4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from big bottle. Aroma of toasted malt, dry cocoa, licorice, honey. Stout black with ridiculously dark tan head. Cocoa and oat flavor with licorice, honey, raisin and just a wee bit of alcohol. Creamy, smooth feel - they must have used tons of oatmeal for this to be so drinkable. Well done.

Guest tap at The Local Pub, Athens Greece. Darkness black color with a wonderful brown head!! Aromas were subtle at first, but when the beer got warmer.. BOOM!!! In your face!! chocolate, coffee, lots of malts, maybe some liqourice. The taste was excellent, especially at warmer temperatures! Tones of malts and chocolate, coffee, liqourice, oat, some alcohol notes just biting the tongue, maybe some dark fruits! Really complex beer with an extremely pleasant and long aftertaste, somewhat bitter from the coffe and chocolate!!! Body was full, mouthfeel was great and the carbonation was low, just enough to complement the body and the aromas!!! Excellent beer!!!!!!!

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Schouskjelleren. Pitch black colour with a medium big thick brown creamy head. Aroma is complex. Roasty notes with malts, coffee, dark chocolate and liqorice. Flavour is lightly bitter. Lots of coffee and liqorice at first but the grainy oatmeal and syrup evolves. Lingering aftertaste. A very nice imperial stout.

Unk bottle date
Pours black with a finger of mocha head. Nice run of foam over the rim. Smells of vanilla. So nice. Really lengths above the regular version. Taste follows with nice notes. Awesome.
Wish I had more. Dry velvet and creme flavors. Man. I have a hard time not drinking more. Further, also want to take it back from my friends.

Strong, malty aroma, with molasses, pipe tobacco, raisins, and some alcohol. Bittersweet flavor with coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and raisins. Roast coffee bitterness and a fair amount of alcohol in the finish. Not for everyone--it’s named "The Crusher" for a reason--but a fine choice for a cold night.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very dark and thick pour. Thin brown head is gone pretty quickly leaving the slightest tan film on the top of the beer. Smells like bitter chocolate, dark fruits, and a little booze. This beer is packed with flavor. Dark coffee, bitter chocolate, roasted malts, and booze all flood the palate. There is a bit of a smokey characteristic to it that lingers on well after the sip. Feels thick and smooth in the mouth, balanced with a bit of a kick from the alcohol. I love to try this one aged for a couple years to see how it mellows out.
