Bottle. Frothy white fair mostly deminishing head. Black colour. Heavy malty and light hoppy aroma. Very complex but nutty and slightly burnt in a nice way. Heavy long exstremely complex flavor, but licorice and chocolate is dominating. Long wonderfull finish. Creamy palate. World class, but a whole large botte yourself? Difficult.

Pour dark - black, with no head. A clear reddish hue around the edges. Aroma is quite complex of dark chocolate, coffee, brownie, chocolate fudge, vanilla, caramel, bourbon, slight milk chocolate, prunes, dates, figs, bourbon soaked raisins. As said, quite complex.
Taste is rather sweet (sure was expected with this 18,3 abv) but very balanced. Oily and rather thick thick bodied, with a flat carbonation. The alcohol is very much present, but nothing dominating, just some heat from the throat and keeps on giving some heat.
- this is as much a portwine, as it is adult candy, as it is beer. Thanks to Tom for sending me this. MadDogMD (215) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 16, 2012
2011 vintage. Taster courtesy of Dak. One of my top "Wants". Midnight black pour, foamy tan head. All the great things I expect from a big IS- coffee, chocolate, roasts malts, some smoke. Thick, oily mouthfeel. Paired w/ dark chocolate, which really set off this brew. Great! DesertDevil (699) - Arizona, USA - AUG 13, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2012 2009 bottle. Pours clear dark black with a touch of mocha head. Beautiful nose of smooth bourbon, soy sauce, and old paper. The taste starts with very sweet bourbon, and moves to dark cherry, chocolate, vanilla, and molasses. This has the smoothest palate I’ve ever tasted in an aged stout. Thank you, Randy!
