jbruner (7220) - Davis, California, USA - JUN 12, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2019 2010 bottle, that held up much better than anyone could have ever expected. Pours a deep brownish black with bubbly tan ring of head that leaves light lace. Aroma of dark roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee, a hint of molasses, and the slightest umami soy sauce oxidation underneath. Taste is more of the dark chocolate and roast, a light toffee sweetness, boozy warmth, and a touch of earthy bitter. This behemoth was amazing fresh, I can tell, would love to try it that way.

TimE (7909) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 11, 2018
Pitch black color. Massive molasses, dark chocolate, tons of brown sugar, dark cherries, marshmallows with a bit of port. Wow. Amazing depth. Sticky sweet mouth with tons of dark chocolate, port, brown sugar in the mouth. Very full body. The mouth isn’t as deep as the nose but the abv is so well hidden. Excellent

Draft at brewery. Pours black with a khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Big chocolate and pine on the nose and Tongue. Pretty hop forward for an impy stout but it’s Surly so it mostly works. Hides it’s booze very well.
