16 oz can. Pours black with a tan head. Tart chocolatey, molasses aroma. Flavor has that tart leading edge, cocoa and raisin. It’s pretty tasty, though pushing up the tartness would make it really interesting. But nothing to complain about here! Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Draft at crunchy's in east Lansing. Near black with a dark head. Incredibly smooth and rich. Slightly malt and tart cherries. DiarmaidBHK (5916) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Draft at brewpub. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Big roasted malt notes on the nose. Huge dark fruits and malt on the tongue. Thus feels like the undertaker turned up to 11 which is how it should be. I gotta say it’s nearly 10 and hides it’s booze really well. Nice! BeerBunker (966) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pours dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma is of raisins, chocolate, and toasty malt. Taste is of raisin, chocolate, and toasty malt. All the flavors are very muted. There is a very distinct alcohol bite. As it warms up, more of a cherry flavor comes out. Overall, I was very disappointed. milewide (2315) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 22, 2014
New release on 11/22/14. An evening in a can because everything is MAX!
9.8% ABV in Pounder will give anyone a buzz! Huge body, and flavor is intense. Clear but black color. Flavor is malt, Belgium yeast...and TART!

Shared 16 oz. can poured to snifters, displaying a black/brown color with some ruby highlighting at the base, bubbly, brownish tan head foam, and spotty lacing. The nose was roasted, mocha notes, dark fruit, molasses, woody/tannic astringency, with a bit of freezer burn scent at the back end. Medium bodied, with low carbonation, the taste was similar, less the crystals, included some vinous character, somewhat masked but noticeable alcohol, and was tart & dry. Decent. crossovert (13909) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Delicious brew. Tangy and sour yeast. Deeeep breast and cocoa malt notes. Easy drinkjn. Sammy (12762) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2014
Outstanding beer. Somewhat imperial stout with cherry, a little farmhouse in the finish. Very drinkable and tasty.Jet black.
I cannot remember how I got this one, thanks! esjaygee (3906) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 25, 2013
