Aroma is chocolate chip cookies, coffee, booze. Lots of creamy, huge, healthy head for a 16%er. Lacing is great. Tons of booze, burns as it finishes.Thick molasses flavor, extremely sweet with a pleasant floral hop finish. Lots of complexities...worth the price tag. Theres enough alcohol in this beer to kill a small petting zoo.

SHIG (4952) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Bottle thanks to Livingstone: Poured a deep black, with light frosty whisper bubbles. Nose was very aged liked barrel, however its not. Sweet alcohol burn hits you head on, chalky coffee and chocolate that doesnt slow the alcohol much. Not very drinkable, even split three ways!

Very dark milkshake-like head which doesnt disappear easily. Sweetness, coffee and vanilla. 17,5% but not much of it comes through in its taste. Thicker than Aretha Franklin. I noticed that it goes well with Brazilian prog.

Okay seriously wtf is this stuff? I dont even know how to describe it. The most unique beer I have ever had. It almost had a sweet teriyaki flavor. Thick, no head and super oily. I have to try this again if I can find it, it is just to complex to not try again.

Bottle from Alko Helsinki Arkadia, Finland; shared with Slothez in Hartlepool. Poured as black as a Ravens wing with a lingering dark brown head. Heavyweight snout that was chock a block with roasted malt, dark choc, hops, dark fruit and booze. Luxuriant, full bodied and thick mouthfeel. Flavour had bundles of roasted malt, a big hit of warming booze, more dark chocolate and fruits, with some coffee and liquorice notes. Finish just went on and on and on. A real pleasure to drink, and a beer that stands out from the crowd not only because of the label. .. .

375 ml bottle. Rated @ 14.11.2009.
Raw brew. Pours a pitch black colour with a massive light brown head. Burnt wood, roasted coffee and malty notes on the aroma. Very rich and raw. Same thing on the nose where the espresso and roastiness dominate. Full bodied, very rich flavour and oily texture. Excellent brew with a lot of potential after storing.

2005 version @ Olutravintola Pannuhuone. Its like drinking another beer compared to the raw version. Very barley wine -like with sweet taste and a alcohol warming mouthfeel. Both versions are awesome in their own ways.

Shared a bottle @Sadonkorjuu. Poured pitch black with almost no head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, liquirice and some alcohol. Very complex indeed. Warm Flavor is port, roasted malt, dark chocolate. Finish is bitter, chocolate and coffee. Warming, but the alcohol is not disturbing in any way. The strongest beer I have tasted so far.

bottle poured into a snifter has a dark black color and little head unless swirled aggressively in the glass. aroma is thick, tar like, heavy roasted malt, mild oxidation, molasses, dark rich fruit, and alcohol. mouth feel is thick and virtually non carbonated sticking to the tongue. flavor is an assault of dark heavy roasted malt, molasses, rich dark fruit, licorice, and a hefty swap of alcohol. wow this is a big boy and is it sweet. initially it crushes your tasters and makes this seem mellower over time. some chocolate and burnt coffee come on as the glass warmed up.

Im going to have to rate this again. For now, its delightful but not beer. No carbonation, minimal hop bitterness if any. More like an after dinner drink. Sweet nose, sweet taste. Complex interactions among the malts. Notes of chocolate and espresso, and much, much sugar. Would be cloyingly sweet, with so little carbonation, if not for ... what? I dont know why this works. I had a shot glass, not a bottle, so it is not the alcohol in the beer that is making this review sound so confused.
