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 couldnít 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.

22 oz bottle shared by ebone1988 with Gus and myself. Thanks! The pour is a lighter black with a thinner khaki ring of head that falls down, no lace. The aroma is big on the licorice and booze. There is a good sugar presence and a lactose as well. It's got a sweetness that is almost too much. There must be a LOT of oak spirals in there, because there is a huge woodiness. The flavor is pretty decent. There is a lot of chocolate and roast with a light vanilla and a huge woodiness. I like everything that's happening. The licorice and malts are heavy. But it's got a nice balance. The mouth feel is a little light and well carbonated. The aftertaste is roasty and chocolatey and all kinds of complex. The woodiness is very prevalent and I'm not sure I like it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ratman197 (13248) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2016
On tap at Hops and Pie poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lasting brown head. Aromas of roasted malt, bakers cocoa, earthiness and light coffee. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of dark chocolate, roasted malt, cinnamon and a hint of coffee with a smooth lingering chocolate finish.

Advocate_Ames (570) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2015
Pours very dark with a mocha foam head that hugs my glass. The aroma is very complex. There is molasses, tobacco, cocoa, pepper, vanilla, cinnamon, and roasted dark malt presence. The flavor is of molasses, milk sugar, booze, peppers, mild coffee, vanilla, a blended taste of hazelhut, almonds, and cinnamon. I was surprised to find this drinkable. It effects the palate but has a pleasant roasty finishing taste. I thought this might be similar to Darklord but in fact its way more drinkable and not as overly sweet. Overall I enjoyed this. Its worth getting to share with a friend.

Pours black with a small but decently well retained head and some lacing on the glass. The aroma is just hugely boozy with a bund of vanilla and dark chocolate, Itís got some coffee and molasses.

The flavor has lots of coffee and vanilla. Itís sweet, geeze it almost tastes like a classy ass Kahlula. Itís boozy, roasty, & has some dark fruit and molasses going on in the background.

Fun.... weird-ish... but fun.

Bottle... Ink black pour with a small, creamy, nicely tanned head. The aroma is huge, featuring a blend of ethanol, blackstrap molasses, liquid fudge and jalapenos. Ultra Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and adequate carbonation. The flavor is burnt and bitter, offering fudge, blackstrap molasses and charcoal, flanked by a comfortable level of chili pepper and alcohol warmth that lingers a short while after each sip.
