COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all – it must taste rare!

Pours thick black with mocha head. Smells of chocolate, rasin, malt and coffee. Nice chewy solid body taste of choclate, malt and coffee but very well balanced. Great Imperial stout with bold yet balanced flavoring.

VT (1666) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 13, 2013
330 ml bottle shared with Tom and chums. Pours black with a short lasting brown head. Aroma is hazelnut, chocolate, coffee. Flavor is lots of dark, pitch black chocolate, coffee, hazelnut, roasted malt, brown sugar. Finish is very strong, sustained bitterness that perfectly balances all the sugar previously encountered. Lingering coffee and chocolate. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel, weak carbonation. Very solid brew.

Bottle (330 ml). Thanks to Kevin and Steve who both sent me one of these! Pitch black with a medium sticky/oily brown head and some lacing. Aroma is decadent with tons of chocolate/fudge, burst of caramel and toffee, lactose sweetness, coffee and light dark fruits. Taste is moderately sweet (not cloying) with dark chocolate (but also milk chocolate presence), caramel and toffee, lactose sweetness and light dark fruits. Warming alcohol (but in a good way, no burning). Full bodied. Creamy/velvety mouthfeel. Low to moderate carbonation. Very complex RIS! So much fudge/fun! Decadent and really enjoyable. Not overdone. Good balance. Wow!
