22oz bottle in a snifter. Pours almost black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of roasted and chocolate malts plus a lot of citrusy and floral hops and alcohol. Flavor the same, with a lot of everything but a little too much alcohol. Thicker texture. An interesting beer but they could have toned aspects of it down.

Tap - pours dark caramel brown with small tam head, fully diminishing. Loaded with dark malty flavors. Roast nuts, dried fruit, dates and with slight evergreen hoppy finish. Burn burn burn. Let this one age for 16 years or so. It might calm down.

ellolovey (483) - Georgia, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Bomber. 11.8% abv. Pours a thick, rich dark brown with a nice foamy mocha colored head. Aroma of caramel, molasses, roasted malts, dark cocoa, burnt sugars, dark fruits, and dough. So much going on it’s insane. Taste is sickly sweet and sour at the same time. Loads of sugars, roasted malts, molasses, and so many other flavors. Too much going on to handle. Very boozy. Rich and thick. Coats the throat.

On tap at Hops and Pie poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lingering brown head. Aromas of toffee, plum, raisin, dark chocolate and light carmel. Palate was medium to full bodied and smooth. Flavors of toffee, carmel, plum, raisin and molasses with a smooth lingering molasses finish.

A - Pours a dark brown-black with a finger of frothy chocolate head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of sweet caramel, dark caramel, and chocolate malts with dark fruits, citrus, pine, and grassy hops, with some darker chocolate, coffee, and richer toffee notes and some booze. T - Starts off with a mix of caramel, dark caramel, and chocolate malts with some darker chocolate, dark fruits, citrus hops, some bitterness, and brown sugar. Through the middle, some coffee comes through with some molasses, residual sugars, vanilla, sweet toffee, pine and grassy hops, and some more fruity flavors. The finish is a mix of dark caramel malts with dark fruits, milk chocolate, some darker cocoa, coffee, brown sugar, citrus and pine hops, molasses, and some booze. M - Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a warming and sweet finish. D - Very drinkable. Incredibly complex, but at the same time refined and balanced.

Hatzilla (14) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma is malts, coffee, cotton candy and licorice. Tastes of rich malt; also notes of plum, coffee and cocoa powder. Palate is very oily and slick. A nice strong beverage. Great for sipping and sharing. I thought this tasted and looked like an imperial stout but a great beer either way. Mazeltov!

Cybercat (4433) - Georgia, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Strong aroma is malty, woody, a little syrupy. Pours a deep coffee brown with a fairly thick, if not too persistent tan head. Flavor has molasses, roast malt and woody hops notes with more than a hint of miso - and an alcohol bite like an angry pit bull. It is on the sweet side, but not grossly sweet. Texture has very firm, oily, syrupy body, though fizz level leaves a bit to be desired. Whoa, it’s already hit me like a speeding MARTA bus! Finish is lip-smacking, woody, malty, syrupy. A perfect beer to drink on the first day of Hanukkah, even if you’re not Jewish. Well, I have some good friends who are Jewish, and that’s no lie.
