750ml bottle. Holy shit. Big, boozy, sweet, sweet, vanilla extract, sweet, Hersheys Milk chocolate, fusel alcohol, sweet aroma. Did I mention the massive amount of ethanol and sweetness on the nose. Pours a lighter than expected dark brown. No head. No lace. Virtual no appearance of carbonation. Aggressively boozy, harsh and unrefined on the tongue. Not as sweet as the nose would lead me to believe. Also not as sweet as Black Tuesday. Still... The raw vanilla extract and harsh alcohol on the tongue is pretty nasty. Makes no apologies about being 18.5%. Three flavors here: cheap chocolate, grain alcohol soaked vanilla beans and poorly distilled alcohol. Surprisingly thin and watery on the tongue with... Guess what? A shitty hot boozy finish. Tastes like RARE for sure. Thanks fellas!

Heel donker bruin met beige schuimkraag. De geur is sterk alcoholisch en heeft toetsen van oud hout. De smaak is alcoholisch (zonder echt storend te zijn) en op en top chocolade. Daarnaast ook toetsen van hout. Zwaar maar wel Super voor chocolade fanaten.

JBPortland (1514) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - DEC 20, 2016
750ml bottle 2013 vintage pours viscous oily black with barely any head. Nose and taste are super sweet, sugary rich chocolate brownie batter, big roasty char and some smokey notes, hints of licorice, boozy, some vanilla, dark fruity chocolate, finishes cloyingly sweet, sticks to the mouth.

dysenteri (212) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2016
Bottleshare. Chocolate (duh!), vanilla, dark fruit, prune, figs, raisins, dates. Very fullbodied, its boozy but in a good way, its very nice hotness.

For all the hype Black Tuesday has and the fact that I really didnt enjoy it one bit, I thought this was great. Hid the booze surprisingly well as opposed to Black Tuesday and the vanilla gives it a nice rounded sweetness rather than a sugar driven kind of gritty sweetness. Like a high concentrate bitter dark chocolate dessert

onceblind (8186) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 7, 2016
Deep cola brown hue with a fast dissipating head. Big boozy and chocolaty vanilla aroma with a tinge of oak. Big Porter flavors of roasted earthy sweet chocolate and a big bit of boozy caramel, oak, and loads of vanilla. Veluptuous and sweet and boozy and complex.

ffbot (376) - Oakland, California, USA - OCT 16, 2016
Pour is an almost Crystal still black with a tiny ring of tan. Smell of leather, smoke, chocolate, prune, fruit, dark fruit cake, and dense muffin. Taste follows, chocolate gooey fruity muffin, huge butter and caramel notes. Deep and balances with ample boozyness

750 ml bottle most recently shared with drsordr and Corey, but have had a few times earlier. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have big, sweet malts, dark fruit, raisins, prunes, chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, viscous mouthfeel, very sweet, boozy, in small amounts this is ok, but that is about it.

Hoprider (508) - DENMARK - OCT 14, 2016
2012 bottle pours a clearish reddish dark brown with no real head. The nose is chocolaty, some raisins and dark fruits and bourbony too. The taste is very rich with boozy chocolate and warm sweetness. Aftertaste is dry and sweet and pretty boozy. Amazing beer that I have great love for.

drsordr (2489) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2016
Bottle shared by alexsdad06 pour dark cola brown with minimal tan head. Nose huge booze, rum soaked raisin, molasses, fig and prune. Taste molasses and maple syrup, figgy jam, and candy. Cloying sweet that actually hides the 19.5% very Port like.
