Black, thick, no head. Smells like alcohol, chocolate, smokey, dark coffee, maybe in that order. Sweet, though not very bitter. Heavy bodied. Good, may may be better with a more toned down alcohol scent.

Big bottle in a teku. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, faint notes of coffee and dark fruits, some light sweetness, and light bitterness. Flavor the same with the roast and chocolate dominating. Smooth texture. A good imperial stout.

Not bad. Very bitter with a little lingering sweetness. Some medicinal qualities under the cocoa, black patent, hint of molasses. Little out of balance on the bitter side for me.

Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate roasted chocolate malt aroma. Medium to heavy dark malt flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a solid beer.

12 oz bottle shared by DrSilverworm via Paul and Jamie. Pours a dark cola brown color with a thin beige film. The aroma and flavor had dark roasted malts to the point where they were ashy and burnt, dark chocolate, earthy bitterness, a hint of smoke, some dark fruit character, big ashy component, dry, opened up more as it warmed but still very roasted malt forward.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, labeled 9.5%, 81 IBU. Bit of a low fill. Thanks to Paul & Jamie. Shared. Code on the bottle is too cryptic for me to bother recording it. Very dark brown color, with a minimal ring of bubbly head. Some mild roast in the nose. Little dark fruit in the flavor, some soy, hint of dark chocolate. Medium-plus body. Bit thin. Light, kind of crisp carbonation. Mild slick texture, leading to a light dry finish. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, moderate sweet, mildly sugary. Interesting, solid one.
