lukin (548) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2015
bottle. dark black pour, massive tan head. Sharp roasty smoke and coffee. Whisky and alcohol, very strong and boozy. Bit of a weird bitter aftertaste. Its a flavour bomb, there is just too much going on here to be a truly enjoyable beer.

Bottle pour motor oil black and thick with huge tan head with good retention. Nose dark fruit, light roast, boozy. Taste sweet dark fruit, light bitter, roasted malt, chocolate. All the while some underlying heat from alcohol. Almost light smoke on the finish.

Terminus (3447) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 16, 2015
Tap pours motor oil black with a nice dark brown head and amazing lacing. Nose of burnt char dark chocolate green apples huge alcohol. Being brave on this one. Huge flavors mostly char and green apples this beer is very young and needs lots of age. Long char finish. Its pretty simple huge brutal brew.

Bawelt (273) - Lyon, FRANCE - OCT 15, 2015
Juste impressionnant. Pour le coup, l’alcool est très présent, il faut laisser un minimum reposer. Le nez est très fraise, la torréfaction se sent peu. En bouche, l’attaque amère est agressive. On est sur un café surtorréfié très présent mais loin d’être raté, les fruits noirs supportent le tout. Longueur amère vraiment impressionnante.

1/16/2011 2:30:16 AM On tap at Beer Temple. Darkest brown, tall mocha head. Bourbon nose. Taste is quite sweet, creme brullee like. Espresso. But way too strong to be enjoyable. Too much for me.

AleRider78 (365) - - OCT 10, 2015
Pours a huge frothy brownish head and has a dark black appearance. Pretty thick sticky lacing. Pours out fairly thick as well, almost like motor oil. Aromas of raisins, dark roasted malts, chocolate and molasses.. High abv is actually fairly noticeable. Flavours are a mixture of sweet and roasted malts, notes of dries fruits (raisins, plums). Once again, alcohol is quite noticeable, warming up your throat every sip. Not offensive at all, just definitely a strong mouthfeel and tingly sensation on the palate. Much more of a sipping beer.

jawlo (302) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 9, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2015 Aromat: potężna kawa, potem paloność, wanilia, czekolada i sos sojowy. Wygląd: barwa czarna, piana obfita, ładnie zdobi szkło Smak: na początku spora, aczkolwiek pozorna, czekoladowo-waniliowa słodycz, następnie ekstremalne uderzenie gorzkiej kawy i paloności, lekko kwaskowate, goryczka potężna. Tekstura: gęste i likierowe, niskie nasycenie. Ogólne wrażnie: wybitne piwo, bardzo złożony aromat, w smaku niesamowita kawowo-palona goryczka drażniąca przełyk oraz delikatna czekolada i wanilia dla balansu. Piwo jest wybitnie degustacyjne, jednak każdy łyk sprawia, że chce się wziść następny, mimo 17% alkohol jest świetnie ukryty.

heman (407) - Tychy, POLAND - OCT 6, 2015
Intensywny słodki aromat: suszone, czerwone owoce, porto, czekolada gorzka i nuta alkoholowa. Piwo jest niezwykle gęste i oleiste. Masa słodkiej czekolady, kawy z wyraźnie goryczkowym finiszem. Alkohol dość ordynarny, wprost przypominający likier, mocno rozgrzewający i gryzący gardło. Z kazdym łykiem coraz bardziej dominujący. Wybitnie degustacyjne piwo.

JBPortland (1374) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 5, 2015
375ml bottle, probably a year old now, pours sludge black with a finger of dark brown head. Right away the nose is big alcohol burn, after a short time it opens up some and has some ashy roast chocolate and nuttiness, with a hint of boozy mint spice. Taste is thick bodied, surprisingly smooth for the ABV, some char chocolate, ash, big nutty roast, booze. Finishes hot with a touch of alchohol burn, there is some lingering roasty chocolate and coffee that is enjoyable. Was expecting a train wreck, but not bad.
