Left over growler acquired by Peter and shared by John for rating number 1000. I seriously thought about going with Lime-a-rita, but chose this instead. Pour is predicatably black with a thin rim of tan foam. Appears to still have some nice carbonation. Does not look all that viscous but does leave some nice long legs. Aroma is complex. Molasses, Soy sauce, roasted malt, dark fruity notes, hints of cocoa, and a touch of cobweb from the basement ceiling. Much more roasty notes as it warms. Deep dark and complex. Flavor is similar to nose with more roasted ashy notes than the aroma but also loads of sweet sugary notes, hints of coconut, and a touch of booze. Drinks very very well for "12%". right. Also has a long brown sugar and toffee finish that keeps you wnting more. Really nice stuff.

Dogbrick (11480) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2011
Sample at the Jackie Os Bottle Sale/ Stout and Big Beer Fest on 02/05/2011. Blackish-brown pour with a minimal light beige head that disappears quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark malt, chocolate, and hops. Rich and chewy body with flavors of black coffee, chocolate and malt, along with a slight alcohol burn. The finish is roasty with a rich coffee aftertaste. Good beer throughout.

This poured a very dark brown to black color with a tiny tiny daark tan head. Aroma was lots of dark fruits, molasses and some soy. Flavor was much the same, not very roasty, very sweet with light roast, very thick but hold back the booze very well. Good stuff.

Bottle shared by daknole @ Woodshed 1.0! Excited to try this one and it didnt disappoint! Deep dark mahogany crossing slowly into black with a razor thin cocoa powder head. Lots of vanilla, bakers chocolate, fudge, molasses, and roasted coffee bean. Sweet and concentrated but not cloying. Really good stuff.

Multiple samples from brewpub and at DLD 11. Pours dark brown to black in color with thin beige film. The aroma and flavor have dark roasted malts, dark fruit, black coffee, some anise, a touch of soy. The flavors were bigger than the nose. some alcohol showed, but this was to be expected.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 7, 2011
Dark pour with not much head to speak of, but far from still. Aroma is roast, alcohol, coffee, chocolate. Complex aroma and the flavor definitely follows suite. Finish is dry. Balance remained intact, which is a rarity with ice beers. Very nice

Draft at brewpub. Pours black. Nose and taste of roasted chocolate malts, roasted coffee, vanilla, barrel and bourbon. Lots of warming alcohol but holds its balance quite well for the high ABV.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2011
Had this on the day of the June 25th release. Recieved in a short Munich glass. 4.0 A: Black color. Came with a small, short lived beige head. 4.0 S: Moderately roasty with milk chocolate. Sweet dark caramel and molasses. Coffee is subtle, which is strange since it is rather aggressive in the regular version. Nearly NO BOOZE, merely hints of it. 4.0 T: Strong caramel, moderate roastiness, milk chocolate, and mild coffee. Blackstrap molasses underneath. Rich, but barely boozy with a subtle warming after the finish. 5.0 M: Heavy body. Good moderate carbonation. Great creaminess without too much booze burn. 4.5 D: Great beer and another excellent addition to the Dark App lineup. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 06-27-2011 00:26:08
