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.

Pours an oily pitch black with a bubbly brown head that disappears quickly, and lots of alcohol legs. Tons of alcohol on the nose, nice roasty coffee, caramel, brown sugar, milky chocolate, some vanilla, a nice nutty characteristic, and a light hint of oak. Really tasty, thereís lots of cinnamon, brown sugar, caramel, hazelnut, really roasty coffee with lots of cream, really nice milk chocolate, a touch of vanilla, and a bitter earthy finish. Soooo tasty, and much smoother than the smell led me to believe. Very creamy and not a ton of super dark bitter flavors. Hard to believe that this is 17.2% just by the taste. Yummy.

Pours a black thick oil. Small dark tan head that dissipates quickly. Strong coffee, cocoa and marshmallow aroma. Amazingly smooth stout. Strong roasted coffee and chocolate. Marshmallow and a lovely alcohol warmth finishes. Amazing beer.

Pours like used motor oil, perhaps the most viscous beer Iíve ever seen. Small tan head.

Aromas of marshmallow, some light smoke, light roast, whole lotta chocolate. No hops or spice detected. Taste is sweet and bitter from the malt. Flavors of pretty much everything - chocolate milkshake, coco puffs, vanilla, some light nuttiness, roasted malts, twigs and berries, ash, cigars. Wow. Pretty intense and impressive, but the most impressive part is that this beer drinks like its 9%abv. Really. Itís that silky smooth and of course, sweet as fuck. Finishes like a chocolate doughnut with just the slightest hint of spicy pepper. If this beer were wine barrel fermented with brett for a few years and completely dried out it would be perfect. But as it sits, itís just a touch too sweet. Not hot, but sweet. Good effort though, and Iím glad I pounded the entire beer in the time it took to write this review. This beer is fucken great for fat bozos like me! Thanks, Jeppe!

arminjewell (6156) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, thick oily black pour with dark brown head, lasts as a thin rim around the glass, no lacing, but not expected for the ABV. Aroma is surprisingly mellow, some molasses, toffee, dark chocolate, brownie, fudge like notes, some slight coffee, hints of a nutty note in there as well. Taste is a mix of dark chocolate, brownie batter, hints of fudge, vanilla, molasses, some slight coffee in there but pretty mild, some nutty notes, very slight hint of booze but really not much, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter. I actually donít mind drinking this whole thing, and the flavors are pretty nice for what it is.

Bottle @ GT Catís Cabana. Thanks, GT. Jet black, highly viscous, and a tiny tan head. Roast, ash, and burnt sugar on the nose. Lots of molasses, coffee, and vanilla. Tons of grape jelly, some smoke, and a slight spiciness. Thereís a weird savory character to the taste. Itís also intensely sweet and sugary. Tons of vanilla, brown sugar, and grape jelly. Some coffee and roasted malt bitterness. A bit of smoke, spice, and green pepper.

Bottle that I have been a bit intimidated to open due to the abv but what the heck it has been a rough day so I poured it into a 24 oz glass and we will see where this takes me. Pour has a black color with a thick one finger brown head that slowly fell away. Aroma has big rich malt, chewy chocolate, oak, marshmallow, coffee, and light spice. Mouth feel is thick with big coating and the carbonation is there though it is a big beast. Flavor throws out huge malts, chocolate, hazelnut, coffee, super rich and pushing the limits for sure. It catches up with you quickly.

At my place over an empty pool with group. Pours black no head. Aroma is black pepper, coffee, soft booze, dark malt. Taste is very nice, somewhat smooth, very well hidden booze, I could pound all day, if I wanted to get shit faced I would pound a bottle on a hot day and love it.

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
