3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark cola looking beer with a brown head. Aromas of Belgian candy sugars and roasted coffee. Tastes of dark chocolate/coffee, dark licorice, some plum, and candy sugars. A bit of toffee with bourbon sweetness too. Very boozy. Sweet finish. Dark chocolaty notes linger on the tongue and a slight alcohol burn lingers in the throat. Quite good, but just a tad bit too cloyingly sweet for me.

Pours black w/ a thin mocha head & a tiny bit of lacing. The aroma aroma is toffee, roasted notes, & booze. The flavor is toffee & finishes primarily boozy. It’s tasty & powerful but more of a sipper. Overall a good beer!

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured black into the snifter, small tan head no much retention or lacing. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, some coffee and some booze. Taste of dark fruit, coffee some chocolate mixed with roasted malts, alcohol is blended in quite well. Complex and quite interesting. Certainly very enjoyable.

Pours an opaque, very dark brown with a gray-taupe head. Banana chips and nearly burnt malt aromas. Thick and chewy. The flavors mimic the nose except that some chocolate gets expressed.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle served in a snifter. Pretty much pitch black with nice (if somewhat shortlived) dark tan head. Aroma is sweet indulgent candy sugar and Christmas cake. Taste is molasses, toffee, licorice, caramel and luxurious fruit cake. Very little bitterness present and very much in the same vein as Black Albert (the label states "Belgian Style") with the butterscotch richness and high viscosity. A real dessert of a beer - dismiss any reviews suggesting the bitterness is too high with this one; they are taking nonsense.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Tap @ Hollywood. Big & black. Mild sterile sweet volatile impy stout aroma. No co2, inductively mouth coating. Flavors are nothing but on style terrible impy stout. What else can be said? A big nasty Nellie of a brew that is high alky and burns a little on the way down. DUDE! Way over the top and down the sides. What a silly name for its big impact on the palate. DIZZY!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle into snifter glass, opaque deepest dark brown (okay it’s black) color with thin dark tan head. Aroma notes of heavy roasted malt, anise, booze, cocoa, dark fruits and red wine. Taste adds mocha, berries, smoke, nuttiness, molasses and earthy spiciness. Heavy body, low carbonation, creamy, soft, rich with dark fruity, boozy and roasty finish. It’s boozy, fruity and roasty. Maybe some years will tame the wilder notes.
