UPDATED: JUL 23, 2009 BEAST! IT’S A BEAST! I love this beer because I imagine many people hate it. Port refuses to identify the style, so get ready for an American Imperial Strong Storter. Heavy roast, coffee grounds with cocoa powder, light chile, and evident booze. And if you read the label and absorb the mechanical mood, you really will start tasting motor oil and metal shavings. bp (923) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 20, 2007
Bottle: pours jet black with no head other than a very thin ring around the glass, aroma reminds me of Imperial Stouts that I have had - that strong roasted aroma and some hints of coffee and chocolate, taste is burnt, bitter dark chocolate. This is really good. I’m not sure I’d classify this as an American Strong...it’s more of an Imperial Stout to me and a damn good one at that. elektronikfagtekniker (891) - kbh, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2007
bottle. it has a black color with alsmost to no head. the aroma is sweet with dar sugar. there is lots and lots of burbon taste in it. theswede1961 (2) - USA - NOV 18, 2007 does not count
Dark like ink with a very light head. Slight hint of ruby color. Smells sweet and burnt - an intriguing and unique combination. Slid smoothly around my mouth and down my throat ... very strong burnt chocolate and alcohol flavor that is quite pleasant. It’s a brew to sip slowly and enjoy with friends.

22oz Bottle Pours out a very nice black topped with a tan head. A sweet aroma of vanilla and roast. The aroma is almost like the abbys. Very good. tast was great also. I didn’t think it was an american strong ale???

Opaque black, with a red hue when playing with the light at angles on the glass. Mocha head with cobblestone lacing. Roasted barley on the nose. Flavor is complex, with plenty of fuel with a citrus tang and a spicy hop bite, coffee, and fresh grain. Sweet. Good carbonation. A recommended brew. jake65 (4000) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - NOV 14, 2007
Rating #900. Bottle from dirty_martini - Thanks! Pours a dark brown, near black with a small tan head. Nose is rich and full of roastiness, vanilla, and seemingly that bourbon sweetness from a barrel aged brew... Smooth and creamy on the palate with flavors of cocoa, coffee, roast, and moderate sweetness into bitters. Nice level of complexity and very pleasant to drink. yespr (47474) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2007
From bottle, blind tasting at Papsoes - beer no 10. Pours black with a red hue and a lacing light brown head. Vanilla and chocolate aroma. Flavour holds a decent liqourice flavour to the smooth chocolate and mild vanilla. Finish has a persisting chocolate smoothness. No bitterness from hops, perhaps some from the roasted coffee notes.

Bottle Porus a deep blacl of course with a thin but lasting tan head. Huge vanilla and licorice roasted aroma. Flavor was big roasted and plenty of coffee. Smokey bitter trailer. Moderte palate and a bit lively on the carbonation.
Bice overall though
