Mindwarp (167) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Pours a typical stout "black" with a thick tannish head. Aroma of chocolate, smells really sweet. Taste of "burnt" chocolate (I’ve never tasted burnt chocolate) really sweet can’t taste the booze. Overall probably the sweetest stout I have ever had, not bad though.

Well balanced with the coffee and chocolate notes expected from the style. Warming and big and nearly black with a good backbone of bitterness to offset the malt. It is tough for me to find, so it was a nice treat on a cold afternoon.

Bottle. Pours nearly black with thick creamy head that lingers. Malt aroma with mild carbonation. Excellent balance of coffee and chocolate flavor. Substantial mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

slowrunner77 (9941) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2014
"Louis, I’m feeling ya on this one. Not sure if there are quality control issues or what but this was a 99th percentile beer before we had it? Way rough around the edges, all kinds of overdone flavor and aroma components and a good dose of unpleasantness. Didn’t finis the bomber..."

MadRobin (2797) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Poured from 22 oz. bottle. Opaque, brown-black with a brown head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, oak, bourbon and vanilla. Taste of rich dark chocolate, roasted malt, toffee, alcohol, bourbon, vanilla, oak and roasted coffee. Medium/full body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

radagast83 (7141) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2014
22 oz. Pours a pitch black color, medium-sized small tan head. Aroma was notes of roasted malts, dark chocolate, perhaps some bitter coffee notes. Flavor was smooth roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, some woody oak notes. A bit warm to be drinking this, I best it would be great in the wintertime.

dfinney23 (2658) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Stout-dark pour with a thick caramel-colored head. It has the usual coffee and chocolate notes with a nice bitter kick at the end that seems more chocolate than coffee or hops.

rodenbach99 (4164) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
Une bouteille partagée. Une robe brune avec une mousse aussi brun. Un nez de tire éponge (celle qui colle au dents). Une bouche puissante d’alcool. Simple et sans envergure. Elle manque de corps. La finale est astringente et n’invite aucunement à reprendre une autre gorgée.

SlovakSniper (4986) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2014
Merveilleuse mousse brune sur cette robe qui pourrait bien être noire. Je n’ai pas fait très attention à la dentelle. À ce stade-ci, je peux voir quelques traces éparpillées. D’entrée de jeu, les malts se cachent derrière un fût de bourbon bien boisé et des houblons qui me semblent perdre de longs parfums herbacés. La première gorgée n’impressionne pas mes papilles. La seconde et les suivantes placent des saveurs chocolatées et fruitées à la remorque d’un alcool malhabilement aromatisé aux herbes piquantes. En bouche, le liquide a un corps de moyenne densité avec un pétillement actif et une texture crémeuse. La finale chaude est chocolatée, amère, astringente, piquée et plus ou moins agréable. Vieille bouteille ou simplement pas fait pour moi?
