4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ CBC2013. Pours a pitch black colour with a beige head. Aroma is very rich with mudcake, roasted malts and bread. Flavour is very rich as well with mudcake, raisins, roasted malts, wood and some soy sauce. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and a warming, roasty, rich finish. Soy sauce notes ruin a bit, but otherwise a great rich beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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!!!
