COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Shall one compare thee to a fair beer, Not even this perfect porter before thou will do thee justice. Thou art more complex, brave and cunning. Thou have changed more than a brew will ever. Thou may be lilí, but thy mind is greater than words can speak and beer will ever taste.

Benzai (13678) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle shared with MrHangover. Opaque pitch black color, average sized brown head. Aroma and taste are malts, roasty, slightly alcohol and a hint of liquor, nicely bitter especially in the finish. Oily texture, medium to full body and carbonation. Nice!

WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - APR 29, 2014
Small bottle. Pours very dark brown, big beige head. Nose is fudge, anise, dark fruit. Flavour has some roast in the background, lots of choc and anise, very silken, smack-you-in-the-face type beer, and really well done.

AWISLguy (2487) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 28, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine in Jensen Beach with a 3/17/13 bottle date. Pours blacker-than-cola colored with a brown head. No real lacing. Aroma has heavy roast, bitter chocolate, cocoa nibs and some molasses. Taste is of bakers chocolate, sweet caramel, heavy roast, espresso and some lactose. Somewhat mochaccino and cookies. Medium to full bodied. Very little alcohol presence. Finishes somewhat long and bittersweet, and a bit rough. Lot of good/interesting parts - the total does not quite equal the pieces or it would be world class.

rudolf (2353) - 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.

italarican (1543) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2014
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 itís damn good.

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 (2991) - Gray, 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 !
