Bacterial (1419) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle shared by The Hoff @ Armin’s - thanks! Wow this is excellent. Huge maple coffee and boozy nose. Thick, boozy, coffee and maple. A little harsh in the the finish would be the only bad thing to say about this beer. Fantastic. Tastes almost like an iPad.

DalzAle (1967) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle sample thanks to THEHOFF! Dark black pour, almost no carbonation and an aroma of strong coffee and a little booze. Flavor is a silky, sugary sweet meld of dark chocolate, whiskey and slightly warming on the finish. Really good, but I think I like the original version better.

arminjewell (6101) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, danish style, big thanks to Kyle for cracking this gem. Thick black pour with thin to no head, aroma brought notes of big dark chocolate, big coffee, hints of slight oak, vanilla, slight maple syrup notes into a bit of molasses. Taste is a mix of big dark cocoa, roast, dark molasses into some maple, roast, slight oak into a bit of earth, lots of espresso bean, nice earth, finishing slightly dry, bitter, nice and sweet. Very tasty, but I prefer mornin delight.

12oz bottle shared during Christmas Eve with friends into Utopias glass.

Pours black, mocha head, thin ring, wisps on top. Nose is rich milk chocolate, coffee, burnt sugars, some bakers chocolate. Flavor is maple syrup, chocolate brownies, light oak, smooth alcohol, caramel, and coffee. Full body, rich, light carbonation, sweet & creamy finish.

This is one of those beers that came along in 2013, was super-hyped, and delivered. I easily finished half of the bottle and shared the rest and was still left wanting more. Very rich & decadent but very smooth and easy to drink for such a huge beer.

Ataraxia (354) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Opaque black pour, almost no lacing. Aroma is more subdued compared to Mornin’ Delight. mildly sweet, vanilla, bourbon-soaked oak, maple syrup, espresso, dark chocolate, toasted marshmallow, sticky caramel, and pancake batter. Sweeter in taste with greater emphasis on the maple syrup, caramel, and pancake batter. Extremely slick, just coats the inside of your mouth. Smooth, creamy, and full-bodied without being overly heavy. As with Mornin’ Delight, the slight ’twang’ in the finish prevents it from a perfect score. Such an amazing blend of aromas and tastes.

MadIndian (2350) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2013
I definitely though this would not be as good as the hype, however, a tremendous job. Great blend of chocolate, roast, coffee, vanilla, wood, maple and toffee. The whiskey comes through on the finish, but not overbearing. Well done.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2014 drinkin side by side to mornin delight . 274/300 pours deep black, dark brown head. smell has walnuts, but less than mornin’ . also sweetness, bourbon-ish taste has got SO damn much ! its super thick ( i LOVE that ) with the perfect carbonation . its superintence, sweet, chocolate, coffee, faded walnuts? not realy getting the ’ pancake syrup ’ i see in other rates, wich is a good thing ( i started to fear i might not like this beer ! ) but I DAMN do love it! the onley reason that i dont rate this 5/5 , is i even like my previously 5/5 beers even more . damn near perfection . one hell of an awsome looking bottle, too ! Rerate : tasting again with dennoman . Giving it a straight 5/5 now , since every aspect of it is just perfect .

BVery (5991) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 25, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Sampled at Darkness Day 2013. Super dark pour. Rich licorice and roasted malt nose and taste. Very nice but overhyped. Really good though. I’d like to re-try this in a better setting.
