This is it folks! I never thought I'd rate a beer as perfect but I can't find a damned thing wrong with this one. The aroma has sweet and bitter coffee notes. It pours like tar out of the bottle. The taste is powerful. Has a nice alcoholic warmth with lovely coffee flavor along with the smooth thickness. Oh god! This is just perfect.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 2013 vintage, 01/08/2013. Pours dark black, sparse hazy tan head, slight lacing, fading to an almost still surface. Aroma is rich, fresh coffee grounds, nutty and bit oily, vanilla cream and cocoa, dark toffee, bourbon well integrated in the background. Taste is vanilla caramel cream mixed with chocolate, dark roast with delicious coffee finish, mild bourbon in the aftertaste. Creamy smooth body. Really delicious, does not disappoint at all.

Holy fucking hell. Bottle, pours motor oil black, no brown edges. A vigorous pour yields a dark mocha head that recedes to a ring of fizz. Massive, coating alcohol legs on the glass. A whallop of black coffee on the nose; digging deeper, some dark chocolate and bourbon-y vanilla help balance. Full and soft on the palate, a whipcrack of alcohol, though fleeting. Gorgeous.

Rich black color; Heavy creamy body; Aroma of smoky malt, oak, vanilla, coffee, bourbon, & licorice; Flavor of roasted sweet malt, caramel, molasses/syrup, rich coffee/espresso, chocolate, and dark fruit (notably plums); Warm finish; Nicely balanced & complex; Excellent stout - but I still prefer the standard BCS.

2013 Los Inmortales. Coffee, booze, toffee aroma. Pours black with almost no dark tan head that rapidly fizzles away. Candy toffee mocha sweetness balanced with a coffee/espresso bitterness and a nice boozy warm finish. So amazing.

Last minute substitution by max at clocking new year. Pours deep brown with thick pillowy head. Nose of deep coffee. Tastes of rich coffee, some chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, earth, some dark fruits, and light piney hops. Thick and full bodied but not cloying.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beer is pitch black with a small head but pours very thick. The nose has coffee up front with vanilla and oak. Taste is more coffee with an alcohol punch. The finish is long with some roasted fruit. Great beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. 2013 bottling. Pours very dark opaque brown/black. Little to no head. Lots of coffee in the nose, sweet nutty notes as well, very little Bourbon. Body thick, rich, full, finish complex with coffee bitterness and Bourbon bite. Nice but not the best ever.
