Pours out a burnt mahogany, medium body stout with fast dissipating tan head. Aromas of coffee, sweet smoke, tobacco, bitter coffee and more smoked malt. Flavor is sweet, round with a full oat body but thin and bitter to the palate. Finish is long and bitter engulfing the entire top half of your palate. Dominant players here are the DL (go figure) and beer geek brunch. Just about as bad as DL. barrel age it and you’ll have a winner!

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!

Bottle: Pours black......with a small tan ring. Aroma of dark chocolate, tobacco, dark fruit. Taste is chocolate malt, wood, raisin, tobacco. Strong , oily, ashy bittering. Rich and smooth. Excellent. Thanks to shrubber85 for sharing this as his 10k rate.

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 - Sweet vinous notes, deep roast and Woody bourbon notes. Jet brown with a light brown head. Dark chocolate, bourbon and nice roast. Bitter, sweet and nice.

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.

Finally drinking my bottle, now 4 and a half years old. Served in a tulip. The beer pours an oil slick black with a still thick mocha head that leaves great lacing as it shrinks to cover the top. Aroma is cocoa, coffee, soy sauce, wood, bourbon, and anise. Flavor is loaded with bitter chocolate, cocoa, coffee, bourbon, oak, black licorice, soy sauce, and vanilla. Thick, lingering, and still boozy. Outstanding blend of stouts. World class.

From notes (9/5/15) from a trade with HighWine -- cheers! The pedigree of beers that went into this beer are pretty insane, and so it’s no surprise this blend is pretty unreal as well. Big, chewy roasted malt flavor and a smooth and full mouthfeel all come together well. Some oxidization at this point, but still pretty minimal. Plus, between the wax and the name, this is just an undeniably cool bottle.

Nearly a 6 year old beer at this point. Pours a deep black brown. No head. Aromas of chocolate, fudge, dark fruits. Sweet with slight oxidation. Thick mouthfeel. Pretty good for its age.
