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. Pours black with a moderate dark tan head. Aroma is caramel, earth, booze, coffee, chocolate, and roast. Taste is caramel, coffee, roast, booze, bittersweet chocolate, light earth, and light licorice. Bitter and alcoholic finish - a little earthy, too. Full body. Soft carbonation. Sticky, thick, creamy mouthfeel. The finish is the only real weak point.

puren (1260) - Gdańsk, POLAND - NOV 20, 2017
PREZENTACJA: bardzo ciemno brązowe, piana jest bardzo obfita, brązowa, szybko opada do trwałej warstwy, nie osiada na ściance;
AROMAT: sos sojowy, likier śliwkowy, wędzona śliwka, susz wigilijny;
ODCZUCIE: ciało średnie, ciężkie i oleiste, średnio nasycone, mocno zaklejające, alkohol rozgrzewa delikatnie przełyk;
SMAK: słodkie - rum, rodzynki, gorzka czekolada, karmel, wyraźna kakaowa goryczka; po kilku łykach czekolada zdecydowanie przewodzi;
OGÓLNIE: smaczne piwo, bardzo smaczne; no, może troszkę za słodkie.

lokis333 (574) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - NOV 19, 2017
Jet black colour with medium cocoa dark brown foam. Aromas of cocoa, dark chocolate, fudge and thick caramel, slight notes of salted caramel pretzels and lightly smoked meats. Palate, full body smooth creamy and sticky mouthfeel leaving very slightly warming finish. Taste, sweet of light butterscotch and cocoa with cream and Irish liqueur. Overall, nice very nice brew, however, aromas could have been slightly more intense, fairly well-hidden booze really enjoyed unfortunately prior this beer had also 12% imperial stout by Arbor with maple syrup and prefered that one.

GregMooreNH (116) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 5, 2017
Pours an inky black with a rich, thick head. Aroma is mild, of chocolate and roast. Taste is dark chocolate to roast with a hint of vanilla. Very warming aftertaste that lingers with a touch of bourbon. An elite stout that just delivers.
