Sampled at the SCCCT event at Friendship Brewery. 2012 Bottle. It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of roasted malts and dark fruits. The taste was similar to the aroma with more roasted malts, dark fruits, some sweetness and just an overall awesome brew. Need to try it again.

Holy cow. I gave up rating beers long time ago competing with my 1000+ friends, but this one I had to rate. Best beer I have ever tasted I guess. Or at least best I have ever had the time and mood to rate. Of course i have to make space for possibly better beers so 4.7 it is. Black with light head. Thick. Perfectly Sweet, sour, salty, bitter, I dont even. Smells like rubber, rugbrød, gasoline, teen spirit. Or it might not, i’m just not skilled enough to determine it. I’ll never again drink anything but this beer ( I would wish).

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2015 vintage. Jet black, dark mocha head. Rich, Internet roasty Aroma. Burnt, charred malts. Some solid hops, loads of cocoa, and some soy with subtle dark fruit. Some alcohol comes through and warms in the mouth feel. The body is thick and viscous, with a soft carb. The finish is incredibly roasty, with a subtle sweetness and a a medium bitterness. Burnt espresso and cocoa power dominate the finish with a dry roasty edge. Nice stuff.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thick on the pour.. dark dark brown head.. the brew is of course black... swirls give nice dark legs... great retention
Nose has tidal waves of dark malts ... fairly abundant hops that mesh well with dark chocolate and French Roast.. Honestly, no complaints.
The bitterness from the hops is apparent and combines with some drying dark malts and moves into nice RIS characteristics.. fudgey brownies.. grassy and mild citrus hops are pretty much there throughout the flavor.. coffee remnants that have a bit of dark malt bite... dry finish has some citrus hops and drying cocoa and bits of coffee....
Body is pretty dialed in.. carbonation seems maybe a bit high.. but it may be too warm at this point..
Reminds me alot of the 110K.. but the hops seemed more aromatic and somehow balanced.... pretty damn good beer.

650ml bottle enjoyed @ home, 2013 vintage. Pours black with a firm beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, quite hoppy, malty, caramel, chocolate, vanilla, raisins and brown sugar. Flavour is medium bitter and medium sweet. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation. Finish is sweet, surprisingly hoppy and a bit of warming alcohol.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2016 2013 bottle. thanks to some great ratebeerian for the trade. aged for a couple of years. nice stout aroma with some dark fruits. palate a 4 not a 5. Taste was complex. This is a sweet stout, but never gets cloying; I am sure the 2-3 years of aging knocked out most of the hops. Taste has chocolate, small amount of dark fruits, licorice, and probably 6 more things... sweetness does get to you toward end of bottle; still a great stout!
