This beer is awesome. Others have profiled it nicely, so Ill just say that this is an extremely tasty stout that totally covers its high gravity. The only real complaint I have is that it feels a little thin for a stout. Well done.

From a bottle. Pours dark brown with a fizzy tan head. Tastes like raisin, dark chocolate malt, and smokey wood. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like raisin, dark chocolate malt, and smokey wood.

Ysok02 (1203) - Mons, BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2016
Robe brune, mousse beige, crmeuse et abondante. Nez lgant sur des notes fumes, chocolates, sur un fond de houblon et de fruit, volue vers un cot chocolat au lait et caf, trs complexe. Bouche lattaque ample, riche, complexe, la bulle est la fois fine et moelleuse, la finale longue et superbe sur un cot chocolat et torrfi. Un superbe Stout de fin de soire.

Beardbeerman (341) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2016
Pours a pitch black robe topped by two fingers of creamy mocha head. Retention is good and strings of lacing cover the sides of the glass. The nose is rich with dark fruits, dattes, figs, molasses, ground coffee, peppercorn. The taste is semi-sweet with the dark fruit at the forefront and bitter coffee notes in the back. Pleasant mouthfeel, nice richness. Long coffee grounds finish. Beautiful product. Cheers!

BrewWhatIWant (53) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2016
This pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a short lived brown head. On the nose there is chocolate and alcohol. The taste is very dense. Dark chocolate, espresso, toffee, berries, figs, liquorice, and underneath it all hot alcohol, like vodka. There is no hop presence. It is moderately carbonated and medium bodied. The beer leans a little to the sweet side, though nearly balanced by bitterness. Truly, the dessert of beers.

appiantiqua (130) - Lyon, FRANCE - OCT 17, 2016
Dguste dans un verre Charles Quint. Temprature de dbut 7 8. Magnifique robe brun sombre opaque surmonte dune fine mousse beige assez tenace; bonne carbonatation. Nez trs dlicat sur le chocolat avec une touche vineuse(madre,vin cuit) et un soupon de levure trs agrable. Le got est fantastique et combine parfaitement les saveurs de type Chocolat/cacao/caf avec les notes fruites(prunes,figues) le tout dans une parfaite harmonie douceur/amertume. La richesse et la complexit de cette bire nous obligeront la regoter prochainement ce qui ne sera pas une pnible affaire!!! La finale est trs longue et plaisante et nous ramne toutes les flaveurs en ajoutant la chaleur apprciable dun alcool idalement intgr. Un merveilleux stout!!! 18,5/20

I was only going to include pre-Ratebeer beers as ticks, but I want the country on my map so I am breaking my own rules! Better than I expected. A perfectly nice stout, even if its not particularly interesting.
