COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big, Bold, and Black. This unusual lager style has many similarities to Imperial Stouts. A lengthy conditioning period creates a silky smooth chocolatey mouth feel enhanced by the use of oats and brown sugar. Noticeable sweetness gets balanced by roasted malt and hop bitterness. At 10% alcohol by volume, this beer is sure to keep you warm on a cold winter night.

SlackerMads (2052) - DENMARK - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle. Black with a medium sized beige head. Treackle, dusty grain, dry plant material. Flavour offers the same, wooden, syrupy. I Think I see what it is aiming at, but it is too sweet and rough. I don’t like this much. Why the high alcohol? What’s going on here?

SlovakSniper (3826) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2015
Une petite bouteille trouvée dans un dépanneur de l’état de New-York. Une robe brune foncée. Le nez exhibe des parfums de pain noir, de terre, de malts rôtis, de cacao et, minimalement, de tabac. Le goût est bien agréable avec des saveurs de malts rôtis et grillés, de chocolat, de café et de mélasse. L’alcool est complètement invisible. En bouche, le corps crémeux est moyennement imposant. Le pétillement est doux. La finale se fait sur des notes rôties bien plaisantes. Agréable. Facile à boire. Dangereuse.

mcox90 (1671) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle from Mass Liquors, Worcester Ma. Pours black with a fingers worth of dense tan head and decent lace. Cocoa nose with secondary vanilla and caramel, backed by mild pine resin. Lightly sweet flavor with everything found in the aroma plus some coffee flavor. Alcohol is noticeable, but does not intrude. Smooth creamy texture in the mouth. Full bodied. Very good.
