4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Received in trade from MeadMe, thanks for the opportunity. Glugs out of the bottle a thick black color with a smallish tan head that shows some staying power. Smells of dark caramel, licorice, burnt sugar, chocolate, with hints of smoke and alcohol. Taste is Thick and burnt with lots of licorice, chocolate, and caramel. Long lingering earthy ethanol burnt sweetness. Thick body with a light level of carbonation and chewy vinous burnt mouthfeel. This is a big thick sweet monster of a beer and I enjoyed it till the end.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer sure has grown up since I last had it (early 2011).
Pours black with a solid sheet of tan foam. Smell is pretty fucking acceptable. Dark molasses, prune, brown sugar, oats, chocolate, globs of caramel and nougat. When I dome this beer I know I’m in trouble - it’s really tasty. I was scared the belgian yeast would murder the fucking hips out of the foundation, but this beer really just plays along with just a hint of vinous character, but then the rest is sweetened, dark, oral face sex. Medium on full bodied with low carb and a dry finish. I really enjoyed this one. Time did a good thing here.
Original review: 3/3.5/3.5/3.5/4
Thanks to yourefragile for this extra. Cheers!
A: Pours a dark coffee brown with only a sheet of mocha foam which dissipates very quickly. Surface has several whirls of foam left. No lacing to speak of.
S: graham, nougat, malts, black cherries, cola, caramel, hint of molasses. Fine whisps of cocoa. Slight alcohol scent at the back. Overall quite pleasant. Based on smell alone, could use another year in the cellar.
T: Roasty plums, figs, coffee, licorice, black malts. nearly port-like profile. Again, some grahams, sweet molasses. Sweet and alcoholic. Black cherries in here once again too (particularly on the finish).
M: Viscous, low carbonation. Slicks my tongue and makes the roof of the mouth a bit slippery as well.
D: The beer is very nice, wouldn’t advise drinking more than one in a sitting. Think the beer could use another year in the cellar before drinking.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Black, thin brownish frothy head, sparce lacing.
Rich roasted malt nose, strong pale fruit, very strong coffee and
assertive soy.   Given the few years I sat on this, it certainly has
mellowed out, but it has also a fairly assertive roasted malt character.
Lots of chocolate, roasted malts, lactose, and prune like flavors
up front.   Hops on the soft side, its warming and certainly gives
off some heat as it goes down.   Seems like this could have been a
bruiser a few years ago.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.
Strong graham cracker, prune, and bittersweet chocolate notes
remain.   Glad I waited on this one as its seems like a hot Imperial
Stout that has smoothed out, a lot.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a motor oil black color with a small tan head that disapates quickly. The aroma is deep and dark, filled with bittersweet chocolate, dark fruits, molasses, and hints of licorice spice and dark rum. The taste is of roasted malts, dried fruits, bitter chocolate, yeast and alcohol. The finish has some spice, with lots of boozy flavor. Medium bodied with fairly low carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by matt9875. Thanks bro!
A: This unique stout appears pitch black with a half inch of beige head that fades to nothing after a few moments, leaving only the faintest trace of lacing.
S: Licorice, roasted malt, alcohol, yeast, dark chocolates.
T: This is a really good beer, albeit impressively strong. The flavors are bold and robust, with a prominent liquor and molasses flavor that mingles well with the Belgian yeast aspect.
M: Smooth and medium bodied. Alcohol presence is there, but has been tamed with time.
D: This brew has greatly smoothed out with a little age on it, making it considerably more drinkable than when I had it fresh.
