12oz bottle. Poured black with no head and no carbonation. The aroma is of sweet dark fruit, raisins, figs and dates, nice malty background . The flavor pretty much the same with the sweetness of the malt and the flavor of the dark fruits. Pretty good beer.

gorlandi (68) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2012
Pours a dark brown/black with a nice tan head into a snifter. Rich aroma with a taste to match. The taste is very deep and smoky coffee with hints of chocolate and vanilla. Highly reccomended if you can find it.

Sammy (8850) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2012
Enjoyed on tap as part of the Darkside flight at Bruery Provisions. A decent stout but just OK for an imperial stout. Sheet of lace, dark appearance, OK mouthfeel and drinkability.Lots of roast and burnt parts.

andyhwcinc (1493) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2012
Enjoyed on tap as part of the Darkside flight at Bruery Provisions in Orange, CA. Appearance pitch black with rich tan head that laces to the glass, looks oatmeal like. Aroma of pure dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, vanilla, and decadence. Taste goes down way too smooth for a 10% abv, huge cappuccino/coffee notes, very rich, very chocolatey, like Rogue Chocolate Stout but more potent.  Bravo, hats off to the brewer on this one!

KnutAlbert (6227) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 19, 2012
On tap at Schouskjelleren. Smooth, deceivingly easy drinking, despite the abv. Spices, coffee, soot. Long log fire aftertaste.

TheBeerGod (5319) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Bottle. Pitch black pour with a short, dense, frothy brown head. Aroma is big roasted malt, bitter coffee, ash and licorice. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, licorice, molasses, light vanilla, hops, and chocolate notes. Body is medium-full with a bubbly but creamy carbonation. Moderate chewiness to this as well. Ends with more roasted malt, licorice, coffee, Thin Mints, hops, and soft ash.

reggiedunlop (3185) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2012
Pours black with ruby hues and a HUGE mocha head...excellent lacing and retention. Aroma has bitter bakers chocolate, faint dark fruit, mild coffee and a slight note of smoke. Flavor has dark fruit and ashy smoke followed up with molasses and bitter dark chocolate...very roasty...maybe a tobacco note. Mouthfeel is creamy and thick with a bitter, roasty finish that warms and lingers with a burnt chocolate note.

TheEpeeist (3384) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2012
11.2 oz bottle. Inky brown with a formidable beige head. Nose is chocolate, cola, wood, hay and raisin. Medium body with scrubbing fizzy carb. Taste is dark chocolate, aspirin and Greek coffee gradually getting bitter with grapefruit, pine and rabe. Finishes with hints of mint and licorice. Extreme but i could easily do another if not so expensive.

Leafs93 (1729) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Pours deep black with a deep dark brown creamy head. Aroma is chocolate, roast and coffee. Taste is bittersweet with the roast and chocolate melding together very nicely. Mouth feel is thinner then it looks, but it is very smooth and easy to drink. Some warming on the finish.
