Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Pours a pitch black with a light brown head. Sweet roasted malt and vanilla in the nose. Very, very solid body - hard roasted malts and vanilla with a touch of wood. Quite some alcohol in the finish. No real bitterness. Imperial Porter territory. 120910

bluejacket74 (1316) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2010
750 ml corked and caged bottle, bottled on 3/31/2010. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch frothy tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is roasted and burnt/charred malt, oak, chocolate, coffee, vanilla and a bit of licorice and booze. Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma, however I think the bitter roasty flavors are stronger than the sweet ones. Thereís also a good lingering bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, itís creamy and slick with low/moderate carbonation. Drinkability is good, considering the strength of this brew. Itís definitely a sipper, but still enjoyable. I think itís a good brew, Iíll have to pick up another bottle if I come across this again.

A: The pour lives up to the name and is indeed black in color with a nice tan head. S: Quite a pleasant nose with plenty of chocolate, vanilla, and oak along with a light roasted character. Unfortunately, some soy sauce notes, too. T: A very nice sweet milk chocolate and vanilla flavor is what this beer is all about. Subtle oak and roast character, along with a touch of alcohol warmth. No soy sauce, thankfully. M: The body is medium with a smooth, low level of carbonation. D: Quite a nice beer, actually. I was not expecting too much from this, but a very nice flavor and mouthfeel.
