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.

Bottle to glass at Joe and Maria’s in Norwood, MA. delicious aroma. There is nice roastiness as well as some great bittersweet chocolate. Faint bit of coffee. Dark oily thick pour with moderate off white head. Moderate carbonationand heavy mouthfeel. Nice and oily. Love it. Really a big fan of this beer.

Pours black, opaque. Huge dark tan head. Aroma is well-sugared coffee and some fruitcake. Velvety palette. Chocolate finish. Will probably develop a lot as it warms.

W aromacie zaskakująco niewiele się dzieje, ciut czekolady, ziemistość, po czasie się nasila, jest przyjemnie ale oczekiwania są wyższe. W smaku zbalansowane, czekolada, przypalony karmel, niezbyt pełne, lekkie kakao na finiszu. Piana szybko znika. Pijalne, dobrze ukryty alkohol. Świetne opinie, spora cena, a tak przeciętne piwo...

RafeAU (558) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 7, 2015
Bomber in LA. Rich, mildly sweet, malt and roast like an imperial stout but with big hop aroma too. Good beer, should rerate when more sober...

Kita (1598) - Koper, SLOVENIA - NOV 2, 2015
Bottle, 0.65l, shared with Tomaz. Pours almost black color with thick creamy light brown head and fair lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, bourbon, oak and vanilla. Taste starts with sweet and rich caramel malt with roasted undertones and chocolate, follows by licorice and dark fruits, mouthfeel is warming with well hidden alcohol, while finish is mild bitter. Full body, syrupy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Strong, smooth and just fantastic...

Great beer. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Taste is aggressive to start, but it has a long warming finish. Beautiful in the glass.
