Bottle. Thanks Theis. Pours opague black with a medium tan head. The aroma is loads of cocoa, sweet caramel, chocolate cookies. This heavy shit! Overly sweet flavour with notes of port, caramel, chocolate, light coffee and sweet over ripe fruit and sugar.

Alcohol roasted malts and dark fruits. Some licorice. Black, some brown edges. Surprisingly night tan head. Alcohol taste, faint chocolate and roasted notes. Not very dynamic. Carbonation is stingy. Too crisp.

9/24/11. Growler shared in line waiting to get into BA Hunahpuís. Rich black pour with brown edges and a small tan head that fades fast. Rich aroma of ash, molasses, alcohol, and fruity notes as well. Very rich flavor of ash, char, coffee, and rich fruitiness with a touch of alcohol. Nice!

emacgee (4025) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Pours dark black with some light and one finger of tan head. Intensely rich nose, lots of dark fruit and chocolate, very portish. Some alcohol comes through. Rich and fruity with lots of dextrin, chocolate, caramel, and alcohol. Full viscous palate and alcoholic warmth.

TURDFERGUSON (3954) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Bottle, shared by emacgee. Thanks dude. Huge, over the top richness. Booze is there and apparent for the full experience, but there are some well integrated chocolate, vanilla and roast components that hold their own. Good, for a novelty beer, but not something Iíd want to drink regularly.

yngwie (13572) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle, 12oz, 2010 edition and 2007 edition side by side. As expected the 2010 edition has more and longer lasting head, both heads beige in color. Dark brown to black body for both. The aromas are quite similar, seemingly the cellaring hasnít done much. Alcohol, soy, roasted malts and some coffee on the nose. Not much difference in flavor either, soy, licorice notes, roasted malts, dark sugars and alcohol. Very warming, full-bodied. An intense one, it wasnít until now I noticed itís supposed to be 18% ABV, displains the warmth, but if itís this strong the alcohol is well hidden. Interesting. 110820
