Impressive brew: as advertised, strong aromas of malted milk chocolate shake with some dark fruits like raisin and prunes, some roasted coffee also, appearance is black in the middle with some browning on the edges, good solid body, flavor is outstanding and in balance, not too sweet and not too roasted, very wine like notes to the senses, creamy body and slight bittering finish, will definately add to my list of drink again beers.

I really didn’t do this beer justice. I didn’t have a glass and had to drink it from the bottle. But overall was it good, had a nice malt finish and nice thick body.

Pours a jet black with a quickly disappearing tan head. Weak grape aroma. Flavour is sweet and the high alcohol content gives a very warm, but not overpowering feeling. Aftertaste is a gentle sweetness that makes your mouth water. Overall a nice, warming, sweet beer, perfect for the winter.

Black with creamy tan head. Big toasted malt nose, coffee, dark chocolate, amazing. Very smooth on the palate (surprisingly after that gorgeous nose), coffee, creamy milk chocolate, medium burnt toast, a squeeze of lemon, champagne carbonation that fits in well. Finish towards a nice hop kick and mellows out again. Nice and dry, not too sweet, complex.

Has an interesting roasted plum aroma that is fairly unusual. The sweetness and alcohol are pretty apparent.

Excellent. Sweet yet strong aroma. Rich chocolate, caramel, coffee, and a bit of malt taste... absolutely one of the best stouts I’ve ever had. Second only to Guinness

Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma is a sweet malt, grape, and coffee. The chocolate comes up front in the flavor also traces of malts, mocha, coffee, and raisen. Great beer, with a creamy palate.

Bottle. Dark pour with nice creamy head. Blackberries and molasses on the nose. Robust flavor with lots of molasses and mocha and a dark fruit finish. Very intense flavor.

Black with a thick brown head, but eventually becomes just a lace. The high alcohol is very present in the aroma with some roasted malt too. Taste is very pronounced with bitter roasted malts flavor. I sense a little coffee malt also. The high alcohol content is also very pronounced in the flavor.

Pours dark with a thick tan head that is pretty well formed. Aroma is earthy malts. It definitely has some chocolaty notes. Initial flavor is sweet with some light bitterness mixed in. The finish is a powdery chocolate..dry on the tongue with some bitterness like baking chocolate, but still primarily the earthy sweet flavor. There is some spice flavoring if you swish it around your mouth, but it is quickly overtaken by the muting dirt taste (not unpleasant). I would buy this beer any time.
