Bottle shared by cptnspeed1..thanks Brad! - Drank this one blind. Big black body with a huge foamy tan head. Nose is medium roast, molasses, and a slight nuttiness. A touch of sweetness, but this is mostly pretty dry. A bit of oak. Has a nice molasses and sweet corn syrup taste, with medium roast and a dark chocolate base. Sweet. Big thick body with a nice carbonation. Iím glad I tried this blind because i had no preconceptions on it. Good stuff.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2013 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours jet black with a small dark tan head leaving sticky lacing clinging to the glass once the head dies down. Nose is an amazing balance of sweetness and mocha tones. Lots of booze and intensity mix well with notes of creme brulee, vanilla, coffee, dark cocoa and a touch of smoke. Nose is unbelievably appealing. The sweetness adds the slightest note of smooth vanilla ice cream and it works so well. The taste doesnít have as much sweetness, instead focuses on heavy cocoa and coffee tones. Thick mocha like with a touch of vanilla and smoke. Finishes quite boozy which is to be expected at almost 14%. Very big and intense brew but with a good amount of drinkability for something so big. Full, heavy mouth feel which flows well from the sweetness and soft, prickly carbonation. I try not to buy into the hype over beers but I really think this is one of the best beers Iíve ever had. Should age beautifully

22 oz. bottle shared by bsuedekum- thanks again, Blake! Heís been holding on to this for me. Pours a deep, opaque brown color with about a centimeter of dark tan head. There is a creaminess that initially pops out of the aroma, quickly followed by roasted malts, root beer, dark chocolate, toast, and molasses. Flavor of roasted malts, charred wood, brown sugar, molasses, earthy hops, dark chocolate, and pine. Medium-full bodied, with a roasty, bitter mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The aroma didnít wow me here, and I was prepared to be pretty disappointed, but the flavor was solid. I still like each of the parts better than the sum.

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Thought about this for rating 2,000...glad I chose to go a different direction! Beautiful squid ink body with a light khaki head that left ringlets all the way down the glass. Aroma was subtle chocolate, caramel malt, vanilla, and toffee. Flavor is uncomfortably sweet...eye-crossing, in fact. Lots of vanilla bean, brown sugar, touch of molasses, & slight brownie batter. A little hot. The individual components are definitely better than the sum of their parts. Not sure how Mikkeller, 3 Floydís, Surly, & Struise would settle on this. I know my expectations might have been high but, come on!

Bottle pours black with some tan head that quickly dissipates. Aromas are toffee, caramel, and coffee. Tastes are roasted malt, toffee, caramel, chocolate, coffee, and some raisin. Body is full with average carbonation. Very complex and it keeps changing through the long finish. Very well done beer for a blend. Glad I was able to try this one.

Pours a jet black with tan head. They choice a great selection of beers to blend for their 15th anniversary. Each beer adds to the complexity of this tasty treat. There is a nice amount of oaky woody bourbony taste. The coffee and chocolate shine thru nicely. This beer was as good as the hype, not something I usually say.

_honus_ (11) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Poured with a half inch of tan head that dissipates quickly. Dark mocha color and big boozy legs. Nose reeks of roasted coffee beans, sweet dark chocolate, and noticeable alcohol. Taste is immediately reminiscent of the beer geek brunch, primarily roasted bitter coffee with big chocolate notes and a hint of vanilla. The finish is characterized primarily by the high alcohol. Low carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel that lingers. I actually prefer this over the beer geek brunch, but it seems to be all that I can taste (or at least think about) when I sip it.

Bottle; Pour is cola brown with a fine bubbled khaki head int his glass. Average retention, light lacing is present here. The nose is butterscotch, roast, coffee, and cocoa by my estimation. Different, for sure. I donít know exactly how I feel about this - but Iíve never had anything like it. The flavor profile reveals bitter hops , definitely different for a RIS; more butterscotch, caramel, vanilla, cocoa, ash, pine, roasty notes and coffee beans ; this is an interesting beer for sure - yet I donít think itís a perfect marriage.

750ml bottle shared with Preismj after Hunahpu, pours a dark black color, sweet malt, pine, chocolate, coffee, hops, and some vanilla. Flavors of booze, chocolate, ash, pine, coffee, and vanilla come through. Surprising there is some unexpected hop flavor that comes in the middle of drink which was rather pleasant. Overall a pretty good beer that I am glad I got to sample.
