Giant brew with tan head and jet black pour. Thick head nitrogen like bubbly. Coffee some bitterness that was exceptionally balanced. Some maple on finish, with mild dark fruity finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml ceramic bottle, 2011 vintage, 11%. Black, decent foamy tan head, some sparse lacing. Aroma is pine, chocolate syrup, touch of bread, spice. Body is medium, touch of carbonation, a little foamy. Taste is malt-forward, has a little cardboard which could be oxidation or it could be the oats, some tangy alcohol coming through, ashy towards the finish, long dry salty aftertaste. Very smooth drinking, but quite simple. Pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2008 bottle from the rot box. Pours a black appearance with a big foamy dark brown head. The aroma shows some signs of age - a little cardboard and bready notes. A fair amount of roast, dark fruits (figs, plums), port wine, and Belgian chocolates in the nose. The mouth feel is pretty thick and gooey though the flavor isnít overly sweet. High boost. Lots of roast, pine, dark chocolate, oats, and burnt malts. Drinks pretty good (and Iím sure even better when itís not seven years old!)

On tap at Popeye in Tokyo, served in a snifter. Oil black with a nice tan head. Big bold coffee and tobacco taste with coffee aroma. Some sourness present as well. Chocolate comes out as it warms up to room temperature. Alcohol taste is also present. Syrupy, heavy texture...like sorghum. Nice bold stout!

Delicious. Dark black pour with a tan head. Very full mouthfeel. Rich roasted malts and chocolates, and you canít tell itís high ABV. Deadly!

Thanks to brunnsbe for the bottle (bottled 2007, BBF October 2009). Coffee and tobacco in aroma. Almost no head. This stout is somewhat hoppy but the taste has at least some vanilla. A very good beer.
