COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

pivo (2566) - GERMANY - AUG 29, 2014
Looks like motor oil. Huge spongy head. Licorice sweetness with an espresso end. Massive beer. Leaves a very bitter roasted taste that lingers forever. Nice.

jbruner (2315) - 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 (331) - 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.

bottle shared with mowbeer and skykob, picked up at pivni rozmanitost in prague - on sale due to being 2 years old, not that we were complaining. almost black with a purple tinge and minimal beige head; aroma of choc-coated caramel; hints of tobacco, ash, vanilla cream; some alcohol showing but warming and pleasant. good stuff

Bomber from MSM. Pours black thick tan head. Scent is a roasty chocolate one. Taste is dark chocolate, alcohol and cherries. Roasty flavor hangs around a bit. Good beer.

venom666 (345) - Alicante, SPAIN - JUL 22, 2014
Jet black color with beige medium-lasting head. Dark chocolate on the aroma, roasted malts and ripe fruits are also present. Style is similar than an imperial Stout. Medium bodied. taste is full of roasted malts, chocolate and toffeee. Aftertaste has a persistent bitterness, full of coffee and chocolate. Well balanced.
