4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Been holding out on opening this for a while, so I decided to share it for Monday night’s #CraftBeerChat on Twitter. body is an opaque black, with a thick foamy/rocky tall burnt umber colored head. the aroma is nothing short of fantastic, mildly roasted coffee, dark chocolate bars, roasty malts, a little vanilla, mild licorice candy. Flavor is a wee salty, with nice bitter earthy roasted/burnt coffee malt, some anise/licorice liqueur flavor, and dry high cacao% chocolate. a little charred oak and blackstrap molasses in the finish, with some mild leafy bitter hop and coffee aftertatse. great brew, lives up to the hype. Special thanks to my twitter friends to share the review in real-time! @jimbinder @ChicagoDiane @arikhanson @steveschoon @jeffmello #CraftBeerChat

Un 10 de cerveza. Tiene un ahora dificil de olvidar pero lo más impresionante es su entrada en boca, una cerveza suave por la cantidad de avena que lleva y un sabor impresionante a vainilla, chocolate, cafe... es inmejorable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass ; room temperature.
Very strong beer, in all means. I didn’t like it. The taste is really well balanced between porter and wisky. Great colour, and a overhelming palate.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Gray wax sealed bottle. Bubbily dark black with a little bit of foamy tan head. Aroma is mild but sweet milky stout comes through. Really smooth roasted bitter coffee beans, dark chocolate, mild hop bitterness at the end. Thick body and dry. Some lacto notes in the finish linger with the coffee, like drinking milk n coffee. Some booze in the final sips, pleasant though. Preferred the Slyrs whisky barrel version, but this one is really awesome too. I still can’t believe I’m drinking catshit.

Poured from a bottle. Really great imperial stout. Black with mocha head. Nose is coffee, chocolate and roast along with vanilla, and hints of fruit and spice. Dark ripe fruit on the tongue, not too sweet, finishes slightly bitter. Slick, oily mouthfeel. Drinkable, alchohol well hidden. Plenty of complexity to enjoy with this beer.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2016 Thick black body, medium brownish head. Aroma of toasted malt, surprisingly floral, i had notes of lavender at first... Some fruits too like plum, blueberries and black current. Coffee is coming afterward and as the beer breath it takes a more prominent place. Flavours of toasted barley, coffee, lots of malt complexity, caramel, licorice, alcohol fusel, cocoa. The floral hops arrives at the end bringing the bitterness with them. Long finish, toasted malt, coffee, alcohol, strong bitterness. Oily body, low carbo. What an outstanding beer, complexe, savory, balanced, elegant.
