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!

This stuff was expensive ($15 for 22oz.) and carries a 100 rating. I probably shouldnt factor those things in, but I cant help it. This beer has a lot to live up to. The aroma is outstanding. Smells complex and well crafted, aroma is on par with the best imperial stouts I have ever had. Smells of good espresso, leather, alcohol, some dark chocolate and fig. Appearance is halfway in between brown and black, nice looking dark tan head. Had more foam than I thought it would. Tastes great up front with more dark chocolate/fudge than in the smell and espresso. Reminds me of an expensive truffle. In fact, thats what you should eat with this brew. If Im paying this much for beer, I expect a great palate, and this one is spot on. Thick and velvety with a slightly bitter and boozy aftertaste that is not overwhelming. Is this better than BCS? I cant believe Im even considering that, but it may be. I would love to try them side by side. Worth the price. I cant believe Im saying that either.

Bottle picked up in Rochester. Pours dark brown with a light beige head. Nose is fudge, malt, slight espresso. Flavor is dark fruit, chocolate/fudge, malt, sweet and boozy. Finishes dry. Reminds me some of Choklat, but with more complexity. Very good.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Kevin. Looks like used motor oil; BLACK & thick as hell, only a small, tan ring emerges on the pour. A swirl of the glass brings up a frothy, blackened tan head. Aroma is full of dense, rich fudge, toasted peanut brittle, residual brown sugar, light mallow cream, & decadent layers of chocolate-y type desserts. Smells like a beast. Tastes like one, too. Bitter dark chocolate, fat fudge, hint of espresso, caramelized sugar & residual sweetness, toasted peanuts, & just a kiss of anise in the finish. A thick beer, a huge beer. Powerful body, thick as fuck with a melted milkshake kind of presence. Crazy good imperial stout, lovely stuff all around.

bomber pour-- thick black beer, tan foam-- milk chocolate at first taste with coffee and more complex flavors on the finish, just the right amount of alcohol and bitterness to balance the sweetness... tasted against the doughnut-- tough call to pick the winner--- awesome beer-- so smooth!

SpongeRuiner (1114) - Michigan, USA - APR 18, 2014
This beer pours dark dark with a dark dark awesome looking creamy head. A thick layer that just stays on top. An absolutely delicious looking beer. A huge chocolate taste. All around a chocolate brew. A very smooth milk chocolate flavor bases this thing out. What really makes it and pulls it all together is the alcohol feel at the end. Really balances out the whole beer. Very good stuff.

What a beer. Had a bottle at Hudson street tap house in Bmore. Pour is dark like black with a medium tan to dark tan head. Aroma is robust and fantastic dark chocolate, coffee and rich sugary dessert. A big beer that stays on your palate forever. Every thing you smell you taste what a treat.

Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2014
Tap at Backcountry. Pours very dark brown with light brown head, settles quickly with minimal to no lacing. Aroma is toasted and roasted malt, chocolate, mildly sweet and fruity booziness. Flavor is toffee, caramel, fairly sweet up front, fading quickly to a roasted, toasted malt, and mildly smoky finish. Finish is mildly fruity, banana as it warms. Not as much going on as Bible Belt Jesus or Prairie Bomb, a fairly standard imperial stout. Lowest in alcohol of the three, yet manages to be booziest. Alcohol seems a bit higher than the flavor and body can support. Soft carbonation, medium body, fairly smooth texture.
