Bottle at FoCo Stout Tasting 2013, courtesy of Dave. Thanks man! Pour is pitch black with a small brown head and decent lacing. Big toffee, caramel, bourbon, cocoa, coffee, raisins, figs, and cinnamon in the aroma. Taste is rich chocolate, light spice, toffee, caramel, raisins, bread, earthy, vanilla, and leathery with a light bite on the backend. Slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Really nice stuff.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Real treat for the night. Aroma is licorice, dates, figs, dark chocolate and rum sugar. Pours black and viscus with no head or carbonation whatsoever. Taste is dark and sweet with prunes, licorice, dark chocolate, cherries, oak, sweet rum, and dates. The roast darkness of this really shines and the rum flavors are very subtle. This is a dangerously easy beer to knock down. Was super grateful to try this.

Bottle from bytemesis, big thank you. Very dark, no foam. Boozy aroma, chocolate and dark fruit (raisins), almond. Similar flavor, booze, almond, raisins. Fair attempt, just too strong alcohol notes.

jbeatty (1245) - New York, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Review from backlog, 06/23/2011. Pours pitch black, with a dark tan head that quickly fades. Aroma is rich chocolate brownie, not overly sweet, with spices, mostly cinnamon, mildly sweet grapes, rum raisin and brown sugar. Taste is initially sweet, dark fruits, prunes and currants, slightly smoky, ends with gentle roast and mild dark chocolate, coffee finish. Body is rich and creamy, flavors blending nicely. Really enjoyed this one- the rum barrel treatment and raisins bring a nice richness, a great treat.

75cl bottle, courtesy of ibrew2or3. Split with my brother. Noire fonce - col moka, huileux sur le verre. Arme est malt pais, chocolat, note de raison sucre rsiduel, mlasses avec ce bouquet rtro nasal de barrique et rhum. Palais reste ici trs pais, malt couvre le tout entre note grille, chocolat et pas mal dalcool, voire bcp trop. Pointe de fum, note pice de cannelle, fruit noir complexe avec cet ajout de raisin. Le tout colle aux lvres avec le rhum qui se fait prsent mais sans pour cela dominer le tout. Au final, mme deux la bire est dure terminer, cest juste de trop et on finit par tre cur.
