Bomber. Black with tan head. Aroma is roast, some chocolate, faint coffee. Flavor is a mess--dark fruit, chocolate, and coffee, but no smooth progression of flavors: just an immediate assault of all of this. Finish is long and almost hoppy--not sure where that’s coming from. Not bad, but not as good as any of the individual parts. Certainly not a top notch stout.

Sampled at Mechazilla’s epic insanity tasting session. Insane blend of flavors. Drinks like a super complex cherry stout wine, deviliciously smooth. A crazy extreme brew, which is why I usually love these so much!

For 10K, decided to finally open this beer and to enjoy this during the start of the 100th Indianapolis 500. Beer and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway - two things that have given me so much joy in my life (and usually at the same time). Had to wait until the end of "Back Home Again in Indiana" per my tradition. Bottle. Lactic/vinous raisin, cherry, coffee, dark chocolate malt, and wood ash aroma. Black with small tan head. Sweet raisin, creamy coffee, dark chocolate malt, and moderately bitter hay/orange peel. Spectacular balance and body. Aged beautifully. Great way to end 10K and start the next.

Bottle pour at Tom’s. A magical sounding blend of beasts. Dark brown pour with a tan fading head. Big beer, sweet vanilla and caramel aroma. Flavor is roast heavy. Coffee constant. Bold lingering finish. Intense beer. Very fun.

Bottle shared at Mechazilla event. Explosive nose with bakers chocolate, milk chocolate, fennel seed and espresso. As it warms the chocolate takes off and more prune, cherry and plum come out. Easy to drink and the alcohol is completely hidden. Smooth and decadent. Finish has some fruit and more dry bakers chocolate with a touch of roasted espresso. A great beer. So drinkable.

Big sweet nose with sour plums, chocolate, raisins, chocolate, more like a barley wine but insanely good BW. Smooth body, treacle a and caramel, dark cherries and the booze is soo well hidden. So smooth. Sour brownies and plums lingering finish.
