Black. Thin dark brown head. Aromas are rich sweet dried prunes, coffee, leather, chocolate, raisins... WOW! Alcohol is there, but not aparent. Flavor is initially big black licorice, sweet dark chocolate, figs - no, scratch that - black strap molasses with raisin tar. Then finishing back into black licorice with a touch of astringency. This beer just doesn’t finish! Roasted nuts, tobacco, leather, dark rum... should age well for 20+ years if anyone has the patience... Tasted May 21, 2008 - Bottle from John’s Market Place in Portland.

Bottle to glass. Pours black with a ran head. Aroma is burnt coffee. Taste is kick you in the mouth bitter coffee. Like your chewing on coffee grounds, the bitterness is overwhelming. After three sips I feel like I need to brush my teeth, this one needs help.

Purchased in July 2015 enjoyed November 13, 2015 in a MadTree tulip/snifter. Look - Pours brown, not black. Finger of frothy tan head (fine to large bubbled). Little lacing. Settles to a ring. Smell - Chocolate. Coffee. Char. Toffee. Alcohol. Taste - Chocolate masks booze well. First sip was spicy. Warmth improves it. Bubblegum on end. Feel - Chewy. Thick. Stings tongue. Burns. Overall - Finishing this by yourself is a task. Time to go to bed.

lukin (540) - 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.

Terminus (3407) - 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 (187) - 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.
