Pours thick and black with a large brown head. The nose is smoke, dark fruit, anisette, oak and booze! The taste is very sweet an medium bitter until the finish where the bitter takes over. The mouthfeel is sticky and the body is heavy heavy heavy. The finish is super long. Buona! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (11614) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Sample at the Blarney Wine tasting on 03/16/2013: Brownish-black pour with a medium khaki head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of smoked malt, pine and citrus. Full-bodied with a boozy character and flavors of burnt malt and resiny hops. The finish is sticky with a boozy and piney aftertaste. Above average overall.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAR 21, 2013
22oz bottle. Dark brown with a foamy tan head. Big aroma of bitter sweet chocolate, vanilla, caramel, marshmallow, coffee and dark fruit. Flavor is dark chocolate, liquorice, acidic coffee, sweet milk caramels and some hop bitterness in there too. Full body with a thick creamy mouth feel. This is a big, strong, sweet, bitter, over the top beer... I like it. Not one I’d drink a lot of or often but really nice.

Strong aroma of caramel and toasted malt. Opaque black colour. Very thick on the palate. Oppressively sweet, with some notes of chocolate, caramel, and the joy of finishing my Torah potion at my Barmitzvah

A beast of a beer. Thick bodied and dark. It needs at least another year to mellow out. Alcohol is very present and its not yet balanced. It's good now. It will be great with time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Pours thick and black with a 1 finger, creamy brown head. Aroma has lots of spice, dark fruit, molasses, some roast, chocolate, anise, earthy notes and tons booze. Flavor starts off surprisingly smooth, lots of mild, black licorice, roast, a little chocolate, rye-like earthiness and spice (I would be surprised if this didn’t have tones of rye in it), dark roasted nuts, wet leather, sticky, harsh pipe tobacco and a pretty decent amount of spicy grassy and pine. There is a bit of alcohol presence in the flavor, but not what I expected from the 16%ABV, or the super boozy aroma. Palate has a very heavy, oily and chewy body, light, but sharp carbonation and a thinning, dry finish with a little boozy astringency. Not bad overall, might get another bottle just to see if it calms down after a year or two.

GuillaumeCL (344) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2013
Pours an opaque black with little to no tan head. Smell is burnt sugar, some vanilla, and a hint of grass. Palate is thick bodied with good carbonation. Taste is... something. Starts out a bit bitter but then gets super sweet, so sweet that it’s almost bitter again. Strong alcohol in the aftertaste along with some burning the the throat. Not exactly the smoothest beer but interesting still.

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2013
2013-02-17. Dark brown body, smallish head. Sweet boozy aroma, dark malt, rye, currants and dark fruit. 7+ Flavour is similar, dry alcohol, quite bitter, especially in the finish. Dryish rye like grainy character. 7+ Smooth full bodied palate. Nice, rich, complex, just big. Enjoyed a small sample, but a whole bottle of this scares me a little. Bottle shared by Tuqueboy.

robinvboyer (4178) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2013
Looks like an impy stout, with a huge, brown, thick head. Unbelievable amount of charr and roast in the aroma. Some soy, dark fruit, slight pine, and molasses. Medium mouth feel, not as thick as i expected. Low carb, and a heavy, bitter finish. This is a big robust beer, but i feel the intense roast and char really make thisone dimensional.

solidfunk (7701) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Had heard this was a bit of a mess but I actually enjoyed it. Pours syrupy black with good mocha head in the beginning. Very thick consistency. Aroma has roast malt, hops, black licorice and caramel. Booze aroma surprisingly light for style. Taste is bitter and a little sweet. Nice.
