This marvelous creation is like the perfect bourbon barrel aged Imperial Stout/Rochefort 10-like hybrid...huge in every aspect, and absolutely savory, with a lot of bourbony esters, and yet never overwhelmingly bourbony, maintaining a beautiful balance of roastiness, dark fruits, tobacco, and bitter chocolate all the way to the voluptuous finish. WOW!

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2012 Scura, intenso aroma di fruttato, alcol devastante e una bella dose di luppolo. Birra della madonna, complessa e unica nel suo genere.

One of the best beers i ever had. Coconut, cream, chocolate, cocio, vanilla, bourbon. Soft, smooth and light mouth feel. Extremely well made beer.

Blurs the line between a Strong Ale and a Stout. Definite bourbon flavor from the aging. Yet smooth and balanced for 12%Abv. Not boozy at all. Just plan good. Sip and savor!! Expensive and worth it. Simply a great beer to experience and enjoy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oh man I love this one, a jet black color, like a black hole sucking in the light, with a beautiful expression of bitterness from the roast.

One of the world’s best RIS this has it all. Deep dark malt notes, that are a trip, the flavor goes and goes.

Bottle from JohnC. Pour was pitch black-brown, even a little choco colored thin head on the top that fizzled quickly but left behind a nice ring, regenerable with a swirl, active carbonation in the mouthfeel later. The aroma was oaky wood, chocolate, maple, bourbon. The flavor was all of that, some molasses and licorice under there, just a wonderful BA brew, the best one I’ve had in a while, beer was actually there. Mouthfeel had a nice tingle from the carbonation and alcohol, yet this thing was a beer. Man, that finish was outstanding, perfect highlight to the whole experience. Great stuff, and thanks to John for this one! Top 50, no doubt.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2009 Bottled at home. Opaque black, no head whatsoever. Super complex nose, malts, caramel, dark fruit, liquorice, liquor and much more. Complex flavor as well, pretty sweet but the flavor is developing during every sip, bitter and alcoholic, but also malts, coffee, liquorice and some wood-notes. This stuff is extremely good. Thanks you caesar for suggesting to buy this, i just can’t get enough of this.
