I hate to give a beer such a high rating but this one was worth it. Black, creamy, vanilla, great with any deep flavored dish or cigar. The heat is well masked so you wont even know what hit ya. Yah Baby!

This poured a very dark brown color with an amazingly dark tan head. Aroma was lots of dark fruits and molasses, light roast and some dark chocolate. Flavor profile was that more of a belgian impy, very dark fruity and estery but still a decent amount of chocolate. Not very roasted but not overly sweet either. Hid the alcohol extremely well.

I brought this one to our Stout Day event. 2009 bottle shared with a whole bunch of people. A - Pours midnight black with a nice pillow of one and a half finger tall tan head leaving small streaks of lace down the glass. S - Smells of coffee, licorice, tobacco, chocolate, and even some dark fruits. This one pretty much runs the gamut of dark aromas with no one crowding out the others. T - Starts off with quite a bit of dark roast quickly giving way to a mix of coffee, dark fruits, licorice, tobacco, and some very faint booze. The flavors work very well together with nearly perfect balance. The finish is mostly dark roast but it doesnt linger on the pallet for very long. M - Heavy body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Smooth, rich, feel that rally compliments this ones flavors very well. Very nice feel throughout. O - I have been wanting to try this one and when I got this bottle in the Easter Bunny BIF I couldnt have been happier. It has a ton of flavor and it really works well. Good stuff for sure.

Bottled. Thanks for sharing, Noize. The aroma has chocolate, dark fruits, wine. Dark black coloured beer with a litle brown head. The taste is sweet, has chocolate, roast, fruitiness, wine, wood. Very full. Nice.

22oz bottle, 2009 vintage pours a very oily, viscous, opaque black with very little brown head. Nose has a ton of cherry, some smoke, a little grape, soy. Flavor is sweet, grapey, cherry liqueur, almost like a grappa, toasty. Its missing a solid malt backbone. Full bodied, oily, warming finish. Good, but the malt base has aged out. It needed some extra sweetness or maltiness. A little too thin at this point.

Bottle. Pours super thick and dark like motoroil with dense brown head. Smells vicious and thickly chocolaty with notes of tobacco and fig. Smooth, cashmeresque body...soft malty flavors of chocolate with a slightly wine-like edge and notes of plum and fig, soft wood...not a very aggressive beer flavorwise, but this bottle is prolly a year old, right? I dont know how often this beer has been bottled...but regardless, I actually really like its soft, refined, smooth approach and the subtle, yet intricate layers of dark fruit, chocolate, earth, and the tiniest but complimenting barrel character. Im a fan of this...this is nicely soft and relaxing while at the same time, delivering a nice dose of alcohol.

Fell in love when I watched it pour. Super dark with a lovely creamy head. Surprisingly lighter tasting than its appearance. Chocolatey and malty. Overall very smooth, not overwhelming and I enjoyed it.

Black with with a brown head. I didnt get a lot from the aroma. Dark chocolate, wood, bourbon and caramel, but it was hard to pick out. Flavor was better. Dark chocolate, roasted malt, crystal malt, and a bit of astringency from the barrels. I was hoping for more barrel character, but its still very tasty. Full body with medium carbonation. Good beer.

It took awhile to track a bottle of this down. Many thanks to daknole for sharing! Pours charcoal black with a trim beige head. Brimming with notes of cocoa, leather, whiskey, and vanilla in the aroma. Tastes of additional notes of tannins, dark fruit, and a hint of cream. Extremely balanced for its depth. Worth the wait.
