750 mL bottle shared by ebone1988. Apparently I did something awful in a past life if this shit is being "shared" with me. He claims its for the fucking book. The pour is decent. There is a nice darkness to it and a thinner light tan head that looks rather creamy. The aroma is horrific. There is infection radiating out of this that is detectable from 10 feet. It’s tart and sour cherry and apple skin. Nothing resembling chocolate or carob. Oh boy. Here we go. The flavor is bad. The cherry is there, the apple skins are prevalent. There is a heat to it. It’s hot and foul. It burns on the way down in a way that beer should not. The roasted malt tries to make an appearance and then just fades out. The mouth feel is thicker than I had anticipated. It bodied up against the infection. The carbonation is softer and the aftertaste is just bad. There is a lot of sour and dry heat from the spoil. Whoa baby. This one I’d be hard pressed to give another go. Fuckin a.

Oh good. Bottle shared with koleminer20, for the book. Aroma is infection. Green apple, skins, no hint of roasted malt. Appearance is dark dark brown, light brown head, poured thin. Taste is infected. Green apple, chocolate, carob, roasted malt, bad. Mouthfeel is medium body, light crisp carbonation, horrible burned green apple aftertaste. Overall, the book strikes again, although this had potential to be good.

Luvystypotables (1694) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUL 16, 2016
A chocolate aroma with lots of vanilla and caramel. Pours a black color with a thick tan well laced head. A taste of caramel, vanilla and chocolate. Slightly watery body, and a slight chocolate finish.

danielemolino (106) - torino, ITALY - MAR 12, 2016
Bevuta alla spina al birrificio gradoplato di Chieri. Nota positiva del birrificio. Imperial stout al cacao e carrube. Leggera rinfrescante per essere una stout. Finale balsamico.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Pours a dark chestnut brown color with a half finger beige head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Sporadic spotty lacing left behind. Slightly roasted, sweet chocolate malt aroma with hints of cocoa, oatmeal and a subtle lactose sugar presence. There’s also an odd slightly herbal character that I can’t really pin down but the nose smells a lot like tootsie rolls. Light bodied and slightly watered down with sweet cocoa and a faint lactose presence. Kind of bland with slight roast and grassy, herbal hops. Not very interesting with a really weird combination of flavors. Like an herbal, slightly hoppy chocolate beer. Really thin for the style without much oatmeal or stout character.

Absolutbeerginer (54) - Lausanne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 13, 2015
robe noire aux reflets bruns, mousse beige-moka qui retombe rapidement. nez intense de cacao, réglisse et alcool. En bouche, cette bière pétillante au corps imposant, présente un bel équillibre entre l’amertume intense, sèche du cacao et des notes douces amères de réglisse et de sucres de la caroube (sirupeux). Très longue finale, douce et crémeuse. Un verre suffit amplement en guise de dessert.

Sample at SBWF 2015. Smell of chocolate and oranges. Similar taste. Like drinking liquid "romerska bågar" or orange chocolate.
