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.

First of all, this is totally an imperial stout (why is this listed as an American Strong Ale?) Deep, dark brown (completely opaque) with a light brown head. The aroma and flavor had tones of milk chocolate, prunes, cherries, alcohol, and a genlte roastiness. The feel was thick, very wet, with medium carbonation. Very nice beer.

jbruner (2296) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle shared thanks to Tim and Rachel at Proof happy hour! Pours a deep black with hints of purple red, bubbly tan head that leaves light lace. Aroma and taste of vanilla, molasses, roast, slight bakers chocolate. Well hidden booze, but still some warming on the way down, nicely done.

adster (203) - HUNGARY - AUG 17, 2014
Illatában pirított magvak, lágyan pörkölt kávészemek, kesudió, mandula, mogyoró gömbölyű aromái jelentkeznek elsőként, melyhez egy égetett fás, kissé fanyar karakter csatlakozik. Éjfekete színű testére egy kakaószínű hab telepszik, mely egy testes, közepesen szénsavas és igencsak száraz jelleget takar. Kávés, fás, karcos jegyek simulnak össze krémesen, majd hamuszerűen kesernyés, karcos komponensek vadítják meg az összképet. Fázós esték melengető italaként képzelném el leginkább, mely a porterek, stoutok, old ale-ek szerelmeseit egyszerre elégíti ki bámulatos sokszínűsége által.

RedSox2004 (1232) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Opaque black; no light gets through, two-finger, dense, coffee colored head and nice lace. Aroma of dark chocolate, pound cake, oatmeal, roasted grains, and dark fruit. Similarly complex flavor profile that includes chocolate cake, molasses, chocolate chip cookie dough, brownies, coffee and toffee. Gentle hop bitterness and a slightly warming alcohol presence also play a part. Full body, minimal carbonation, silky smooth mouthfeel, and a wll balanced finish.
