Draft->snifter at Churchkey. Black with small lite brown head. Coffee, chocolate, toffee, ash. Some booze. Big and bold. neongolden (1832) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2014
(On tap at Mikkeller Bar Stockholm, Oct 13 2014) Pours pitch black with a dark tan head that’s small but lingers with lace. Aroma has black coffee, pretty strongly roasted malts, smoky and almost peaty with some soy. Palate is rich and lightly sweet at first with bittersweet chocolate, black coffee, slight dark fruit, smoky roasted and charred dark malt, a bit of whiskey character and soy lingering. Dries towards the finish with bitter roast, coffee, smoke, light hops, lingering soy and malt sweetness. Thick and oily but not cloying with moderate carb. There is some booze but less than expected with a bit of heat. Just a lovely imperial, really big and really balanced as well, high flavour concentration. NateH10s (81) - Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2014

From a bottle to a tulip. While smoking some ribs and a tri-tip. Black as night, no head, sparse lacing. Big nose full of robust coffee, smoke and dark chocolate. Balanced with toasted nuts, sweet toffee and smooth bitter slightly boozy finish. A huge and delicious RIS...
