3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured a very dark brown/black with an average sized light brown rocky head that was mostly diminishing and had fair lacing.The aroma started with a strong alcohol scent, then of burnt dark bread malts, a leathery yeast with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, molasses and dried friut (Plums I think). It tasted strong of alcohol and had a sweet-wine characteristic in the beginning then matured to a sweet-bitter flavor with hints of coffee and molasses with a touch of chocolate at the finish. Mouthfeel was medium to full in body and creamy yet oily in texture with a nice soft carbonation. Overall a nice stuout but a little to much of an alcohol tinge for me.
12 ounces bottle, Bottled in Nov 2016. Gift from Guillaume. Aroma: really strong alcohol, coffee, anis, chocolate, subtle roastiness. App: pitch black with minimal brown head leaving shy lacing. Taste and palate: full body, lots of chocolate and heavy alcohol burning finish. Overall: quite impressed about this 18% abv beer. Really didn't think it would actually taste like a stout. It never feels too sweet either. For sure the alcohol is quite present in the nose and on the palate but it's not unpleasant. This is not really something I would drink often but I wouldn't mind sharing this beer with 2 or 3 friends and drink it as a digestive. Well made but of course too much for one person. Great. ljthiessen (1438) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 25, 2017
Bottle. Very dark brown pour, small beige head. Aroma is boozy and sharp, chocolate and coffee notes. Taste is the same - slightly sweet up front with plenty of hot booziness, some chocolate, caramel and coffee notes. pictoman (1211) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2017
Poured from 12 fl oz bottle. Black with dissipating tan head. Roast malt with alcohol, mild chocolate and coffee, hint of soy and leather. Booziness doesn't show the full 18%, but it's still noticeable enough that it takes away from the flavour in a significant enough way to lower its rating.

on tap black pour thin brown head aroma and taste is sweet dark chocolate and vanilla light roasted malt and licorice finish oobawa (1733) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 13, 2017
Bottled on 11/16. Delicious massive stout, equal parts sweet and roasted and bitter and boozy, oil-thick and ridiculously drinkable for an 18% monster. Loads of bittersweet chocolate and mocha underlined by a formidable roasted barley backbone, mixing with a surprising Belgian fruitiness--figs, cherries, dates, etc.--and a underlying hop bitterness, piney and strong. Liquor warmth shows up on the fade, but not nearly as present as you'd expect. Big chocolate-java impy stout nose, and the pours pitch black and heavy as hell. Lovely, lovely stout.

Piwo czane nalewa sie bez mala iloscia lekko bezowej piany. W aromacie alkohol, czekolada i mdly marcepan za ktorym nie przepadam. W smaku jak slodki czekoladowy likier i kukulki. Alkohol jest bardzo intensywnie odczuwalny pomimo tego to piwo to klasa sama w sobie. 05barnold (46) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2017
From the tap at the brewery in DE. This beer is fantastic. Aroma of coffee. Flavor of coffee and vanilla. This beer was dangerously smooth and drinkable for the ABV rating. Great beer to end the tour with.

Bottle. Chocolate, roastiness, booze, wet wood in aroma. In taste also prunes and cocoa. Full bodied, softly carbonated, silky smooth but with harsh boozy finish. trapped (3599) - New York, TURKEY - JUL 8, 2017
Draught @ Top Hops. Inky black with small frothy off-white head, aroma of mocha, molasses, oak, and liquor, medium carbonation, sweetish woodsy mocha taste with alcohol undertones, smooth body, long mocha finish. Incredibly well covered alcohol content, so smooth and easy to drink. ffaoe (912) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - JUN 24, 2017
