COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a really big beer and we wanted to put it in small bottles, but the two bozos were so fat they couldn’t fit on the label. Enjoy this rich, ridiculous and screwball-ish Imperial Stout with hints of: molasses, lactose, chocolate, almond, hazelnut, vanilla bean, cinnamon, oak spiral, chili, marshmallow, muscovado sugar, chesnut and coffee. Made for Bozos.

Pours a dark oil like black and tan head. Coffee, cinnamon, oak, and biscuit on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with just a little heat.

> Green coffee and paper disaster

[ Bottle ][ Texas Liquor ][ 651mL ][ $20 ][ Stemless Wine Taster ][ 4/26/14 ]
>> Inky pour, low red foam. Nose is jalapeno, green spicy coffee, fumey alcohol, soy. Taste is extreme paper, palate destroying, really rough coffee. Not even sticky sweet or boozy, just so much paper. Mild coconut oil in mouthfeel, but finish is devastating.

>!< extreme paper

Bottle thanks to Rainer. Pours a dark brown with beige head. The aroma is a stong roast, dark chocolate, and oak. Thick mouthfeel with rich dark chocolate and roast with light smoke. Very good.

GenDV138 (1785) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2014
22 ounce bottle poured into a Belgian snifter. Pours jet black with a motor oily consistency. Half a finger of tan head that recedes into a ring fairly quickly. No lacing. Aromas of big roasty coffee, dark chocolate, caramel. Tasting notes of coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, marshmallow, some booze. Lots of flavors going on. Full body with a dry finish. carbonation, oily thick mouthfeel. Very rich, surprisingly drinkable for 17.2% ABV.

Brouwerij (942) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle thanks to Alemax. Pours very dark brown with fine light brown head. Settles quickly with no lace, some noticeable legs. Aroma is roasted malt, caramelized sugar, dark chocolate, mild chili heat, some sweet and fruity alcohol tones. Opens up significantly as it warms. Flavor is chocolate, toasted malt, toffee with a roasted, nutty, chocolate finish, and roasted, chocolate, caramel, chili spice aftertaste. Much richer as it warms, more chilies come through. Alcohol is fairly well hidden. Soft carbonation, medium body and smooth texture, mildly warm finish.

Smell of coffee, vanilla bean and chocolate Taste of cocoa nibs, vanilla, cinnamon, brown sugar and molasses. Really solid

Bule (862) - California, USA - MAR 15, 2014
22o bottle pours a thick dark brown color with some brown head. Lots of carbonation for such a high alcohol content. Lots of flavor of coffee and molasses. All come together very mild and easy going. Not much bitterness for the amount of coffee. Spectacular.

RobertDale (3705) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAR 10, 2014
22 ounce bottle. Pours black with a decent brown head. Aroma of burnt coffee and malt. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and spice. Not much chili or alcohol in the taste. Enjoyable. Hides the alcohol content well.

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Dark brown pour with a brown head. The aroma and flavor have a ton of coffee and roasted malt notes in them. The flavor also has some big chocolate undertones. Each drink of the beer reveals different flavor notes, with the coffee and chocolate really melding well together and making this a very enjoyable stout. There is certainly some alcohol present but it doesn’t taste at all like a 17.2 percent beer. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice stout.
