tiong (3724) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 4, 2013
Draught @ CBC 2013

Pours pitch black with a smooth head. Aroma of sweet syrupy notes, coffee, roasty malts, cocoa, vanilla and ash. Taste is sweet and sticky with loads of grainy roasty malts, cocoa, ash and vanilla. Finish is sweet and roasty with some syrupy notes and hints of cocoa, sugary vanilla and coffee. Quite massive and over the top IS. Too much of everything, not very balanced.

Tap. Pours jet black with a creamy dense brown head. The aroma is chocolate, oranges, hard roasted malt and sweet fruit. The flavor is sweet roasted, oranges, candy, sweet chocolate and dark berries. Loads of sweetness in this. Complex as hell.

Rich, rosted coffee and port. Heaven! Big drink, sip it slowly and enjoy all the flavour. Wish I could try this one again.

Bottle. Pours black. Yup. Nose is weird and cool I think, a little sour but lots of sweet malty stuff, too. Flavor is also weird but cool. Drinks easily enough despite the alcohol. Neat.

big huge thanks to greg for obtaining this bottle. big thanks to Dak for inviting me to this highly insane tasting. This is the most perfect beer that i have ever had to date. I would gladly fly to the end of the earth for this beer again. poured an amazingly beautiful black with a copper head. aroma was dark fruits, chocolate, fudge, earth, and cinnamon. flavor was equally as impressive with fudge, earth, dark roast, dark fruit, and a spicy quality that really stood out and wowed me. body was insanely rich and smooth. I am seriously humbled by this beer and the chance to drink it. those tampa guys rock and really know how to show an out-of-towner a great tasting. oh yeah and this is rating 2000 baby!!!

Glad to have come across this one even more glad that there was such a cool group of guys that helped me land it. A: Pours a nice rich deep dark black hue with a nice mocha colored head. Some retention and a bit of lace. S: Rich and sweet. Notes of chocolate and dark fruits. Hints of roast with rich candy like tones. T: Rich and earthy. Roast and deep dark fruits. A mild tone of sourness hides beneath chocolate. Hints of mild smoke and a touch of booze. M: Full bodied, rich and roasty.

NUMBER 400, WHAT?? Huge tip of the cap to Greg for landing this bottle!!! Joan Jett black pour with a tan head. The nose is crazy with dark fruit, chocolate, and funk aromas. The taste to me was more like a barley wine than an imperial stout. Dark fruit, lacto, cherry, green apple, cinnamon and other spices. What a mad blend. AWESOME...

Pours black with no head. Nose is strangely spicy, hints of mild sourness, toasted malt, earthy hops. Flavor is HUGE spices, almost hot, warming alcohol, hints of sour fruits and berries, slight brett funk, big sweet sugars. Fantastic beer.
