JLAudio (282) - Crestwood, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2009 Wow. This is like drinking bourbon. Pours a phenomenal black opaque with no head to speak of. There is no lacing either. The aroma can be smelled from 5 ft away...straight oak and bourbon. This beer is a powerhouse! Slams the palate of bourbon, oak, rum, raisins, charcoal, dark chocolate, vanilla, cherry, leather, and cocoa dusting. The flavors are NOT by any means balanced, but they are complex as hell. The alcohol is detected with ease, and burns the throat. The mouthfeel is off a bit, but for nearly 18% ABV, it is very acceptable. DFH World wide has nothing on this beer. Whatever this beer lacks in complexity, it makes up for in pure power! This is top notch.

On tap at BD57, june 17th 2017. Black body with a beigehead. Aroma is roasty, quite alcoholic, with a strong dry licorice and coffee note. Taste is sweet and boozy with a strong roast note, quite bitter, with cherries and nuts. Dark choco finish, with a lasting leather and roast aftertaste. Quite good.

explosivedog (290) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 22, 2016
Taster at Mikkeller Seoul. Aroma is pure espresso and it is as dark as beers come. Flavour is strong tart plum with a very alcoholic finish. This is big flavour, but oh so complex too. Utterly sublime.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2016 Bottle shared with JD. 15,7% vol. Thick brown and creamy head. Aroma of sweet berries, toffee, coffee but also complex. Taste is amazing. Bitter sweet complexity. Extremely long lasting taste with no alchohol domination. The kind of beer you just go "wow" and then speechless.

drjoeng (857) - SINGAPORE - JUN 21, 2016
16.8%ABV. Imperial Stout. Tapped out black. 40şSRM. Nose has sweet dark fruit, liniment, lo han go (fruit of seraitia grosvenorii), maraschino cherries, Turkish coffees, alcohol with a hint of fermented funk. Nose from a distance has some very attractive honey char siew or honeyed Cantonese roast pork aromas, I say distance because even after its done you still get a lot f astringents in the nose suggesting rubbing alcohol. Mouthfeel is alcoholic. Palate has charcoal, burnt toast, honeyed dates, charred driftwood. Overall, an assault on the senses with an almost abusive belligerence. I am soooo happy right now! Goes on Favorites List !

jakubwloszcz (183) - Piastów, POLAND - JUN 21, 2016
Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana obfita, beżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, zostawia świetny lacing. Prezentuje się naprawdę perfekcyjnie. Aromat bardzo złożony: czuć czekoladę, kawę, sos sojowy, paloność, ciemne owoce. W smaku jest bardzo intensywne, pełne, gęste, dominuje gorzka czekolada, jest też lekka kawowa kwaskowość. W odbiorze przeszkadza zdecydowanie palący alkohol, piwo staje się dość szybko męczące.
