Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, big coconut, vanilla, oak, and whiskey in there, hints of coffee, green espresso bean, hints of spice, slight smoke. Taste is a mix of dark chocolate, roast, hints of coffee, nice big oak, vanilla, slight coconut, into a smoky middle, slight peaty note with herbal notes, finishing fairly bitter, very creamy, bitter. Wow, very well done. cubs (10677) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 9, 2013

Deep brown-black body, medium to thin sized khaki, spotty lacing. Significant roast and coffee, some oaky and peaty whiskey, touches of chocolate, some light tobacco. Medium to full bodied, silky carbonation, lingering finish, well-masked alcohol. AcctError96987 (3723) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 12, 2013
The beer is near black with a thin beige cap. Upon first whiff, I can already tell this will be another great stout from Evil Twin. Distinctly European in style. Vanilla, chocolate, roast. light warming alcohol. Really easy to drink. Such a graceful 12% abv. Full bodied with moderately low carbonation. Fantastic. radagast83 (8200) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Shared from small 12oz bottle. Poured a motor-oil black color with a small off-white head. Aroma was some seriously roasted malts, coffee touch there. Flavor was really sweet sugary dried fruits, some oak and vanilla there. Bitter chocolate. Way too much booze noticeable for it to be enjoyable for me.

Draft at Torst in NYC. Black with lighter tan head. Dark raisons, deep fruit. Big tart alcohol, some tobacco. Plum and prune. Great. yngwie (17109) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle. It pours a dark brown to black body and a minimal sized light tan head. Roasted malts, coffee, molasses, alcohol, booze and a touch of chocolate and dark dried fruits. Quite complex flavor with the booze playing a leading role. Lots of molasses, coffee and chocolate blending in. Warming and full-bodied, with very soft carbonation. Lasting finish with lots of flavor. A damn pleasant and tasteful beer, well suited for sharing with a good friend. 130504 Geokkjer (7642) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2013
