rbrazell (1701) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle from CBX. Black pour with a creamy brown head. Aroma of bitter dark chocolate, roasted malts, licorice, nuts and hints of dark fruits. Heavy roasted malts, dark fruits, nuttiness, licorice and a lot of bitterness throughout with a big dryness and medium heavy body. Not bad but definitely a winter sipper.

wvhoran (355) - Tasmania, - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a nice lasting brown head. Aroma is of heavy roast malt, toasted malt, chocolate. The flavour is fairly sweet with a heavily roasted finish. Lots of molasses flavours, chocolate, and a strong bitterness. Body could be even fuller. Lovely.

radiomgb (2320) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2014
330ml bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York. Black in colour with a thin tan head, light lacing. The aroma is very roasty with burnt malts and chocolate. The flavour is roasty upfront, moderate sweetness, bitter chocolate, alcohol and liquorice. Finishes long, very roasty, warm, bitter.

Pailhead (5036) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Courtesy of Ron

Bottle: The aroma consists of big molasses, chocolate, tobacco, smoke, vanilla, cinnamon, and a hint of dark fruits. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights. It has a large tan head that eventually fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with moderate milk chocolate, lighter molasses, and a touch of caramel. The finish has light-moderate roasted malt, light espresso, cinnamon, vanilla, and a touch of smoke. It’s medium-full bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat creamy mouthfeel.

tectactoe (2190) - Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Ron. Thick, black pour with a mocha foam that settles to a thin film & moderate collar. Nice aroma of heavily roasted coffee & burnt brown sugar, charred nuts, a touch of underlying sweet creaminess, & some deep, dark cocoa. A little thin on the mouth, possibly overcarbonated. Flavors of espresso, rich & roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate malt, dry cocoa bean, a touch of cream, toasted brown sugar, & plenty of lingering, residual sweetness. Nice transition from roasted to sweet by the finish. Nice.

slowrunner77 (6025) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 26, 2014
"light in body for 10% but smooth as glass. chocolate, hops, roast, fairly sweet flavor. seems like this could very well be the base beer, or very similar to the base of Soft Dookie. Well done."

MacBoost (1353) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2014
4 pack of Jesus Juice. Pours thick and black like the handle on this lambic basket:

Yeah. Smells like tobacco spit and used motor oil. Skoal Classic Long Cut, to be exact. Oily and slick. Taste is semi dry and lightly bitter. Pretty well attenuated and unadulterated. Flavors of cigarette butts, tar, black patent malt. Heavily roasted. Slightly minty. Very, very well executed. This is a world class beer.

StoutHead (685) - DENMARK - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a small short-lived brown head. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste is of roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruits and a hint of vanilla and bourbon. Sweet and roasty. Low carbonation but I can’t figure out the body - it seems both full and a bit watery at the same time. Alcohol well-hidden. Well, not very complex or memorable - I’d call it solid and above average but not more than that.

miquelcrush (1458) - Granollers, SPAIN - SEP 17, 2014
Cervesa amb molt aroma a cafè i a cacau, també se li nota molt l’alcohol, recomanable prendre amb calma perquè evoluciona molt bé. Cerveza con mucho aroma a café y a cacao, también se le nota mucho el alcohol, recomendable tomar con calma porque evoluciona muy bien.
