750 ml. corked. Nose reminds of working with Oak. BIG. Roasty, Fluffy on the palate. Belgian influence. Chocolatey. Absolutely incredible. An evening with Tiny leaves me wanting more. Rarely after a 750ml do I want more. Great value, at $10 better than many $20 "Big Beers"

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 12, 2011
Nearly black, brown head. Roasted malt, ash, molasses, tobacco and rich yeasty esthers in the nose. Flavor is loaded with chocolate, coffee, ash, tobacco, molasses, yeast, and fruit. Nice.

Poured midnight black with a thick, creamy, brown head. Aromas of roasted malts, dark chocolate, and espresso. Sweet malt flavor with some lingering bitterness. A little oaky flavor can be detected. Creamy and slick mouthfeel. Very tasty!

Pours a black color with a tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts, dark fruits, chocolate, and some molasses. Nice light mouth feel with roasted malts, chocolate, and some belgian yeast. Decent warming on the finish.

mrmekon (100) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Pitch black, huge brown head with excellent persistence. Aroma of roast malt, very chocolatey, and raspberry. Extremely smooth roast malt flavor, sweet up front and bitter in back, intense chocolate the whole way, and woody oak character on the finish. Not much linger. Very full body, but not sticky, and moderate carbonation. Fantastic.

douglas88 (7792) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 2, 2011
750 ml bottle shared by footbalm. Pours a totally black color with a medium brown head. A strong Belgian Ale nose; spicy and sweet malts, some light roast. The flavor is similar; dominated by spicy Belgian notes, ginger and rye, light chocolate and roast. Interesting.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - DEC 26, 2010
750 mL bottle. Pours extreme black with a tall brown head. The aroma is quite vinous, almost like a merlot, backed up with strong chocolate, roast, earth, rainforest, and a little bit of prune and vanilla. The flavor is chocolate, slight coffee, some vanilla, some pumperknickel, and a little bit of earthy hops. It gets a bit yeasty toward the finish, adding to the bready illusion. This is some pretty tasty stuff.

bth122 (1392) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2010
Poured a very dark brown color. Med to full head. Aroma of roast malts and some coffee. Taste is well blend of lite sweetness, and lite to med bitter. Palate is med to full bodied. Creamy texture. Thicker texture. Intersting twist on imp stout. Like the belgium flare added to this. The belgium yeast strain taste comes through. Alcohol comes through also. Good stuff. Def a sipper.

russwbeck (117) - Tyrone, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2010
Pours a complete dark black with a small brown head. No retention and minimal lacing. Alcohol is definitely coming through on the smell along with typical stout hints. Deep malts and chocolate. This tastes like what I would imagine a Quad mixed with an Imperial Stout would taste like, plus a bunch of alcohol. Except I would have thought it would taste better. Full bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Warming alcohol feeling as you drink. Not all that great. The alcohol was a little too powerful for me

FROTHINGSLOSH (5965) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2014 Sampled from a 750 ml corked brown bottle this beer poured thick, black and oily with a medium sized dark brown head that produced a bit of lacing. The aroma was strong cherry, molasses, licorice, raisin, rum, cocoa and wood. The flavor was very strong sweet cocoa with moderate molasses, cherry, rum, raisin, vanilla and toasty malts. The finish was long with cocoa, vanilla and cherry lingering. The body was thick, full and smooth. The alcohol was fairly well hidden at first but became more prominent as the beer warmed. Incredible.
