12 oz bottle. Tasted on 8/9/14. Beer from Moore Liquor. The beer pours to a deep black color with a rich brown head. The aroma is strong with notes of coco, dark chocolate & roasted malt. The taste is rich & very smooth with a similar flavor as the nose. The finish is dry & very smooth. A great stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours jet black with a nice creamy head. Mouthfeel has a great coffee taste and a thick creamy palate. Yet another fantastic Founders brew.

Smaken ska, enligt egen utsago, vara en kompott av tamarind, mörk choklad, espressokaffe, pumpernickel och lakrits. Det tänker jag inte bestrida, men den smak som tronar över alla andra, som är de andras husse, det är den lömska alkoholen. Ibland är sanningen inget bra säljargument och då går det så här. "Med smak av tamarind och bakfylla."

adamnase (132) - Kronoby, FINLAND - AUG 6, 2014
355ml bottle. Pours thick and black with a moderate head, lasting and lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee and nuts. Rich with herbs, hops, bittersweet dark chocolate, and coffe in taste. this was almost to much for me, but i guess a nice one for imperial stout-fans...

DocJitsu (1032) - Florida, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Clugs into the glass like used motor oil. A thin, orange-brown, caramelized head forms. Smoky, chocolatey aromas waft from the glass. Thick, chewy sticky texture. Smoky flavor overarches the chocolate sweetness and olive.

Sevenlee (1382) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2014
Pours totally black with a brown head. Aroma is malt, roastiness, coffee, chocolate and some caramel. Taste is high sweet leading to a roasty finish. Awesome!

Moolesen (213) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle 35,5cl. First of all I didn’t think it was beer pouring out of the bottle, but oil or something else. Deep black with a dark brown head. Aroma of chocolate, tar and coffee. Extreme intense flavour of concentrated coffee (espresso), dark chocolate and a very long finish with a perfect bitterness to round of a fantastic beer. Absolute recommendable. A truly fantastic beer.

CarlJonas (215) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2014
Black with a brown head that quickly dissipates. All the usual suspects are there on the nose, chocolate, coffee, dark molasses with hints of soy sauce, vanilla and liquorice. The taste is big and bitter-sweet throughout, but with bitterness winning on over time. Low carbonation but a body that just won’t quit. No surprises here (except perhaps for that tremendous body), but in this case that’s a good thing.
