Bottle 33 cl, trade. Pours oily pitch black with a small brown head leaving just a rim of bubbles around the beer. Aroma is heavy of sweet molassis, roasted malts, dark fruits, soy, chocolate, coffee and alcohol. Flavor is fullbodied sweet, roasted, meaty, soy, fruity, dark fruits and bitter. Finishes bitte meaty roasted and bitter. Maybe a bit too boozy but I think the sweetness mates well with the heavy body and alcohol, very much in my taste,

Bottle pours purplish black with almost no head. Aroma dark fruits, roast, molasses, coffee. Flavor mainly just dark fruits and booze, a little soy. Finish a continuation of the flavor with alcohol burn. Palate full and thick, not sticky or syrupy. Alcohol very apparent.
Pretty good but definitely a sipper or one to share with friends.

Sample from 2010 bottle. Thanks verticalbaconstrips! Almost black appearance with minimal cap. Aroma of plum, raisin, molasses, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, spices, with a hint of paper. Taste is very sweet, tangy, and a sustaining bitterness. Sticky and dry finish.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Artusory. Super boozy aroma, totally ridiculous harsh. There is definitely some chocolate malt in there but its masked by pure vodka/rum. Theres a huge head on the pour but its quickly destroyed by the alcohol. Flavor is actually quite nice, behind the booziness there is a wonderful plummy sweetness are rich chocolately notes. Fruitier than a normal IS, the sweetness really does this well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Boom! Gunshot opening! Pours a black body with a foamy, extremely short-lived beige head.
Smell: Black malt aroma with notes of dark chocolate, charred fruits, nut ash, coffee.
Taste: Dark roasted grains with a snap of sugary sweetness. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, prunes, burnt nuts and creosote struggle to remain cohesive. Hot finish, baby! Hot finish comin’ thru!
Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Moderate carbonation. Very warming all the way down.
Drinkability: About as fine and drinkable as really any of these high octane stouts possibly can be.
