For such a big beer this one is remarkably drinkable. Boozy but not over the top. Smooth and drinkable. Awesome. hopdog (12369) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Bottle. Batch - Feb 2015. Poured a black color with a tan head. Roast, dark fruits, woody, coffee, bourbon, vanilla, and molasses. Warming alcohol - drank this after shoveling out from the 10" snow storm that just hit us, so this did hit the spot. Camons (12315) - Hasselager, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2012

Big rich stout, with full corn flavour. They call it bourbon. Black, thick. Tasty, to an extent. Worth a try. slowrunner77 (11917) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2014
"Wow - likely the best 15+% beer Iíve ever had or will have. Sweet from both the barreling and the abv, but not overly so. And not hot. Iím a fan of Mephistopheles, but this stout is in a whole nother class. Ridiculously good."

12 oz bottle. Bottled Jun/2013. From a trade with jcnielsen. Thanks a lot Justin! Enjoyed at the ISKTR 2014.
Black colour with no head.
The aroma is vinous with roasted malt, mild vinegar and ashy dryness.

Bottle thanks to Aaron! Pours an oily black with a very dark brown head that dissipates nearly completely. Aroma has a good amount of raisin with dark grains and dark chocolate backed by a decent bourbon note. Flavor has raisin and dark chocolate up front with a growing bourbon note that remains underlying. hopscotch (11049) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Bottle... Pours pitch black with a small, creamy, beige head. The aroma is a bold, rich swirl of fudge, pouch tobacco and blackstrap molasses accompanied by an unobtrusive bourbon component. Full-bodied and silky with tingly carbonation. The flavor presents boozy-hot bourbon, fudge and vanilla. Finishes sweet, bourbony and chocolaty. Considering this beer is 35 proof, Iíd say itís quite palatable. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz! daknole (11044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 27, 2012
Super dark brown hand, medium brown head. Smells like a chocolate covered bourbon soaked piece of fudge. Sweet flavor, loads of fudge, bourbon, vanilla. Quite decadent. Itís evident that thereís big alcohol, but I wouldnít have guessed nearly 18%.
