Aged this one about a year and thought it was DAMN GOOD. Pours black with tan head and nearly no carbonation or lacing. It’s thick without being too sweet or syrupy, lots of chocolate cocoa, roasty, hazlenut, and maybe a little anise. Coffee is present throughout, especially in the finish. Very good.

Bottle a Chriso’s tasting 20/01/2013. Black with a big olde tan head. Treacle sweet caramel aroma. A bit boozy. Big bold roast toasty flavour, lingering bitter finish . A little salty soy sauce in there as well. Medium sweet,

Nose carries dark roast malts, chocolate, sweet sugars, wood tones. Taste comprises dark roast malts, light honey, chocoalte, soy sauce, aniseed. Full bodied with moderate carbonation leading to a dry finish. Ok but no world beater!

Bottle from Sam - thanks! Black pour with a quickly fading tan head. Aroma is thin cocoa, light char, smoke, chocolate, and minimal malt sweetness. Taste is thin cocoa, light hop bitterness, ash, bitter chocolate, and some roast. Thin mouthfeel. Slightly different take on the style. Okay.

2011. Ashy, smokey. Roasted malt blend is good but not great. Nothing to write home about.

SHIG (3635) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Bottle thanks to TURDFERGUSON: Poured a thick oil black with a finger light brown head. Huge robust coffee and dark chocolate aroma. Thick creamy dark chocolate blast with hints of coffee bean and loads of malts. I did not get the honey in this, but its definitely a big beer.

Draft. The sweetness of the honey comes through. Black with nice lacing. Rich coffee. Some bitterness but not overwhelming. Nice but not my taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

odd label, will bruin style if you will .. . pours a deep black brown .. . medium foam, lacing is light .. . burnt caramel, tar, and sweet tar .. . pretty enjoyable, but would have liked this years and not last’s .. . . I think I’ve seen a tube of that in my grandmother’s medicine cabinet.
