22oz bottle. Black pour, viscous very. Dark brown creamy head. Nutty, dark cacao, toasted burnt grain, bourbon oak, some fusel. Very heavy, thick bodied. Perhaps the thickest beer Iíve ever had. Better as it warms. Notes of unsweetened cocoa, dark fruits, charred oak. ABV well hidden, huge flavor, itís a big one. Finishes with heavy pumpernickle bread character. Itís a sipper! (4131)

Dr_MedievAle (195) - Alabama, USA - JUL 16, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2014 2013 version on tap at Blackstone in Iowa City, IA. Aroma: soy and vanilla and charred pecan. Appearance: soy sauce. Creamy mocha head. Decent retention. Taste: soy, vanilla, cola flavors give way to slightly spicy alcohol notes, sweet caramel sauce. Good alcohol masking, though. Palate: soy sauce...slick. slightly refreshing. 2014 w00t stout 2.0: on tap at Falling Rock during GABF. Smells of blueberry biscotti, bourbon, chocolate. taste of blueberry infused bourbon and some funky yeast cheese, chocolate, biscuits. delicious.

Dark brown pour with a dark khaki head with great legs on the glass. Aroma is toasted pecan sweetness, anise, roasted malt, chocolate liquor, and roast. Taste follows with a bit of heat from the booze. Tasty stuff.

Bulk_Carrier (2227) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass and a snifter. The appearance was a nice looking black color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated within about a good minute before leaving some nice looking foamy lacing trying to stick to the sides of the glass. The smell had a wheaty/grainy like aroma over top of a light vanilla/chocolate coating some nuts here and there. The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors and combined to enrich a nice subtle sweet nutty flavoring encapsulating my taste buds. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with not much of a sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed to be fairly smooth and velvety as just seemed to round out all of the flavors. Overall, wow, what a nice mesmerizing beer well worth my time and money.

Caytinator (963) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 13, 2014
22oz bomber. About 1.5 years old, aged. Heavy pour, very viscous, black with a tan head. Whisky is apparent in the taste and a bit in the aroma as well, which is rich and well-developed. Taste is also complex, with the bitter chocolate, and the toast getting the most attention. Well-d0ne!
