stumpyiliz (217) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2013
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!

TimE (4730) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 4, 2016
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.

Art (2849) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2016
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.

finol (2846) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2015
Bottle from a trade. Pours heavy black with a tan head. Sweet with lots of roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. I think the individual beers are all better.

hirigalzkar (2734) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2015
Bottle. Balanced and smooth stout with notes of vanilla and milk chocolate. The right ammount of alcohol in the aftertaste.

Nose is caramel, peanuts, chocolate, licorice, cream, port wine and hints of coffee liqueur and pecan nuts. Taste is dark chocolate, caramel, coffee, cocoa and hints of salty licorice, tar, nougat, nuts and dark sugars. Full body, medium carbonation. Lovely complex blend of several epic stouts, and it shows. Wow. Sooo good.
