2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
pour is dark chestnut brown with very little thin light tan head. The nose is huge, faint notes of chocolate, cloying sweetness, light ash note, tons of booze and a complete mess. The taste is almost as bad. The booze is overpowering, the sweetness is insanely high, it is completely unintegrated, the faint notes of actual malt body are completely blanketed by the huge abv and under attenuation. It is a burnt sugary mess. The body is thick and heavy, high carbonation. The burn and finish are similar to straight liquor mixed with pure sugar.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tepid mud brown, some large brown gravity bubbles. Nost is ethanol and hershey, hot and cloying, totally offensive in each of the contradictory elements. Flavor the same. What a fucking mess, synthetic and imbalanced, no sign of quality, balance, or even brewing. Hershey shots taste better. And as Chris put... "This is what was intended. This is at its peak."

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 17, 2012 Bottle; Pour is dark brown with a mild mannered khaki head in this glass; the retention is light, with non existent lacing. The nose is cooca, vanilla, molasses, caramel, and booze honestly. The flavor profile was really impressive out of the gate. It wasn’t initially boozy, but it was very heavy on the cocoa nibs and vanilla near the finish. What I found is that the booze came through later, though. The malt profile is dominant; more caramel, molasses, cocoa nibs, vanilla, dark fruits, booziness... biscuits.... light bitterness. Wow. This is quite the experience - Very nice for what it is

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2013 Poured from a 2013 bottle. The appearance is cloudy dark brown with no head at all. The aroma (wow!) is incredible, with a heavy boozy nose mixed with chocolate and sweet molasses. In my humble opinion, this has the second-best aroma for a stout I’ve ever tried (after Southern Tier’s Creme Brulee Stout). Unlike the 2012 vintage, the beer doesn’t hammer the taste buds on the first sip; instead the hot bourbon, dark chocolate, and a nice roasted sweetness combine for a more refined submission of the palate. Some vanilla joins the party late. A very hot, dry palate that finishes quickly. While it’s still a boozy beast, this vintage isn’t as hot as previous releases. Overall, just freakin’ gorgeous.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
22-MAR-2012, bottle @Papsø.
Black, low almost no beige head.
Wauw. Bourbon nose, chocolate, and alcohol, but hey...
...no way near 18%.
Taste is dark fruits, chocolate, and bourbon. "Morten, hvor blev du af...? Best chocolate beer ever.
No way as dense as expected. That is actually surprising given the 18% ABV.
But taste is out of this world:-)
