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.

Very good. Tastes like a coffee porter. I see this compared to Serpents Stout - for the price, I’ll take this, but for overall quality I think the Serpents stout wins for me.

Davros (1946) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 21, 2014
Pours black/very dark brown with a large tan head. Nose shows cocoa, toasty malt, figs and nutty malt. Flavours include more roast, sweet burnt toast, some pine and resin. Too highly carbonated.

freretoc (700) - Besançon, FRANCE - SEP 21, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 37.5, couleur noire pétrole, pas de mousse ni d’effervescence, nez complexe sur le côté bois de chêne et la vanille, en bouche c’est ultra puissant, ça commence avec le café, puis le café au lait et ensuite gros côté grillé très noir

TheJester (1883) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2014
750 mL bottle. I’m assuming that this is mis-labelled here. It’s not an ASA. Or a barleywine, which is what the name led me to believe. Way too much dark/chocolate/black/roasted malt flavour. If I had to label it I’d say it’s a double black IPA. And a darn good one.

Bottle. Dark fruit aroma. Taste is roasty with dark fruit and vanilla. Viscous body. Very good.

TheDog (525) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2014

YogiBeera (2475) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Beautiful pitch bleach thick looking brew with a nice froth latte head on top. Milk chocolate bitter coffee bean nose. Silky thick , slightly bitter with a long slight numbing taste.

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 (2318) - 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.
