COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“When I copied the famous Even More Jesus, I had to ask myself as an artist, why am I doing this? I didn’t honestly know. It was just an instinct about beer as pure form… in a sense this stout is like a metaphor for freedom - the sum of all the beauty that surrounds me and my perfect contemporary existence.”

Hoozah, I love a good stout. Oil black. Thick tan lacing. Coffee. Slight nuttiness. Hot aftertaste (11 abv) but not overpowering.

superspak (2690) - Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2014
12 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 4/16/2014. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1-2 finger dense dark brown head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, molasses, raisin, prune, tobacco, licorice, light char/smoke, and roast/smokey earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and fruity/earthy notes; with great strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, toast, dark bread, tobacco, raisin, prune, licorice, char, light smoke, and roast/smokey earthiness. Good amount of roast/char bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, toast, dark bread, tobacco, raisin, prune, licorice, char, light smoke, and smoke/roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity and robustness of dark/roasted malt and fruity/earthy flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and full bodied; with a very creamy and fairly slick/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is an absolutely fantastic imperial stout. All around incredible complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and fruity/earthy flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. An incredibly delicious offering.

Bottle st Sergio’s. This is a huge stout! Pours a pitch black with a thin chocolate head. Huge aromas of coffee, charred wood, and booze, and deep cherries. Flavors of deep roasted malts, coffee, burnt caramel and toffee. Medium thick mouthfeel with a bitter finish.

ansalon (1500) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2014
SWBF 2014. Pours black with almost no head. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla, coffee, muscovado sugar, roasted nuts and caramel. Just a lovely aroma that sucks you right in. Taste is quite sweet though not too sweet with some nicely balanced roasted oak and vanilla notes and some caramel depths that also reveals some coffee and chocolate notes. Mouthfeel is very smooth and velvety with almost no carbonation. Great stuff!

jenhesteer (234) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2014
Bottle tasted at Cannibal, NYC. Boozy, coffee nose. Very active beer, great head. So much so, in fact, that the bartender poured me another bottle after the head overflowed. Unbelievable chocolate taste. Like a mocha. I can’t tell it’s 12% ABV on the tongue. The smoothness and rich palate, achieved without the syrupy consistency of some barrel-aged stouts, is something to behold. Given the wonderful head and activity, as well as the balanced sweetness and flavors this beer has, I have to say, hands down, this is the greatest stout I have ever had.

Huhzubendah (2618) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Inky black body with a quarter inch of viscous beige head. Big time Danish roast aroma. Chocolates, dark fruit, a hint of char. Thick and palate coating. Rich and full bodied. Dark fruits, dark chocolates, and a delicate, gentle warming finish. A graceful and elegant beer. These brothers can sure brew some fine tasting stouts.

Pitch black color with brown compact head, disappearing quickly. The aroma is delicate, there is roasted malt, cocoa nibs, dark chocolate, and a hint of spices. Perfect body strength, round and smooth mouthfeel, with moderate sweetness; gorgeous dark chocolate flavor, enhanced by a dash of spices (maybe chili peppers) and avoiding the liquorice trap. Dynamic and fresh; layered sensations. Despite the size, it’s very drinkable, extra appreciation for that.
World class Imperial Stout, a real treat tonight.
