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 Ė it must taste rare!

Bottle. Pours black with chocolatey brown head. Aroma is chocolate, bitter and coffe. Taste is more of the same, quite bitter, really solid chocolate. Somewhat boozy.

Pour is motor oil, finger of tan head. Nose is very milky, roast, smoke?, some coffee and milk chocolate. Taste starts off very milky, roasty, milk chocolate, with dark fruits, a touch of coffee, char, and finishes rich dark chocolate. Sweet but not overly, very creamy thick mouthfeel, don't taste the booze. This is outstanding. I don't like being overwhelmed with coffee in my stouts, and this one finds a superb balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An incredibly rich, incredibly powerful beer. Lots of coffee with a healthy amount of dark fruit to give it a nice complexity. Tried at Tedís taphouse in 2014.

Poured as taster at local shop. Pours a rich dark color with brown head. This is thick and rich. Smells of fresh ground coffee (dark beans), toffee, caramel and chocolate. Taste is smooth, and while coffee is there, itís not overpowering and doesnít taste like 3 day old coffee. It is thick and rich on the palate and nicely blends flavors. It was so good and well-balanced that the wife liked it and she usually hates coffee and hence most stouts. Will re-rate when I drink a full bottle from cellar.

Bottle bought at Champanes, this impy had a dark brown-black pour and gave about a one finger dark brown colored head that receded to a thin layer with a couple of small open areas and nice ring, when swirled this beer looked thick, it left generous dark bubbled spots and small rings of lacing that eventually slid off the sides of the glass, the bottom of the bottle had a wide ring of spotted sediment that slowly swirled away when the bottle was tipped, the nose had intense roasted malt with burnt and/or smoke notes, some dark chocolate and coffee, and molasses and dark brown sugar sweetness, it had flavors of roasted malt with some coffee and dark chocolate, molasses and a little dark brown sugar, toasted dark bread notes in the background, the finish had roasted malt bitterness that balanced the sweetness in this beer, the roasted malt bitterness lingered on the palate, the mouth feel was creamy and coated the tongue, it was medium full on the palate and had soft to average carbonation, there was a touch of alcohol warmth on the throat after the sip, this beer had a very intense roasted malt nose and flavor, the roasted malt was out front and nice, I liked it, I found the roasted malt astringency and burnt like nuances to balance the sweetness, this was a very nice drink, if you like a big roasted malt impy, you will enjoy this drink.

Thick black pour with a nice dark tan head. Nose of chocolate, malt and dark fruit. Really nice flavor profile in this, skewing towards the sweet side, but saved with a nice bit of alcohol. Yummy!

Black, very rich nose. Lots of smoke, sugars, light fruitiness...intense almost bbq sauce character. So rich, syrupy character. Intense, maybe w/o nuance. So much sugar.

650ml bottle courtesy fo clt85. Thanks. Pours a dense black color with a small brown head that slowly recedes to a fine film. The aroma is robust with chocolates, molasses, raisins, dates and a bit o coffee. The taste features dark bitter chocolates, chocolate syrup, coffee and burnt toast. The palate is full, smooth and creamy with soft carbonation. Finishes long and dry. Overall: The perfect beer to drink on a Sunday! and, Iíll probably go to hell for saying that.

Bottle. Pours pitch black with an unreal, large creamy chocolatey dark brown head. Aroma is rich, sweet chocolatey roasty. Dark roasty malty. Caramel. Milk chocolate. Dark chocolate. Hints of dark fruitiness. A sugariness that must be the muscovado. Creamy coffee. Big full body. Lusciously creamy. Smooooooth. Finishes sweet roasty chocolatey, very mild roasty bitterness, pleasant warming form alcohol but no booze. Very Sweet. Exceeded expectations. Decadent. Delicious. Amazing.
