2004 bottle - Pours very dark with no real head to it. The aroma has thick smooth chewy roast, soy sauce, chocolate, molasses, dark caramel with a minor amount of heat for the alcohol contained. It has a thick smooth body with light soft carbonation. The flavor starts with smooth chocolaty roast, dark caramel, minor soy sauce, vanilla and light heat. The finish has more soy sauce and heat. Really nice & aged like a champ.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
2013 bottle, aged in my basement for about 18 months. Very dark brown (nearly black) pour, thin mocha head, decent lacing. Vanilla, cocoa, hints of licorice. Dark fruit, thinly-veiled bourbon. Incredibly smooth, almost silky, mouthfeel. Starts off sweet, ends on a bitter note, full of alcohol. This stout lives up to the hype.

Bottle, thanks guys for sharing. Slightly dirty black pour with almost no head. Really intense stuff, syrupy, sweet vanilla, char, some coffee, licorice and fairly boozy.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Incredible as always. Pitch dark, minimal sustaining cap. Aroma is heavy dark fruit, vanilla, chocolate, and satan's own jizz giving it an extra sweetness. Excellently balanced sweetness and bitterness, leaving the mouth silky and finishing with a lasting medium dryness.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Steve’s in Fitchburg. 12/11/2013 bottle date, cellar aged 4 months. Pours cola colored with a tan head leaving streaky lacing. Aroma has rich roast, rum raisin, some grape and some molasses with a touch of chocolate. Taste is of initially soy sauce, chocolate, caramel, some teriyaki, definite alcohol, and some roast. Strong tangy alcohol presence. Rich, somewhat roasty, and alcoholly, with a tang of spices. Full bodied. Finishes tangy sweet, with some bitterness, but with alcohol. Take 7% out and the brew misses nothing, but stops the detraction the alcohol causes. 14.4
