Bottled & Keg;
A brooding, heavyweight stout, crammed with intense, deep-roast specialty malts. A recipe 8 months in the making with multiple edits before we were happy to proceed, in the end it was a delight to brew.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2017 Umami stout aroma. Starts off with a subtle caramel molasses malt sweetness and finishes with a prominent burnt tar bitterness. Aftertaste really sits on the palate! Rich creamy oily mouthfeel! Gentle carbonation.

Bottle at my place thanks to Matt I think. Todd? Anyway, thanks. Pours a jet black hue with a small beige head. A big licorice and roast nose. Huge dark malts, licorice, some light ash, metallic roasted notes, a bit of char. Very smooth. Awesome beer. Rating number 9000! Quite a run it has been.

Bottle enjoyed at home
Pours black like used engine oil, thick creamy dense dark brown head. Smellof cocoa, dark malts, roast, hints of coffee. Heavy sweet, alot of dark delicious malts, chocolate, dark fruits, roast, toast, complex and inviting. Medium bitter, chocolate tail. Very nice!

Brew_Cat (139) - Athens, GREECE - MAY 22, 2017
Cellared bottle shared at home. Pours opaque black with small diminishing beige head. Medium to full body, oily mouthfeel, light carbonation, dry bitter-sweet finish with intense coffee aftertaste. Incredible aromas of roasted malts, dark chocolate, espresso coffee beans, hints of vanilla beans. Similar tastes on the tongue along with balancing citrus hops, molasses, plums, dried fruits. When time passes by, it gets better and better revealing its complexity. Mouthwatering, fully enjoyable!

NikkTwist (3463) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2017
UPDATED: APR 18, 2017 Draft at Bainbridge. Black pour with a slim amount of khaki foam. Very dark roasted malts. Bakers chocolate. Turkish coffee. Liquorice. Cocoa nibs. Molasses. Fainter notes of charcoal and vinyl. Silky body. Big and tasty. Solid - but not quite approaching the best Imperials.

Very intense, vary malty. Quite dry. Fairly low carbonation. Decent hoppyness. Tough going.

lbianchi66 (457) - FRANCE - MAR 14, 2017
Robe noire mousse beige qui tient peu. Arômes cafés et fumés puissants. Goût café fumé chocolat fruits noirs Amertume marquée relevant le chocolat en fin de bouche. Texture sirupeuse. Bonne bière.

3.5
JamesMcGowan (11) - KINGSTON UPON THAMES, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2017
Dark pour, with very little head. Chocolate and coffee aroma. Reasonably thick mouthfeel. Flavours of milk chocolate, espresso, cocoa, dark fruits, hazelnut, brandy, tobacco and liquorice. Bitter aftertaste.
