Bottle. Dark brown pour with very little head. Sugary aroma of caramel, chocolate, red wine, and some dark fruit. Tastes too sugary sweet for me and seems a bit oxidized. Big chocolate syrup and dark fruit but also some cardboard and stale coffee. Medium body. I think I would’ve liked this better a couple years ago but I still think it would’ve been too sweet then too.

Lets go to the Jockey Box
Fred’s Softball, shared by friend, not in dining room, for make the taste!
Pours black with a good head and decent lacing on the glass.
The aroma offers a bunch of stuff, raisins, chocolate, port wine, rum... booziness. It works together nicely for sure.
The flavor offers sweetness & richness with a low level of bitterness. Most bitterness offered comes in the form of roasty malt and coffee character both of which are modest players in the ball game. It’s chocolaty, it’s got a lot of dark fruit and a good bit of booziness.
My review makes it sound like I don’t like it, which isn’t true at all. It’s huge, and it’s fun, not sure I’d want a lot of it... but I sure do like it real good.

Bomber: Shared with Iluvatarmilan: Served in a Chouffe glass at 13 degrees Celsius:

Aroma is just like a BIPA and some slight butterscotch hints.
Flavours of deep dark roast, soy, bitters, mocha, dark chocolate, some liquorice, chalk, cacoa, some hops, quite refreshing for an Imperial Stout!
Aftertaste is a mix of liquorice, roast, dark chocolate, hops, bitters..
Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, close to full bodied.

Astonishing beer, which is little surprise considering its components. Depth, strength, hoppiness, chocolate, coffee. Grains. Mutes the considerable abv amazingly well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep black pour with no head. Aroma of sweet sugar, a lot like Dark Lord in the aroma. Taste is explosion of bitterness and sweet that play on each other nicely. I can taste elements of all 4 beers. Bitter coffee, sweet toffee, candy & roast. Huge chewy mouth. Very interesting and also tasty.
