3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark brown-black with thick moka head. Aroma is gourmet coffee and decadent chocolate cake. Taste is very rich, lots of chocolate and roasted malts along with a hoppy backbone which fell a little short to cover the huge amount of sweetness and alcohol. Rich and creamy palate. A good over-the-top imperial stout

Solid, complex aroma, roasted malt, velvety chocolate notes, coffee, licorice, vanilla.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Canada, merci Mathieuc! Pours a chalky dark black, thick as oil with a meanness to it. To borrow a line from Todd, I would cross the street if I saw this beer walking towards me. Strong aromas of coal, smoke, roast and some black unknown component that makes its presence felt through its sheer will. This beer will dominate you if you let it. This beer would make a cigar city stout cry for its mommy, cradled in the fetal position waiting for Florida homers to rescue it with their overinflated ratings. In short, this beer pulls no punches. There is so much smokey roast in here it’s almost hard to believe. Where the hell are the high ratings for this beer? This beer makes baller stout look like a $1 bill. Jesus. If you don’t like this beer, then you don’t like beer. thick, black, dark, smoke, roast, hops, coffee, chocolate, cigarette butts. This is world class.
