UPDATED: JAN 20, 2018 330ml bottle from Elizabeth Station. Pours an oily almost black with a dark brown black-ish head. Aroma is roasted malt, smoky with some ink notes. Taste is moderately sweet with high roasted malt, some smoky and black chocolate notes. Good one. Good, it is coming in the small bottle since it would be very hard to do a bomber of this.

Aroma is chocolate, fudge , caramel and fig. Taste is a rich and deep mouth-feel with a slight bitterness on finish. Very complex but great slow sipper. Cybercat (6426) - Georgia, USA - DEC 26, 2017
Pours oily sable just a flea's eyebrow above jet with a thick chocolate head. Aroma exudes roast, smoky malt plus semi-sweet chocolate, quality coffee, molasses, and a hint of licorice. Taste manages to take even these fantastic tones up another notch and tosses in a boozy touch so it's almost more barleywine than stout. Mouthfeel presents heavy, viscous body and peppy fizz. Heavenly! k0mpsa (3233) - Tuusula, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2017

Bottle from Three Cellars in the Falls. Black pour with a lovely brown head. Aroma has thick sweet and roasted malts, light chocolate, molasses, a bit of rubbing alcohol, and oak. Taste is thick sweet malts, chocolate, molasses, some smoky malt, big bitter espresso, some dark fruit, and light oak. Complex, strong & quite dry. Full bodied, the blend is good, with low carbonation and a solid alcohol presence. Finishes actually fairly bitter despite all the sweet components. Big and complex, fairly tasty. 15 cgarvieuk (26605) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 24, 2017

11.2oz bottle. Pours nearly black with a beige head. Aroma is dark chocolate, molasses, vanilla. Flavor has lots of dark chocolate, licorice, molasses. I don’t believe this was barrel aged, but there’s a wood-like bitterness in the finish. LilBeerDoctor (4277) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2017
