Wow this thing is all over the place but in a very good way. Pours a thick black with a deep tan head. Aroma is full of roasted malts and Belgian candied sugar. Sweet and roasty. Taste bubbles up on your tongue and leads off with a Belgian quad and mid way through shifts with a hint of licorice and into an imperial stout with just a hint of bourbon oak on the finish. Great great stuff.

Bottle from July 2011. Pours thick and black with a caramel brown head. Big chocolate aromas - brownies with chocolate syrup. Also toffee, wood, burnt toast, and slight raisin and dried fig. Taste is roasty, coffee and dark chocolate, wood, toffee, hints of vanilla and cola. Moderate bitterness. Full and smooth palate. A bit of alcohol burn but it’s mostly felt, not tasted, after sitting in the bottle for 2.5 years. A nice big beer to enjoy slowly.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
my favorite style. purch in CO;drank in TX - they now sell in TX!! looks like bottle date is 1/12. High scores b/c it is all I love about this style even if there are a few opportunities. black pour of course; aroma of all things good - wood, alcohol, choc, roast. Taste is a little hot - scary if 2 years didn’t tone it down and at times (warmer) it overpowers the other flavors. Still damn good though with flavors like aromas. will have again for sure

This is jet fuel plain and simple. This beer is dark with little licorice. 13.2% alcohol is enough to slay you.
