From notes. Finally found the long-lost notebook from the 4 Elf Party at Dark Horse on December 13! So, thats where this was found. Shared by a passer-by for a chance to hang around the campfire wed built. The pour on this is a viscous oily black with a thin dark brown ring of head and a spotty lace/ The aroma was lots of dark fruits up front, and a strong cocoa presence. The nuttiness definitely comes on strong on the back end. The flavor is very similar. There is a great cocoa throughout that I really like. The dark fruits are a nice touch as they blend incredibly well with the walnuts. There is a little vanilla and a slight graham cracker on the far back end. The mouth feel is a little light, but it is nicely carbonated, producing a nice velvety feel, but it falls off quickly. The aftertaste is lingeringly bitter from the cocoa, with a hint of nuttiness. Damn good

MacBoost (1452) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle from alexsdad. Thanks! Pours a deep black with almost no head. Aromas of nutty roast, deep malts, a touch of tobacco and maybe a pinch of dark fruit. Taste is semi sweet and lightly bitter. Heavy, thick oily mouthfeel. Flavors of dark fruit, some ash, round nuts. Black phallus. Big, bruising beer. A touch cloying, but not so much that I cant chug it. Decent, not a world beater.

Bottle from a recent trade. So happy I got to try this. Pours a thick back, oily tar in my snifter. Some mocha head. The aroma was black currants, raisins, dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, cocoa powder, anise, plums, and graham cracker. The taste was dark chocolate and cocoa nibs up front, transitioning to dark fruits like prunes and raisins, ending with caramel, vanilla, and graham cracker pie crust. Thick, full mouth and body. Chewy chocolaty finish. Very good!
