Yikes. Poured on tap at midway pub ATL. The malt is overwhelming on this one and the palate is very heavy. First sip was ok but this beer quickly started to taste like soy sauce. Not recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wilderthanyou (752) - Guelph, CANADA - MAR 25, 2014
Pours a dark murky motor oil colour with a short lived beige head. The aroma is sweet, dark fruits, chocolate, toffee, anise, cherries. The flavour is sweet, toffee, caramel, chocolate, dark fruits, roasted malts, alcohol, cherries. Syrupy mouth feel. A ridiculous beer, every tasting note seems cranked to 11.

BeerandBlues2 (9094) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours opaque black with a medium, bubbly tan head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is toast, caramel, nutty, and cookie malt, light spicy and peppery alcohol, earthy, citrus, and herbal hops with dates, figs, prunes, and raisins. Flavor is sweet malt, candied dark fruits, light hops and medium-light bitterness, peppers, spicy alcohol, and a sweet, lingering finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

From bottle during the Oscars. Pitch black with creamy deep tan head. Aroma is booze, molasses, dark chocolate, and roasting. Taste is black strap molasses, cocoa, caramel, and dark roasted malt. Very boozy and sweet dark finish.

Large format bottle, split with friends. Very good sipping beer, and surprisingly drinkable given the high ABV.

luttonm (2069) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JAN 25, 2014
Draft in Seattle. Dark sitting lack, long head. Huce alc and treacle, dark soy, brown sugar. Quite smooth and sweet for what it is. Glad it has settled some. Really not bad, nice even.

Sledutah (4115) - Utah, USA - JAN 25, 2014
22oz bottle ("California Edition") picked up at Bevmo
Pours black with a small dark tan head and some lacing. Aroma of dark malts, caramel, piney and hot alcohols. The taste is sweet caramel, roasted malts, roast coffee, milk chocolate and hot alcohols, bitter finish
This is decent. I’ve had it for about a year and it is still pretty hot and bitter.

jazz88 (2528) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Bottle. A dark brown with a rich brown head. A powerful alcohol, dates, cherry, and spiced aroma. Obviously sweet in flavor but it maintains a good deal of spiced flavor to keep it interesting. It warms the night but seems to almost be too powerful.
