rudolf (2326) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 23, 2014
tap @ Blue Monk. Black, rich mokah head. Nose is burnt malt, some cardboard, cocoa, super rich fig, umami/soy, chocolate covered cherries. Flavor is burnt malt, big caramel, some oxidation, cherries, raisin, umami/soy. Big burnt bittersweet cherries, raisin & chocolate in the finish. Nice enough but the oxidation/cardboard really detracts.

Bottle. Man, this is basically a thinner Expedition Stout. Loads of that dark fruit, tobacco, and earthy coffee that make expedition so great. Does not linger as much and is not nearly as creamy, but it’s damn good.

jkwood04 (3437) - Connecticut, USA - APR 22, 2014
12oz bottle in a teku. Pours black with a dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee, hints of dark fruits, and some dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Smooth texture. A solid beer.

Lukaduke (1757) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 17, 2014
Pours a deep burnt umber color with a finger of khaki foam. Lots of rich dark bakers chocolate, dark fruits, some earthy ash, tar, some lingering roastiness and bitter coffee. Solid offering, touch of boozy heat but not overly hot considering abv !

DuffMan (6172) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
Bottle, shared during our epic night at MicroBar in Reykjavik, with Arnie and Stein. Hearty near-black pour. Sweet coffee and cocoa aroma. Silky smooth palate, filled with flavourful dark malts, fresh ground espresso beans, figs, and cocoa. Not even a hint of the 11.5% ABV, so smooth and rich.

MrFecesious (800) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 15, 2014
Small bottle. Pours a very dark brown with minimal light brown skiff. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, raisin, prune. Taste is subtly sweet with a strong bitterness. Chewy. Low carbonation. Wickedly dry finish.

Bottle. Opaque black liquid with small to medium tan head. Aroma of licorice, coffee, chocolate, dried fruit and raw sugar. Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of licorice, dried fruit, raw sugar and coffee. Full bodied with low to medium carbonation. Quite nice.

Very interesting beer overall. The label is one of the worst I’ve ever seen. The pour is a pure black with a gloopy, viscous consistency and a dark tan head that fades. The nose is surprisingly fruity and sweet smelling with a balancing roast character of espresso and milk chocolate. The first sip has a lactose like sweetness and accompanying fruit flavours. The finish is appropriately bitter and robust with a big roast, warm alcohol on the finish and a dusting of espresso and cocoa. A unique brew...

Nice beer, great aroma fresh off the pour, mellows with standing. Vanilla, caramel on the nose, smooth, nice thick mouth feel.
