Lukaduke (2686) - Gray, Maine, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Pours a deep thick burnt umber color with a huge sticky four finger dark mocha foam. On the nose its rich boozy chocolate, roasted malt and lots of piney minty hop note and a touch of licorice as well. On the palate its a lot of the same with a thick viscous mouthfeel and a heap of smooth pleasant flavors. Nice rich chocolate notes create a solid foundation for the rich earthy pine sap hop notes... touches of citrus and a complex mixture of mint, licorice, nutty and just a touch of soy sauce. Definitely a bottle to share cause this mis big strong and chewy !

Klimaet (702) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle. Pours black with a medium light brown head. Aroma has lots of chocolate, coffee, lots of roasted notes, light burned wood, lots of hops, tobacco, licorice and some weird savory thing going on. Seriously reminded me of the way seaweed is salty. Taste is coffee forward, chocolate, roasted malts, licorice, bitter notes, tobacco, same weird savory thing going on. Good but pretty damn weird.

ctipping (216) - Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2015
22 oz. bottled poured into a snifter. Jet black. No light passes through. Nothing resembling a head except a slight coating of mocha bubbles that quickly fade into a ring around the edge of the glass. The smell is booze primarily. Chocolate comes a close second. Coffee and roasty flavors linger in the background. Chocolate dominates the flavor. Dark fruits in the middle flavor that quickly fade to coffee bitterness. Thick. Coats the mouth. Low carbonation. Delicious.

neepsntatties (1373) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle shared by Pavlov Badzewski. Colour...jet black with a thin tan head. Nose...boozy, with molasses, chocolate creme, notes of coffee and burnt marshmallow. Palate...quite viscous, chewy and coating, with massive dark chocolate, Tootsie rolls, unsulfured molasses, Devils food cake and Milky Way Midnight. The finish is long and quite cloying.

maneliquor (3469) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle split for Nudgerita from Elliot’s America trip. I can see why this is rated highly. Typical sweet american stout with that underlying, coating-like vanilla-esqu feel throughout. A nice viscous mouth feel and super dirty chocolate forward stuff. Works well on all levels. Great

madelfonatree (109) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 10, 2015
2011 Night Stalker on May 8, 2015 Look - Oily black. Thin tan head. No lacing. Fine bubbles. Smell - Whiskey. Vanilla. Chocolate. Taste - Whiskey. Vanilla and chocolate fade to a tootsie roll like taste. Alcohol is there. Tannin finish. Palate - Thick and creamy. Carbonation doesn’t explode. Overall - It is going to sound blasphemous but it isn’t much different than the barrel aged vanilla Dark Lord I had at DLD.

Hoprider (160) - DENMARK - APR 20, 2015
This rating goes back a while... Didn’t bother with appearance but noted that the nose had beautiful sweet licorice, brown sugar and mild coffee roast. Flavour has light dark chocolate and again licorice and hops playing in the background. The mouthfeel is rich and the aftertaste is long with hints of hazelnut, vanilla and some raisin and sweet oak. Loved it.

22 oz bomber shared at 1st Sunday. Reminiscent of BCS. Highly complex and very rich flavor. Lasting, malty-BBL aftertaste. Full . Deep dark red-brown body.
