So thick it coats the glass like a syrup, flavor is very strong, deep dark roasted malt, caramel, toffee, dark brown sugar, bourbon. Very little alcohol flavor. What really stands out is the way this thick material coats the inside of your mouth like motor oil. May be the thickest beer I’ve ever tasted. Shared at Curtis’s (Nashville’s Sweetwarer Representative) tasting.

Bottle to snifter. Pours dirty syrupy motor oil black with a faint head that is red brown and the bubbles struggle to make it to the top. Aroma is belgian yeast soy chocolate and molasses. Taste is roasted malt chocolate belgian yeast and soy with vanilla alcohol and wood. Palate is full thick syrup like and warming and dry. Really glad this happened!

[Bottle] shared by Jeff. Thanks a ton! Pours unbelievably thick black with a dark brown head. The head looks like a milkshake. Watching the bubbles rise to the top is like watching bubbles in a syrup bottle. Aroma is really mild. Probably suppressed by the persistent head. But there is some chocolate, roast, coffee, but hardly any alcohol. The alcohol is definitely on the flavor, though. Ridiculously viscous. Extremely sweet on the front, but super bitter and roasty on the finish. Midpalate is a bit fruity, odd quinine-like astringency, some smokiness. Nice in small doses, but fuck, this beer packs a punch.

DalzAle (2012) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Bottle thanks to grownfool! Super thick oily black pour, syrupy carbonation and an aroma of a little bourbon and dark roasty malt. Flavor is super rich and thick chocolate, strong bourbon, peat/smoke, vanilla and a little alcohol heat (but not anywhere near the 26% noted on the bottle.) Glad I got to try this one!

This beer is insanity. It is far and away the most viscous beer I have ever had. It is like drinking syrup; tasty, diabetes inducing syrup. Makes Dark Lord drink like Michelob Ultra by comparison. Like a cocktail of Hershey’s, bourbon, espresso, and Madeira. Virtually no burn from the 26%: extremely dangerous.

Bottle from BelgBeerGeek. Thanks Vincent!! Aroma of dark dried fruits, bourbon, caramel, espesso, cherries, molasses and wonderful port tones. Very dark brown that sits black in the glass. No head and no lace. Flavor is very sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is very full bodied and oily sicky soft. Alcohol is very well hidden. Overall a very well brewed super impy stout. Loved the aged barely wine like port tones and sticky sweetness. Loved it.

Oily black pour with no head. Reddish brwn highlights. Bitter that gets worse as you drink it. It becomes not such a great bitterness. OK smell. Unbalanced. Thanks Liam.

25cl Bottle shared at a small RB/BA tasting (thanks to hannont for sharing)... Poured black as night with no head. Little to no carbonation if any. Dark, burnt, toasty sugars with strong fortified fruits qualities. Surprisingly drinkable and balanced and not over bearing on the alcohol heat. I wouldn’t be surprised if the actually abv was lower that 26%. Mild roast and ash with a hint of smokey phenols, and dark, dark chocolate.
