Sampled at 4 Hands. Almost black with some red in the foam. Interesting aroma. Vinous almost but angry darkness, too. Big malty cocoa flavor. Nothing quite fits what I normally get in a big stout. Really good but my tasye buds are not sure how to describe it.

Bottle shared with Simonsen
A small gusher. Pours jet black with a massive brown head. Smell of smoke, roasted malts, some funk and dark chocolate. Heavy sweet, roasty malts, some smoke, hints of coffee, dark fruity malts. Medium bitter finish with some earth and soil. Oily texture, soft carbonation. Excellent imperial stout with a funky twist

Batch 1 bottle at Strangeways. Pours pitch black with a khaki head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is the same with a slight bitterness. Great carb on the mouthfeel without diluting the flavors. Delicious beer

Really cool bottle that raises expectations. I loved the aroma of figs and coffee. Unfortunately i didn’t find the taste quite as good. Got some espresso and spruce. Good taste but not fantastic. Good over all though.

Bottle with a friend at my small apartment. Pours black with cream grey head. Aroma is roasted toasted malt, smooth light thin notes with and edge of burnt. Taste is nice caramel roasted malt, soft, lacto, very smooth and drinkable in the mild direction of an irish dry stout. Shame they stopped making this.

Bottle from Piggly Wiggly Homewood. Pours black with a thick brown head. Doesn’t leave much lacing in the glass. Fairly big malty notes on the nose. Massive chocolate on the tongue. Smooth, rich mouthfeel. Hides its alcohol well and is a pretty clean finisher. Awesome stuff!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. The taste seems undeveloped wich leads to a perfumed feeling. Heavy roasted. Too carbonated.
