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!

16oz can with commonmac and samalito. Black with tan head. Strong boozy nose. Chocolate, peat, some smokiness. Sweet and syrupy. Like a very rich chocolate dessert covered in bourbon. Unique finishing taste, maybe licorice. Big beer with big taste.

16oz can purchased at Liquor Barrel and consumed with commonshawn and samalito. Thick, syrupy consistency and a pitch black color. Tan head. This one is like a dessert poured into a glass. Aroma is peaty, bourbony, dark fruits and full of warning signs that you might want to sip on this one rather than drinking expeditiously. Taste brings in strong elements of chocolate with some espresso characteristics. The high ABV is felt almost instantly. The peat doesnt stick around too much but the end is dark fruits, sweetness, and roasted coffee beans. Its reminiscent of a liquid fudge dessert. Overall its pretty delicious...you just need to pace yourself.

alteregoo (1297) - Kalisz, POLAND - MAR 10, 2017
Piana ciemna, drobniutka, zbita i trwała, ładnie oblepia szkło. Barwa czarna jak smoła. Aromat wyrazisty, słodki, czekoladowy, pralinowy, karmelowy, jakieś nutki tiramisu, ciemnych owocw, cukierkw kukułka. W smaku słodkie, intensywnie czekoladowe, poza wszystkim tym co w zapachu pojawia się mocna kawa espresso, trufle, lekko kwaskowe jagody i jeżyny. Jest oczywiście przyjemne ciało, w kontrze średnia, palona goryczka, jakieś rumowe, popiołowe i pikantne posmaki. Wysycenie niskie do średniego, dość pełne, dość treściwe w odbiorze.
RIS z grnej płki bez dwch zdań, bije na głowę niejednego przeciętnego przedstawiciela stylu w wersji barrel age nie wspominając o większości polskich wypustw... Dla mnie poziom Imperial Biscotti Break wymieszanego z Lil B.

.65l bottle from Boxbeer. Pours pitch black with high brown head. Aroma is roasted malts coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, alcohol notes, dark fruits, some red wine notes(?), syrup and bread. Flavor is mostly same. Swell! Dry palate, burned.
