4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2015 22 oz bottle received in trade from Kale. Allowed to warm to an initial temperature of about 50, then served in a Belgian snifter.
The opaque black liquid looks rich and thick, which is not misleading. The aroma is complex and seemingly variable. It carries notes of well baked cookies, coffee, bourbon, faint wood, dark bread, and dark fruits. These all reappear in the flavor which, while excellent, is not quite as appealing as the aroma.
Very full bodied and smooth, with light carbonation and well hidden alcohol.

Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours Zhukov-black with a small, creamy, beige head. Decent retention. The roasty aroma features a lavish and bold intermingling of charcoal, fudge, tobacco and bourbon. Full-bodied and silky with soft carbonation. The flavor is a roasty-sweet mélange of chocolate crème, fudge, charcoal, pouch tobacco and molasses. Roasted, singed brownie finish with a light splash of tawny port. I wonder if this is the base beer for Mexican Cake. Big-time thanks to ctipping for popping the top on this world-class brew!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Opaque black/brown color with some cola colored foam lacing. Lots going on in the nose. A hint of cocoa, alcohol, roastiness, a slight soy sauce like note, licorice, dark aged fruit (fig, dates). Just as complex in flavor. Pretty much every thing in the nose presents in the flavor. Despite so many things going on, the beer is well balanced. The body is full and viscous but not overly heavy or coating.
