In short: A thick viscous big black beer with decent complexity. Good sipper.
How: Tap at Three Penny Taproom, Montpelier VT.
The look: Black body topped by a tiny tan ring of foam.
In long: Nose is rich blackened malts, ground coffee, dark fruits, chocolate. Taste has pretty much everything that you can expect to find in bit sticky stout/porter, it is chocolaty, it is fruity (prunes, figs), there is molasses, the is sweet black liquorice, pleasant notes of vanilla and also a cloves-like spiciness. Carbonation is rather soft creating a thick viscous mouthfeel. This is obviously a very sweet beer but not to the point of being cloying. The beer is a bit warm but overall I found the alcohol very well hidden considering it is over 11%. There’s a bit of everything in this beer, it is on the heavy side of course, it is a sipper after all, but drinking a full glass was a pleasure. A very strong beer indeed, and when I ordered it I asked the barman for its STRONGEST BEER very loudly to make sure everybody heard me, and then I wrestled the glass to the ground, and judging by the stunned look on everybody’s face, they were impressed.

On draught at the Beer Hall in Waterloo

The beer pours black with a very small head and good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is a lot of soy and tobacco up front but after it warms most of the soy goes away and is given way to more pleasant dark fruit, molasses, and dark chocolate.

The flavor is sweet and fairly dark fruit forward. The beer has a nice subtle smokiness and is lightly bitter but plenty roasty. The beer is a big one with plenty of warming booze... let it warm up before you drink it all up...duh.

The beer is big and viscous on the tongue, the way a beer like this should be. G.

Seems like the bottled sample I had was more superfantasitc, but this is still pretty excellent.
