4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. A black one, topped by a small, tan head. The aroma has lots of coffee, a touch of licorice, some dark chocolate and cocoa, and quite a lot of roasted malts. It’s lightly warming on the palate, sort of boozy so I guess the barrel has some influence, full-bodied, dryish and still sweet. Loads of dark chocolate and cocoa in the flavor, with coffee blending in between. Lasting finish where the coffee are more pronounced than in the aroma and initial flavor, but with the same lovely dark chocolate and coffee. Wow, this is one hell of a beer.

Fast gone dark russet-brown head, over virtually black beer. Very roasted/burnt nose, but also aromas of cocoa, chocolate, coffee, including hints @sweetness. Vanilla, oak and copra. Roasted/burnt, burnt cocoabeans, wood, Bourbon, vanilline, fusels. Filthily rich, viscous, near syrupy, huge concentrated aromas, velvety feel, alcoholheat. Wow.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Memphis for the lost abbey event. Pours thick dark black midnight with a thicker but small burnt caramel colored head. Aroma brings amazing molten lava chocolate cake and fresh dough. Flavor brings sweet and thick chocolate liqueur and some brandy with the bourbon balancing well, a bit of spicy wood balancing out an awesome huge buddy.

Draft at brouwers. Thick viscous black with a mountain of mocha head (though that may have been because I blew the keg). Chocolate espresso silky vanilla you know the barrel aged imperial stout drill. Smooth, tasty, good.
