draft at RBWG 2016. An absolute amazing deep cocoa powder nose. Just like huffing Hershey powder. Like flourless cake. Pitch black with minimal head. Taste follows with a drying cocoa powder finish. Spot on

11.2 oz bottle from Party Source. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have dark chocolate, roasted malt, bigger wood character, sweet lactose, this has a very slick texture, and mild to moderate bitterness to the finish, the wood is fairly strong with this one, interesting beer.

adster (640) - HUNGARY - JAN 26, 2016
Selymes állagú, sűrű, fekete színű, folyékony desszert, melyet már az illata is előjelez, porcukros kávés, tejszínes, kakaós aromái vannak. Ízében beköszön egy vékony mentás hálóval bevont, tamarindos, vaníliás, kókuszos egyveleg, faháncsos és étcsokoládés jegyek gondoskodnak a komplexitásról. Nem az a kiugró alkoholfok jellemzi, mégis testes és intenzív, mintha csak egy ’imperial’ verziót kortyolgatnánk, melyhez a visszafogott szénsavasság ugyancsak hathatós segítséget nyújt. Jól megbolondított stoutot hoztak össze a készítők.

RABinCO (1508) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 17, 2016
From a 12 oz. bottle into a plastic cup in a Destin hotel room. Pours a thick, creamy, deep drown. Absolutely no head. Carbonation overall is very light. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, sugar, slightly woody. Taste is bitter chocolate with light hints of espresso. Bitter and sweet lactose. Smooth, dark roasted coffee. A little bit of wood on the finish. Very easy drinking. Lightly warming.

When on family holiday in Florida I went on a big hunt across Tampa to find a particular Cigar City beer. So, nice to find one, albeit a collaboration with the excellent Siren, in Beer Gonzo which is less then half a mile from my house. Almost black, and unlike its stronger cousins it keeps some of its lovely brown head and there is plenty of lacing. Body is thick and creamy. Nose is mostly milk chocolate, but there is also plummy fruit and something a bit tangy. Really good taste - coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, and there is a bit of bite akin to chili. Fantastic beer.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2016 Appearance: Black with a nice big creamy brown head. Aroma: Roasted malts, smoke, chocolate,Wood, red apples. Taste: Dark chocolate bitterness, a hint of Cofee, roasted malts, some tamarind, and wood Aftertaste is a true chocolate bitterness. Creamy, soapy mouthfeel, Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Very well executed stout which rich taste can rival with it’s booy big imperial brothers.
