Gusgus (235) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle. Medium to low carbonation. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, slight burnt/toasted oats. Hint of citrus and red fruits. Taste is rich and complex mix of same flavors as aroma. Slightly sour citrus bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. Alcohol apparent but not dominating. Slick and oily mouthfeel with less than average carbonation. Overall very balanced and nice. Like a classic British Double Brown Stout, but with a modern hint of citrus hops.

wchesser (1514) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 29, 2013
’12 I think. Dark slightly translucent on edges. Persistent head. Nose of espresso, dried fig. Leads very sweet, then bitter burnt coffee kicks in and finishes incredibly long with a lot of raisiny sweetness and coffee bitterness. Really nice savory qualities. Loooong. Great interplay of sweet and bitter.

NikkTwist (2046) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2014 Draft at Monks in May 2013, then again in December 2014 at Good Dog. Similar both times. Nearly opaque brown pour. Large foamy brown head. Some light lace. Dark cocoa. Burnt coffee. Liquorice. Tootsie Roll. Burnt marshmallow. Cigarettes. Plastic vinyl in the nose. Body feels thinner than expected. Bit like a sweet black ash tray.

Bottle shared with Yanick on Christmas eve. Pours black with brown head. Nose/taste of roast chocolate, cocoa, black licorice, vanilla and burnt wood. Body a little on the thinner side for an imperial, but overall a very solid stout with a heavy roast character. Hints of Christmas spices in the background.

after4ever (6731) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAY 21, 2013
330. Pours jet black with a dense and creamy tan head that falls quickly away to a thin ring. Huge roasty ashy nose, just enough sweetness there to balance. Creamy thick body, soft carb. Super roasty dry mid palate, sweetness mainly in a baking chocolate way. Long dry finish. Very nice. Like a bigger, tidier old raspy. Still very approachable.

330. Pours a murky near-black with a dense and creamy burnt-tan head. Big forward nose of char, black liquorice, smoky notes, and roasty dark black bread toast. Sticky thick body with soft carb. Anise, toast, and roast on the mid palate along with some bitter chocolate. Dark, heavy finish.
