COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all it must taste rare!

pkomar (294) - Poznan, POLAND - NOV 7, 2016
Aroma full of chocolate and coffee with hints of raisins and muscovado lingering in the background. Heavy body, very dense with tastes of chocolate and roasted notes playing main men. Great one.

ACHops (1427) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 5, 2016
16 oz bottle, served in a tulip glass. Pours thick inky black with a slight reddish tint, thin dark mocha head. Aroma is heavy roasty charred malt, dark chocolate, molasses, thick sludgy coffee. Taste is thick fudgy malt, French roast coffee, creamy milk chocolate. Outstanding imperial stout, just not exceptional in any respects. $4 for a tall can does make this a winner.

tricksta_p (3743) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is roasted malt, pretty strong liquorice, some booze, caramel, piny hops, dark fruits, chocolate cake. Flavour is rather sweet and slightly bitter. Body is full. Very strong and big. Enjoyable, but not top tier for me because of the booze and heavy liquorice.

Booga (93) - Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2016
Nice beer but not sure what makes it a 100. Dark bitter burnt roast taste. Not much in the nose. Some bready flavors in the middle. Nice thick body. Pours one finger thick head. Lots of small bubble carbonation. Nice but not out of this world.

On tap was smooth and rich, lots of dark chocolate and black licorice and the high abv is hidden very well beautiful stout.
