Bottle from Bottle Baron. Black body with a thin beige head that fades. No lacing. Aroma of plum, treacle and liquorice. Flavour of blueberries, tar and soy sauce. Medium body with a slick texture. Soft fizz. Sharp and tangy.

Drank 09-09-16. Nice beer! Very good combination of porter-like thickness, with a good amount of sweetness. Really good.

badhack (520) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 7, 2016
Overpowering booze, syrup, brown sugar, bitter chocolate and vanilla. Not enough malt to back this up. Just gets stronger as it warms. The beer is seriously hopped and won’t let you down there. It’s a chocolate chip cookie with rum and hops.

Echon (370) - Århus, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2016
Black. Big aroma and flavour, with caramel malt, chocolate, roasted barley and alcohol. Very sweet, pungent and spicy, with a dry, bitter and alcoholic finish. Full body. Overall, a good imperial porter, although I am somewhat ambivalent about it. Sure, this is full-bodied and tasty, but it is also too sweet and pungent. The balance is way off. Great at first, but it soon becomes cloying and I did not really feel like finishing the bottle.

dmac (5603) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 18, 2016
12oz bottle via 4pack from Spirits Jackson. Poured a viscous deep black body under a dense yet quick fading tight foamy mocha head. Aroma of dark chocolate, soy sauce, booze, dark fruits, burnt vanilla extract. Flavor is similar with a lot of dark fruit and dark berries coming through before a big burnt malts roasty finish. Medium body with solid heat on the backend. Really nice.
