UPDATED: APR 17, 2012 Bottle; Pour is dark brown with a mild mannered khaki head in this glass; the retention is light, with non existent lacing. The nose is cooca, vanilla, molasses, caramel, and booze honestly. The flavor profile was really impressive out of the gate. It wasnt initially boozy, but it was very heavy on the cocoa nibs and vanilla near the finish. What I found is that the booze came through later, though. The malt profile is dominant; more caramel, molasses, cocoa nibs, vanilla, dark fruits, booziness... biscuits.... light bitterness. Wow. This is quite the experience - Very nice for what it is

DesertDevil (687) - Arizona, USA - APR 2, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2013 Poured from a 2013 bottle. The appearance is cloudy dark brown with no head at all. The aroma (wow!) is incredible, with a heavy boozy nose mixed with chocolate and sweet molasses. In my humble opinion, this has the second-best aroma for a stout Ive ever tried (after Southern Tiers Creme Brulee Stout). Unlike the 2012 vintage, the beer doesnt hammer the taste buds on the first sip; instead the hot bourbon, dark chocolate, and a nice roasted sweetness combine for a more refined submission of the palate. Some vanilla joins the party late. A very hot, dry palate that finishes quickly. While its still a boozy beast, this vintage isnt as hot as previous releases. Overall, just freakin gorgeous.

jesperhammer (4476) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 2, 2012
22-MAR-2012, bottle @Paps. Black, low almost no beige head. Wauw. Bourbon nose, chocolate, and alcohol, but hey... ...no way near 18%. Taste is dark fruits, chocolate, and bourbon. "Morten, hvor blev du af...? Best chocolate beer ever. No way as dense as expected. That is actually surprising given the 18% ABV. But taste is out of this world:-)

Aroma is upfront in your face incredible. Heat. Dark brown, not thin. The palate does not linger, its hot, overall nice. No head/lacing. Sweet. Aroma brings some vanilla, booze, molasses, slight cocoa/very slight. Wood/molasses in taste, cocoa making a small appearance. Heat is present along the entire way. Its crazy good.
