Nice coffee roast chocolate aroma. Pours deep black with ring of tan head. Roasty, syrupy sweet with an excellent lingering coffee finish.

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 !

Pitch black, smells of wood and cognac with notes of dates and prunes. taste is similar. Hides the alcohol pretty well. Excellent beer.

Bottle #21. 330 mL bottle courtesy of Tyson, served in a snifter. Pours deep chestnut with a small tan head that fades to a few bubbles. The nose has huge molasses, whiskey, oak, and vanilla, along with soy sauce, subtle smoke, chocolate and espresso. The flavour is medium sweet with roasted malts, molasses, whiskey, oak and vanilla. Some tobacco comes through towards the end. The finish is long and malty with whiskey notes, molasses and oak. On the palate it is full in body with a silky smooth texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a truly awesome imperial stout. Easily one of the best. Powerful yet incredibly sophisticated. Amazing. 2014-03-08

Bottle from trade with BenH - thank you so much, mate! The beer pours out in a deep dark colour with low head and smooth body. Awesome aroma of malt, chocolate and prunes. Even better taste of dark prunes, dark ripe berries, chocolate, dried fruits, plums, coffee and malt. Very sweet finish of dried plums and malt. A beer that is no beer. A beer that stays in your mind and that you long to be in your glass forever. Wonderful,perfect, delicious!

Beautiful whiskey nose and caramel, with roast,, dark chocolate , butter,,alcohol,fruity phenols and bananas. Black as night with a Lacey dark tan head. Low carbonation . A whammy of flavours with huge roasty malt, big chocolate cake, fruitcake, monster caramel,buttery smoky Whisky-like,and delicious . Whaps you in the face like a giant brick. Very possibly the best beer in the world along with beer geek weasel. Wow I wish I had brewed this. But I digress . Malt that fills your taste buds. Whisky flavour that cannot be duplicated.. Fought yeast with alcohol notes and perfect balance.. If this were heroin, I would become a junkie!
