Pour is pitch black with a bubbly brown head. Lots of coffee and dark fruit on the nose, toasted malt, caramel and anise. The dark fruit (cherries, plums) dominate the taste, there’s a good bit of toasted malt, dark coffee and bitter chocolate and caramel. Full bodied, super viscous. Delicious.

Thick black pour from an Oakland Raiders-inspired can. Slight brown head. Chocolate roasted malty nose and taste on this one. Slightly sweet, lots of bitter chocolate and some heat in the finish.

En god følelse og herlig aroma. Dyp mørkt øl. God ettersittende smak. Tungt men godt.

From notes: Poured opaque black with a 2-finger tan head. Roasty coffee aroma with a note of dairy cream. Full body with a long roasty note to the finish. Flavor was mostly of coffee, but with a mild alcohol bite underneath.

From a can!!!
Subtle chocolate aroma which turns into a pleasingly noticeable chocolate flavor. I'm a big fan of chocolate stouts, and this one currently ranks #1 in my book.
Powerful flavors that work well together without going too far.

Wow. This is a great stout! Pours thick and dark oil-like. Nice half inch tan head that hangs around. Lots of malty, roasty, toasty, coffee like aromas. Taste is almost identical just adds a hint of alcohol with a nice warming effect.

Pouring from the can just didn’t seem right. It looked very similar to a can of molasses, and almost the same consistency. The smell gave away the strong aroma of malt. I was shocked to see the 98 IBU, and yet not smell any of the hops.
Beautiful appearance. So dark was the liquid that when held to a light bulb, I couldn’t see anything. A thin head appeared, but only after pouring the last part about a foot from the glass.
I was not overwhelmingly excited about the beer. It was good, but the sweetness was very strong. Maybe more hops at the beginning would par back the overpowering malt. Surprisingly, given the high alcohol content (10.5%), it was not at all apparent. It went down smooth, but left a thirst for a lager.
Overall, an interesting beer, but I will not rush out for another (and Imperial Stout is my favorite).

Ölen inleder med en angenäm arom med dova toner av torkad fruk och choklad. Smaken som följer är intensiv med toner av choklad, rostad malt och en svag ton av vanilj. Kroppen är stabil och balansen på ölen är fulländad.
