4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark black with hints of brown only on the edges when held to light. The head is surprisingly light and tan and it is thin, short lived, and leaves some decent lacing.
The smell is imposing, highly fragrant, and pungent on the nose. There is a cornucopia of sweet and dark scents. There are hints of rum, dark fruits, and a ton of carmally sugar. The alcohol is easily detected.
The mouthfeel is not as syrupy as expected. THe malts are sweet, fruity just explosive. The alcohol burns but that’s okay.
This is a big ass brew but it is fantastic, an explosion of flavor, I prefer it over the 120 minute IPA, it is sweet but not overly and sweet in the right way, it works perfectly with the style.

Massive. Tastes like a like a pile of raisins. Super boozy and cocoa maybe. This one will put you down. Tranquilizer.

2010 bottle. Pours black as night with little to no head. Carbonation is fine though, and it tastes just like it should, super smooth. Plenty of black liquorice, caramel, chocolate and raisin. At 18%, it’s crazy how the booze are totally a non-factor, until you reach the end of the glass.
