Vaiz (3523) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2014
Bottle @ Nieuwjaarsborrel 2014, hosted by MrHangover. Black pour, thin tan head. Aroma is full of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, bread, tobacco and molasses. Flavor is bitter and sweet in perfect balance, very smooth and creamy and still very well drinkable. Amazing brew.

dresden (909) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 13, 2013
Thick syrupy black. Aroma is strong of chocolate, heavily roast malt, some coffee. Thick and chewy beer with tons of chocolate, rich malt, some coffee and caramel. Exceeded my expectations!

harrymel (1503) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Been staring this down. Pours black, some central dome and rimming of light cocoa foam. Smells of molasses, alcohol, leather, some fudge and bits of cinnamon. Tastes like there is plenty of residual sugar, sweet, roasty, more molasses, some licorice, cocoa, coffee, more sugar. Heavy body with nice carb and a sticky finish. I’m glad the dark lord wasn’t too noticeable. That would have ruined this beer. Glad to try it, not worthy of seeking out IMO. Serving type: bottle 11-12-2012

Aroma is nice with some moderate roast and chocolate notes. Some toasted bread, caramel and toffee as well. Medium light dark fruit notes with a hint of alcohol. Pours black with a moderately small, thick, light mocha head. Average retention with moderate lacing and medium large legs. Flavor is similar to aroma with some moderate roast and lighter chocolate notes. Some light dark fruit, caramel and toffee character. Light tobacco and leather with a bit of an ashy character. Medium bitterness and a touch of a honey note. Lingering roast, ash, leather and dark fruit. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium carbonation. Medium low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall a fairly enjoyable stout but the ashy note is a bit strong for me and adds too much astringency. The leather is also a bit strong and I feel like the beer is facing some oxidation character and not handling it well.

OmegaX (1276) - Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Bottle. Snifter. Aroma is big time chocolate. Light coffee, some anise, and roasted notes are there. Chocolate dominates. Flavor is all chocolate and roast. Not as sweet as I thought it would be. Great stuff.

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2013
I never thought I’d get to try this one - thank you, OmegaX. The pour was and oily black and had aromas reminiscent of tobacco, chocolate covered raisins and coffee. This was a very filling brew with a strong roasted malt presence, and only the smooth chocolate body sort-of balancing it. I can dig it, especially given the strength.

Bottle from MeadMe, thank you so much for the opportunity! Pours a solid black color with a huge tan head that persists forever. Aromas of dark fruit with a hint of lactic, roast, chocolate, molasses, brown sugar, caramel, and earth. The flavor is big and sweet with lots of brown sugar and caramel. Bits of dark chocolate, smoke, dark fruits, and earth. Thick viscous body with a low level of carbonation and a thick syrupy creamy mouthfeel. This is one big thick sweet and sticky stout. I enjoyed sipping on this for most of the night.
