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.

Thechasm442 (662) - Manhattan, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2012
22 oz bottle, bottled 9/7/02 served in a Duvel tulip. Pours a rich black with a thick. dark tan head that takes forever to shrink down and leaves ok lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, oak, raisins, molasses, and a sharp hoppiness. Taste is more malts. Roasted barley, smoke, wood, and somewhat piney hops dominate. There is coffee and bakers chocolate as well. Mouthfeel is medium and alcohol is well hidden. It drinks like a porter meets black ipa. Real good.

Bottle. Black, with a thick brown head. Sweetish aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, vanilla and dark fruits. The flavour is roasted malty, with chocolate and coffee, notes of wood and vanilla, and a warm roasted finish. Tasty.

Vanilla, coconut, a little ink and cocoa nibs in the nose, bitter, ink, medicinal/ alcoholic in the mouth, but the alcohol becomes subtle in the second sip. Full body, a little fizzy, iodine in the finish. Rich and good.

Antonio369 (109) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2016
65cl bottle, served in snifter glass. Poured pitch black with a two finger mocha tan head. Looks amazing in glass. Aroma: Dark espresso coffee, lots of vanilla, caramel, dark chocolate, dark fruit. Taste: Espresso coffee, dark chocolate, loads of vanilla, licorice, chocolate chip cookies, caramelized creme brulee, dates, plum, toffee, dark fruit, oak, whole wheat bread, currants. Medium carbonation. This is so thick, creamy & chewy it almost drinks like a milkshake, awesome! A full body with vanilla and dark espresso beans in the long finish. This beer is classed as an American Strong Ale. It looks and drinks like a stout but it kinda lacks the roastiness of a stout. Anyway this is an absolutely amazing brew!

KoNrRiI (1095) - Århus, DENMARK - APR 30, 2016
0.65 bottle. A very dark brown color and a humungous, brown head. Aroma of cookies, this is the absolute epitome of cookishness and biscuitness complete with brown sugar, dough, waffle chocate, and a hint of almonds - a splendid fragrance reminiscent of a mixture of Quatro and Bafomet. Taste is sweet, malty, chocolaty, delicately smacking of alcohol. A full body, a creamy texture, and a flat carbonation. Finish is medium long, somewhat diluted, the shackles of alcohol seem to be straining towards the end. Overall not a bad beer; if only it continued the style of its top-of the-class aroma until the end.

Deep black brown, tan small head. Deep molasses, caramel, light anise. Some roastiness and vanila. Sweet, decent bitterness. Heavyish, upfront alcohol, very oily. Awesome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
