Drake’s 10k. Nice to have a Three Floyd’s beer, been a while. Poured black. Aroma of piney hops over coffee and chocolate. Flavor had loads of pepsin, otherwise a match. This worked for me, quite nicely.

Bottle @ tasting. Dark brown w/ mocha head and nice lacing. Perfumy hoppy aroma. I agree with stale. A little wonky flavor- sour & roasty.

Bottle thanks to Tectactoe. Aroma is super hoppy. Pine, chocolate cake, some dankness and grass. Tastes moderately bitter. Fairly dry. Dusty chocolate and pine. Chalky mouthfeel. Good aroma but not a big fan of the taste and mouthfeel. Still pretty solid.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate and pine with a touch of roast. It pours a dark brown with some orange highlights and a small beige head that fades to a minimal film outlined by a soapy ring. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate with a touch of molasses. The finish has some light-moderate pine with some light roasted malt. It’s medium-full bodied with mild carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel.

With Z, pours a dark pitch black color with a beautiful light foamy head. Stunning appearance ! Nose is hoppy, malt, and burnt charcoal.... also with some resin and hard pine. A lot of alcohol on the palate on the first taste, followed by a heap load of pine, resin and bitterness..... an imperial stout or a black IPA ? Mellows out after sitting. Finishes on the dry tasting notes and the long alcohol notes ! Quaff Score 7 / 10

Bomber. Pours pitch black with a brown head and aroma of roasted malt and chocolate with fruity hops. Taste is strong, roasted malt, chocolate, and liquorice with alcohol coming through along with big hop and pine notes leading to a long, warming finish
