Definitely not your Dad’s Wimpy 30 weight. An enormous & luscious dark ale that’s as opaque and dark as the most well used motor oils.

Bottled 650ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. Pitch black, medium sized brown head, chocolate in the nose. Heavy roasted malt, chocolate, licorice, dried fruits and alcohol with rather sweet finish. Dried fruits and roastiness in the aftertaste with back up alcohol. Couldn’t find myself in this one.

esox (1164) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Bottled @ Roosteri. Bottled 07/06/12. Almost black beer, dark beige head. Truly intense malt flavor, oily liquid bread, sweet dough, raw cocoa and loads of fragrant, light dried fruits and slightly acidic berries. Deep, deep maltiness, liquid bread, sticky and slightly acrid toast. Long aftertaste with cold coffee and loads of raw chocolate. Slightly oaky finish has aged sherry notes with firm, clean bitterness. Full body, velvety soft texture with woody dry finish.

ibrubeer (159) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Draft @ The Blackbird, SMF. Roasty notes in aroma. Black color with reddish tint on edges, Little to no head. Very malty flavor, with roast, a little sweetness, touch of molasses. Doesn’t taste as alcoholic as it is, very smooth. Full malty mouthfeel. Overall, a delicious Strong Ale!

TheCametron (1935) - CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle. Not my first. I love the Older Viscosity with all my heart and this is almost as good. Big flavour with Chocolate, fag-ash, vanilla, stewed prunes and coffee all making an appearance. Bold and well balanced. Wonderful stuff.

tomekboniek (149) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 27, 2015
Butelka 0,65 l. Czarna, nieprzejrzysta barwa, gęsta niczym zużyty olej silnikowy (patrz etykieta na butelce) konsystencją mocno przypomina RISy. Aromat ciemnych owoców, wanilii, kawy, czekolady. Alkohol bardzo dobrze ukryty.

Bottled date of 10.23.13. Poured from a bomber into a tulip on 06.20.14. A: 5 finger tan head that stays. Midnight black with no red in the glass. S: Lots of chocolate. Also dark fruit, cherry, and cream. It’s almost mousse-like. T: Chocolate, mousse, and cream dominate. Cherry and a tiny bit of oak woodiness are subtle. M: Creamy smooth. O: Wow, this blew me away! I was not expecting such complexity and flavor. The cherry really comes on strong to mix with the chocolate and slight oak. The alcohol is hidden very well and nothing throws off the balance. This is a favorite for sure.
