Definitely not your Dadís Wimpy 30 weight. An enormous & luscious dark ale thatís as opaque and dark as the most well used motor oils.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2007 This is the second time I have blind tasted this brew. As written last time, I would have liked to re-rate this brew, and I guess Papsoe made that possible. Once again thanks Henrik.

#10 [Blind tasting @ Papsoe] Small creamy light brown head that mostly diminished. Fair display of lacework. Very dark mahogany coloured. Initial sniff gives the impression of vanilla, roasted malt, molasses, chocolate, rye bread. Very vinous with bourbon and oak feel. Also some underlying hoppy notes. Full bodied with an alcoholic texture and an average carbonation. Heavy sweet flavour with light bitter notes. Lingering bitter finish. Quit nice. 4 / 8 / 8 / 4 / 16 = 4.0

First rating 26-03-2007 3.5 Bottle. [Blind tasting session @ Sk8viking] #4 Small light brown head that mostly diminished. Colour was dark brown. Aroma was molasses, chocolate, roasted, plum, date, wood, smoke, brown sugar. Medium to full bodied with a flat carbonation. Flavor was moderated with light notes of bitterness. Like sunevdj said, a bit like a sweet stout. Think I need to re-rate this one if I get the chance.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2007 Good gravy, this is one oleaginous mother of a beer! The brewers might call this an American Strong - and itís got plenty of strength, no doubt - but itís more like a seriously smooth old ale, with occasionally roast-tastic overtones of imperial stout. Pours a deep dark brown with just a hint of lace, with a huge bourbon-y head. The alcohol is a bit too present at first (something that obviously may change with age) but the chocolate is booming, Jack. A smidgen of hops, but this is thick like molasses and a big jolt of flavor. Very nice, and will no doubt only improve with age.

sunevdj (3120) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2007
Blind rating at sk8vikingīs. Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Smells grainy with a hint of mint. Sweet with lots of toasted cereals and coffee. Mellow flavors of mint, alcohol and wood. Almost fulll bodied. Like a nice Sweet Stout.

Sammy (8348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2007
Thick dark XXX with coffee and chocolate aroma. Taste with my eyes closed is certainly imperial stout. Smooth and drinkable but I am getting stout first and foremost.

Ungstrup (29017) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2007 Bottled. A pitch black and somewhat murky beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is acidic with notes of vegetables combined with chocolate. The flavor is like slightly acidic chocolate sludge combined with notes of grapefruits, leading to an end with a slight alcohol burn. The body is thick.

Bottle a gift from my buddy Odeed!!! Nose of dark chocolate, caramel, vanilla, and a bit of floral hops (kind of stouty) opaque dark brown with a medium, hangs in there, glass lacing, tan head; flavor of bitter chocolate and hops, body is a thinner medium with the hop bitterness lasying to a smooth finish. I like this better than itís oak aged brother!

skoisirius (1561) - Earth, Washington, USA - MAR 23, 2007
Bottle sampled at the Hard Liver tasting, poured into a Snifter glass. Pours a thick murky black with no head. Raisins, chocolate, and licorice aroma. Flavor is HUGE in cocoa, bits of burnt dark fruit, notes of molasses, and hints at espresso. Big, big, lovely beer!!

Murky, fluid and inky mahogany black with not one bit of head. Luscious nose. Anise with bakers chocolate and milk chocolate morsels. Broiled prune juice makes an experimental lactic mocha cooler. Brown sugar caramelizes raisins and dates with a hint of portly nutella, and caramel ripples stirred with black licorice sticks. Big flavor surplus realizes blackened and burnt chocolate covered walnuts, dripping oily grease and pooling in the bottom of the mocha catch tin. Fudge gathers with burnt espresso grinds, and some singed cocoa marshmallows provide a greasy yet crisp bridge. Port sauce begins to burn in the kettle, and dark chocolate raisins are thrown in to continue the slow boil tradition. Oil slowly diffuses as the bakers chocolate wax drips off the burnt pecans. Big thanks for the bomber, tpkenned!
