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 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, there’s 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.

Bottle shared by Marcus. Aroma of treacle and chocolate. Lots more I can’t parse. Med++body. Flavor is chocolate, treacle, vanilla, spice. Heat is only an issue in the gullet. Great drinker - make that sipper. It’s really complex.

Bottle into a tulip. Pours black, with a moderate brown head. Nose is coffee, chocolate, and caramel, and the taste follows. A hint of booze on the finish. Nice long finish without any stickyness. Delicious.

j12601 (9526) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 12, 2016
On tap at Underground. Pours a deep black with a thin tan head. Warm roast and alcohol on the nose, tobacco and leathery, coffee. Thicker side of medium, big roast and warning alcohol early. Cocoa, toasty, thick and full of chocolate. Sweetness gets into some fruity notes with more roast. Huge, yet quite drinkable.
