Bigmmartin (603) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Received in a trade but I forget who was awesome enough to send me this bottle. I’ll update if I remember. Either way, thanks alot! This bottle was shared with AndyReynolds and Ewestern.
I had read many mixed reviews before acquiring this bottle, so I wasn’t too sure what to expect going into it. However, it took nothing more than the first sip to shatter the idea of any negativity surrounding this brew. Pretty much straight up awesome in every aspect. The combination of the four base stouts really lends to a unique complexity. I know it doesn’t contain any Kate the Great, but as I drank my glass, that’s what it really reminded me of. It seemed to have a lot of that chocolate graham cracker and roasted malt quality that I remember from my KtG sample a few years ago.

I fell victim to the hype and love this beer.

Boutip (5065) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with black chocolate and quite a bit of residuals sugar notes is quite pleasant. Taste is a nice mix between some roasted malt with lots of black chocolates notes and some residual sugar notes and subtle coffee notes. Body is full with nice creamy texture and good carbonation with surprisingly no alcohol that is easily apparent. Way too easy to drink with just the right level of complexity.

umich03jm (2551) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown pour with very little head. Sugary aroma of caramel, chocolate, red wine, and some dark fruit. Tastes too sugary sweet for me and seems a bit oxidized. Big chocolate syrup and dark fruit but also some cardboard and stale coffee. Medium body. I think I would’ve liked this better a couple years ago but I still think it would’ve been too sweet then too.

Lets go to the Jockey Box
what next?
Fred’s Softball, shared by friend, not in dining room, for make the taste!
Pours black with a good head and decent lacing on the glass.

The aroma offers a bunch of stuff, raisins, chocolate, port wine, rum... booziness. It works together nicely for sure.

The flavor offers sweetness & richness with a low level of bitterness. Most bitterness offered comes in the form of roasty malt and coffee character both of which are modest players in the ball game. It’s chocolaty, it’s got a lot of dark fruit and a good bit of booziness.

My review makes it sound like I don’t like it, which isn’t true at all. It’s huge, and it’s fun, not sure I’d want a lot of it... but I sure do like it real good.

Countbeer (5134) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2015
Bomber: Shared with Iluvatarmilan: Served in a Chouffe glass at 13 degrees Celsius: Black beer with a medium sized beige brown head. Aroma is just like a BIPA and some slight butterscotch hints. Flavours of deep dark roast, soy, bitters, mocha, dark chocolate, some liquorice, chalk, cacoa, some hops, quite refreshing for an Imperial Stout! Aftertaste is a mix of liquorice, roast, dark chocolate, hops, bitters.. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, close to full bodied.
