, rich barrel, caramel, tons of licorice and an impressive malt/hop bill. Has some nice bitterness mixed into the decadent roasty dark notes. Long lasting and warming in the chest. Cheech ahh

luttonm (2905) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2014

mcberko (8281) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
12 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma brings out notes of bourbon, spiciness, and roast. Flavour seems off a bit, with notes of cough syrup, other medicinal notes and light barrel notes. Something seems badly wrong here - how is this in the 100th percentile? Decent, but lacking.

Prufrockstar (1352) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle thanks to bytemesis. Deep brown pour with khaki head. Some lacing, even the next day. Roast, chocolate, dark fruit; coffee, soft vanilla and oak. Light marshmallow. Sweet, with warming, moderately bitter finish. Full body, slick texture. Overall: on the mellower side of treatments for this beer, but a nice sipper.
