On tap at Jackie O’s. Pours a deep brown with a nose of chocolate, dark fruit, and a hint of coffee grounds/peat. Flavor is has a lot of that with a hint of banana and cherry thrown in. Warmth from the ABV is lovely and goes nicely with the thick mouthfeel. Yum!

Bottle, pours dark black with a small reddish dark brown head. Aroma is molasses, brown sugar, raisin, chocolate, a bit sweet and boozy. Taste is bitter dark chocolate, kahlua, raisins, lots of roast, burnt sugar, some ash, overall a pretty impressive brew.

En fût au Parker Pie, des restants du takeover. Superbe mousse due à une effervescence trop vigoureuse qui rend le corps volatile. Les saveurs partent de la cassonade, mélasse et chocolat au lait pour aller vers le charbon, malts fûmés et torréfaction aiguë.

Bomber at Armin's. this bottle is infected for sure. Aroma is tart garbage with some chocolate toasty malt. Taste is sour tart and chocolate malt background. Might have been a pretty nice beer if not infected.12

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the pub. Dark beer with a rich, creamy head and a smooth oily mouth feel. Nose of rich, expensive chocolate and something like ice cream. There is a lot going on in this beer, with flavors of coffee with caramel syrup in it, raisin bread, chocolate covered cherries and a nice alcohol bloom. This is a great beer.
