Midnight, blindfolded at the bottom of a well black pour from bottle. Off white head. Taste is smoke, coffee, leather and booze. Mild kick to the finish. Excellent. hopscotch (11089) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Bottle… Pours as black and thick as tar with no head. The aroma offers hearty - yet eloquent - notes of molasses, deeply roasted malts and dark Cuban mocha. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Delicious, bittersweet dark chocolate flavor. Burnt, acrid, bitter finish. Bottle courtesy of dosbeerigos!

Pours blacker than noon in Norway during winter. The nose is assaulted with blast beats of hazelnut, chocolate, red wine, oak, and a touch of roasted evil. Flavor is a cauldron of chocolate nuts, smoky sweet peat, coffee grounds, and hate. Thick and lingering on the tongue. \m/
Hell yeah black metal. Awesome fucking logo. The nose is dark and roasty with bittersweet chocolate, and hints of dark fruit. Pours black with a tan head. Viscuous looking. Flavors of dark roasted malts, patent notes, some underlying sugary dark fruits. Dry roasty long finish. SOme alcohol notes here and there. A decent imperial stout.

750mL thanks to ericandersnavy. Sweet label. The pour is a near ink black with a lager, deep brown head. Excellent retention and lace. Nose is butter, olives, saltwater, meat, maple. Taste is ashy, smoky, tobacco, pretty chalky and astringent. Palate is lacking, chalky, ashy.

Bottle shared by GT2: Pours an oily opaque with a creamy froth of dark tan head. Has a sweet roasty dark caramel and chocolate nose with a touch of coffee and English hops.
