375ml bottle, thanks to Jason.

Pours black, tan head, thin ring with some wisps on top. Smell is sweet...very sweet, actually. Light booze, oak, bakers chocolate, burnt sugars. Flavor is ridiculously sweet, chocolate, a little more booze here, caramel. Very decedent. Full body, light carb, creamy rich finish.

Overall, a very sweet, rich, and decedent stout. Not quite as good as previous rates suggest, but still a nice monster to sip on.

---Rated via I’m awesome and you’re not.

sic1314 (3286) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2013
Poured deep, deep dark brown/black with no head, heavy oily pour. Aroma is a glorious mixture of roast malt, dry, alcohol soaked fruit, dark chcoolate, vanilla and dark roast coffee. Full body, vanilla smoothness leading to a flavour that is a more three dimensional version of the aroma. Utterly gorgeous.

Yorker (1190) - Herning, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2013
37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours pitch black with a small tan head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are chocolate, tobacco, dark fruits, vanilla, coffee, and roasted malt. ABV is pretty well hidden.

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle @ Deans Winter Shelter Tasting, courtesy of kermis, 2013 edition. Many thnx for sharing this beauty. Pours a midnight black beer with virtually no head whatsoever. Aroma is alcohol, bourbon, booze, coffee, vanilla and caramel, all blended together in one of the most awesome aroma’s I’ve ever tried. Flavor is very sweet, much vanilla and caramel going on, alongside big molasses, licorice and dry roasted malts. Awesome balance. Long, cloying sweet aftertaste. One word.. WOW.. this defintely lives up to it’s reputation.

Black as it can be with almost head. Smells of deep dark delicious, dark roast, a bit of bourbon barrel, chocolate, espresso and deep delicious malt. Full oily smooth body. Tastes of deep chocolate cake, vanilla, thick and delicious. It finishes with deep chocolate sweetness. Amazing, just amazing.

Benzai (8224) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2013
Sampled from bottle @ Deans Winter Shelter Tasting. Thanks kermis! Opaque pitch black color, virtually no head. Aroma has malts, some sweetness, lightly wood, loads off vanilla. Taste malts, chocolate, lightly sweetness, wood, lots of vanilla again, decently bitter. Lovely beer but for me too much vanilla.
