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!

Bomber from Riley’s in Madison while flying through town. Shared with ck1 and my other brother during family holiday weekend. Huge foamy pour (it was on its side for the bulk of a day a few days earlier) that left a great smell in the kitchen. Lots of fudge, some soy, espresso - very heavy roast with caramel. Quite rich, just as all Evil Twin, overpriced. 15.1

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours as black as black can be with a wickedly dark tan head. Nose shows dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted coffee and some vanilla. Taste is creamy chocolate, espresso, vanilla and a slight smokiness. Wow goes down incredibly smooth, can hardly taste the booze at all! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wvhoran (389) - Tasmania, - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle, Frenchman’s Cap with James and James. Totally black with a roasty-looking dark brown head. The aroma is heavy roast malts, dark chocolate, fruity (prunes, dates) and soy sauce. The flavour is sweet initially with molasses, dark dark chocolate, roast malts, a thick and oily mouthfeel. Molasses bomb. A salty bitter finish.

22oz bottle pours dark oil black with a finger of tan head. Nose is boozy, brownie batter, chocolate, dark fruit, coffee. Nice creamy mouthfeel but just a hair thin on the back end. Taste is sweet rich viscous bitter chocolate, roasty coffee, hershey syrup, double fudge brownie, booze. Finish is sweet chocolate syrup, coffee, cake, boozy, sticky.

On tap at Beercraft. Pours a thick black color with some dark brown head. Burnt toffee flavor from start to finish. Mild sweetness. The burnt flavor lingers afterward.

Draft at Edmunds Oast. Pitch black oil pour with a thick brown head. Goddamn, that smells nice. Big fudgy chocolate, roasted malts, devils food cake, with touches of earth and coffee. Flavor is very similar with a very thick chewy body. Reminds me of Marshal Zhukov a lot with less radon and smoke and just a touch less thick. Still fucking great.
