Black pour with a frothy tan head. Beautiful aroma of anise liqueur, mocha, candied plum, earthy hops, and dark chocolate. Hard to describe the flavor any better than Avery did in the description, but it follows the aroma well with milk chocolate upfornt, anise and some spicy/perfume like hops mid-palate, giving way to candied dark fruit and slight mint pepper and basil. Full bodied and slightly hot. Finishes like a cream liqueur with a dash of aged whiskey.
Tiny pour from a bottle at a tasting. Consumed on 9-23-17. 2011 edition. Pours a very dark amber to dark brown. Small amount of beige head. Sweet, port wine aroma. This beer seems to hold up well to its six years of aging. Quite nice taste. Chocolate milk to milk chocolate flavor. Medium body, light for the style. 22.214.171.124.14=>3.5 alteregoo (1671) - Kalisz, POLAND - OCT 10, 2017
Piana średnio obfita, po chwili opada do chmurki. Barwa ciemno brązowa, prawie czarna. W zapachu wiśnie w czekoladzie, kawa, rodzynki w rumie, masło... W smaku miodowo słodkie, głównie mleczna czekolada, śliwki, jakieś przyprawy i ajerkoniak. Goryczka niska, ziołowo alkoholowa. Niskie wysycenie, oleiste i mdłe w odbiorze.

Ewidentnie jest tu wyczuwalny jakiś obcy, przeszkadzający posmak, poza tym diacetyl i nie do końca ułożony alkohol. Ogólnie spory zawód.
on tap at Crafty's in Northeast Philly - super dark. Sweet and boozy chocolatey flavor. Slightly sweet aroma. nihtila (3836) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 30, 2017

Pours virtually black from the bottle. The foamy tan slowly fades. Aroma is chocolate, plum, port wine, nail polish. Taste is bittersweet, lots of licorice, cough drop, chocolate. Body is heavy, carbonation is mild. Pretty good. (SWI++) JohananaV2 (278) - Hurst, Texas, USA - JUL 16, 2017

Malty smooth finish that excites the palate. Incredibly smooth finish for a beer with the ABV that this beer has. Must try!
