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!

tightslice (817) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 5, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2016 Can from Beltramo’s in Menlo Park. Too many things to say here. In honor of Beltramo’s closing, I’d like to offer up this beer as a shining example of a true Imperial Stout. Aroma is beef jerky, smoked meats, coffee, chocolate, bourbon, liqueur. Taste is a cocoa nib crusted steak soaked in beef jerky juice. This beer is everything you thought it could be.

Changed (462) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JUN 2, 2016
Pint can. After enjoying an IBB, I quickly decided that I had drunk these in the wrong order. This one pours black, again, with a small brown head, some lacing. Aroma is brown sugar, coffee, chocolate. Malty chocolate, some slightly vinous flavor emerging. Dry mouthfeel, long, lasting flavor that tends towards bitterness. Excellent beer, it definitely tastes rare. Yum yum.
