Vintage 2013 (Je pense que c’est le seul vintage qui existe). Une bière brune foncée et sa mousse dans les mêmes teintes. Au versement, je remarque une certaine minceur. La mousse quitte nos verres assez rapidement. Au nez, les fruits rouges et la barrique boisée se lovent autour de parfums de malts rôtis, de cacao et de mélasse. Au goût, voilà des cerises et des raisins dans une mixture chocolatée et légèrement torréfiée. En bouche, j’ai l’impression d’un corps moyen-mince avec une bonne effervescence et une texture crémeuse. La finale est très intéressante, fruitée par la barrique et légèrement douce par ses notes de caramel foncé. Une autre bière pour célébrer mes 42 ans. Merci à M-A B pour l’ensemble de la dégustation.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thick black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of cocoa, oak, red wine, some anise and dark fruits into a bit of brown sugar, molasses into some vanilla, slight spice. Taste was a mix of dark chocolate, coffee, red wine, dark fruit into a bit of yeast, some oak, finishing slightly sweet.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Bottle: Dark, dark brown pour, not excessively thick looking with almost no head or bubbles that form after a soft pour. Aroma of wood that’s been lathered in semi-vinous booze & moderate maple syrup. A little bit of cocoa as well as some of your typical roasted malt, charred sugar, & burnt caramel stout-y aromas. Lots & lots of brown sugar on the palate. Sweet, balancing the booze nicely. Less vinous, more just a generic booziness on the tongue with a strong, yet well controlled tannic presence throughout. Light notes of bitter cocoa, mallow foam, & molasses lingering into the sticky finish.

Enjoyed at the 2014 Firestone Walker Invitational. Is there rye in here? The sharp nose would suggest as much. Coffee, vanilla, pepper both green and black. Flavor is odd -- piny hops lead; milk chocolate and vanilla follow. A sharp, spicy, soap-flavored front before a smooth stout finish.

Sampled at DLD 2014. Wow. It poured a dark brown to black color with a brown head. The aroma was of dark fruits and slight notes of peaches or grapes. The taste was similar with more of the fruity wine notes. Good stuff.

hayduke (3925) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 26, 2014
Sampled at the bottle sharing at the Hampton Inn on Dark Lord Dave eve. This was jet black it seemed to me. Rich tan head. Very thick. Nose of dark ripe fruit and chocolate. Very bold rich body. Thick in the mouth. Flavor is really rich, showing dark ripe fruit, chocolate, wood, and bitter hops. And oh yes, vanilla. A superb beer.

MrHangover (3493) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2014
Bottle 413/522, courtesy of kermis. Pours a very dark brown, almost black beer with a tiny ring of beige head on top. Aroma of sweet molasses, touch of vanilla and has some slight woody characteristics as well. Flavor has this typical 3Floyds touch to it. Quite sweet and sugar, loads of barrel and even a touch of some sweet yeast going on. Very enjoyable to drink this bad boy, but not as interesting as I’ve might have hoped it to be.
