4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
more complex than beer geek bruch both in its aroma and flavour. Pours jet black with minimal head. Aroma is more subtle than brunch 1for 1, includes mocha, chocolatey aroma and in the flavour. Flavour also contained slight sweetness. Same great mouthfeel Up there with expedition for my favourite imperial stout. Awesome job

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by Turd. Snap, this is good. Thin brown bubbly head on top of a black pour. Sweet chocolate nose. Think mocha syrup. Earthy as well, though, which really keeps it interesting. Tangy, too. Tasty. Really, really tasty.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pros: Excellent appearance, natural carbonation - long lasting foam, tremendous purity, full mouth feel. Not brash for being so young (unlike Black Hole.) Complex, concentrated. Will mature in the bottle.
Cons: While the aroma is pretty nice, it’s not as powerful as I’d like.
I plan on putting some away.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass could not look better. Deep, deep black, very brown head. Starts very intense and complex malty, notes of strong coffee, liquorice and some chocolate. Well balanced, warming finish, soft as silk. A bit sweet aftertase. An incredible good beer!
Thank you yespr for this bottle!

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Appearance is a definate 5. Dark dark brown with a huge froathing brown head. Delicate dark desert chocolate aroma with notes of coffee, vanilla and wood. Flavor is delicate aswell, not overwhelming, which is nice. Makes it extremly drinkable, especially for a 10+ abv. Soft oily palate and medium complex bitter notes, sleightly roasted but mainly its coffee/chocolate bitter. Awsome!
