4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours an opaque black with a large light brown head that settles to a tick ring and has fantastic legs. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malts, oak like, vanilla, mild cognac notes, dark dried fruits and a touch of licorice. All the aroma blends together quite nicely so not any 1 characteristic is over powering in any way. Flavour is a lot of the same: chocolate, roast malt, cocoa, mild bitterness, dark dried fruits, alcohol, licorice, oak like, mildly sweet and finishes a little warm and dry. Fantastic beer, and i guess that makes my 900th rate beer rating. Definitely memorable!

12 oz. bottle shared at the RBNG by radarsock. The aroma is cognac alcohol with milk chocolate, burnt ash and dark fruit
Flavor shows dark chocolate underneath cognac barrel, burnt malts, and layered caramel and toffee. Full bodied, soft carbonation, smooth on the palate. Mouthfeel is really great without any alcohol hurting any of the flavors. I enjoyed the hell out of this one!

Awesome! Smells a little one dimensional and sweet but flavor is an incredible balance. What an incredible stout!

Nice share courtesy of radarsock. Aroma is brandy, cocoa, figs or raisins, some light roasty coffee and ash. Taste is sweet and loaded with dark fruits which i think are brought out by the cognac barrels with a finish of burned coffee. Nice beer.

12oz bottle. Thanks RadarSock
A - Almost pitch-black. minor head forms on a swirl.
S - Nose is semi-sweet chocolate, roasted vanilla and caramel candies. Lots of coconut and vanilla
T - Incredibly burnt. Really sticky with candies and just a freaking butt load of charcoal mixed with a vanilla oak barrel.
M - Sily smooth, sweet and sticky-icky.
O - I like this one. Not sure if it’s a top 50 stout.

Heftiges, dickes, starkes und vollaromatisches Bier. Pflaumen mit geröstetem Malz, teilweise überreife Früchte, dazu ein starker Alkoholabgang und eine beruhigende Wärme. Nicht schlecht !
