Barley, wheat, rye and oats provide the foundation for this big stout. Layers of complex flavors slowly emerge from the glass: espresso, roasted fig, creme brulee. Belgian yeast provides a plum-like fruitiness, noble German hops reveal spicy, herbal notes, while the rich, velvety mouthfeel mellows to a dry, smoky finish. Such a robust beer stands well by itself, but also makes a wonderful end-note to any rich, indulgent meal. Discover the secret of combining this roasty ale to sweets, by pairing with dark chocolate or caramel, or even by pouring it over ice cream.

Roast, burnt smell with hint of sweet coffee. Alcohol taste was a bit too prominent and killed a lot of the taste, but did have a decent dark chocolate/coffee character. Overall not bad, but wouldn't get it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz into Boulevard tulip A- Jet black, huge spongy dark brown head with staying power. S- A bit of roasted/smoked malt, but lacking in aroma overall. T- Roasted malt, dark fruits, a little bitter and a tiny bit sour finish, alcohol is well masked. M- Low carbonation, thin for this ABV, very drinkable. O- Nice stout, but at this price point I would not buy this again. Serving type: bottle

budznsudz (582) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Pours a gorgeous black with a thick brown head and thick lacing. Smells like fudge, coffee grounds and anise. Tastes of dark chocolate, cream, coffee, and raisins. Its about eight months beyond its best by date but is still rather nice and complex.

msalm (59) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Strong fig, brown sugar, and alcohol in the nose. A deep brown with a tan head. Initial sweetness disappears and leaves a pleasant bitterness.Great mouthfeel--lingers as new flavors emerge and coats the tongue and gums with a prickly dark chocolate. Overall, a very nice stout Id be happy sharing with family and friends.

ESBob (379) - Indiana, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark chocolate black with nice brownish head. Aroma is chocolate, toffee and slight smoke. Taste is very much the same, some complexity with the mixing of flavors, toffee and chocolate stand out with a slight smoke finish. Only the slightest alcohol tow.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Poured into a snifter. 4.5 A: Black color. First pour gave me a huge frothy light brown head. A couple pours later I got my glass full. Retention is very good and plenty of lacing is left. 3.5 S: Deep roastiness with tons of molasses. A little boozy with some astringency. Caramel with chocolate undertones. 3.0 T: Again a deep roastiness with molasses and caramel. About as boozy as the nose suggests and also as astringent. Its not bad, but its not any better than average. 3.0 M: Medium to heavier medium body. Still overcarbonated despite much swirling. Lightly creamy, but could be moreso. 3.0 D: Its not bad, but the roasty astringency gets old fast. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-01-2012 20:00:25

35,5 cl bottle @ hotel room, Seattle BBE 16.04.2014
Aroma is malty and somewhat sweet with some roasted notes and English hops. Flavour has roasted malt, some dark chocolate. licorice and hints of berries. Too sticky and sweet, but good anyway.
