Pours a clear and dark brown beer with a beige head. The aroma is malt, chocolate, sweetness, fruit, dried fruit, coffee, roasted and alcohol. The flavor follows the nose with additional bitterness. The palate is sticky with sweetness and bitterness. Overall a good beer.

[email protected] Chocolate, vanilla, malts and milk aroma. Opaque, light brown head, good lace. Chocolate, vanilla, milk, salt, soy sauce, pretty bitter, super complex yet not over the edge, balanced.

reggiedunlop (3688) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Pours deep brown/black with a thick tan head...excellent retention and lacing. Aroma has bakers chocolate and mild dark fruit...notes of roastiness, raisin, and brown sugar. Flavor has roastiness and dark fruit with mild coffee and tobacco...aggressive but balanced nicely...hides ABV well. Mouthfeel is med/full with a roasty coffee sweet finish. Good but not as tasty as some of the parts...particularly Darkness.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2012 Bottle shared by Hiero816pack. Pours black brown with a tan head. Aroma has chocolate malt yeast and bitterness and solid roasted malt as well. Taste is more the same with a nice chocolate roasted malt and coffee and subtle yeast character. Palate is full and creamy with a drying finish. Enjoyable, but I enjoy them separate!

Received in a trade but I forget who was awesome enough to send me this bottle. Ill update if I remember. Either way, thanks alot! This bottle was shared with AndyReynolds and Ewestern.
I had read many mixed reviews before acquiring this bottle, so I wasnt too sure what to expect going into it. However, it took nothing more than the first sip to shatter the idea of any negativity surrounding this brew. Pretty much straight up awesome in every aspect. The combination of the four base stouts really lends to a unique complexity. I know it doesnt contain any Kate the Great, but as I drank my glass, thats what it really reminded me of. It seemed to have a lot of that chocolate graham cracker and roasted malt quality that I remember from my KtG sample a few years ago.

I fell victim to the hype and love this beer.

Sample had the FFF Anniversary Party. Served in a plastic sampling cup. A: Very dark black with a tan head. Splotchy lace is left down the cup. S: Sweetness with toasted malts and some chocolate fill the nose. Nothing special. T: Taste is much more complex than the nose. Roasted malts, dark chocolate. Slight bitter coffee grounds with some nice dark fruits (figs and dates mostly). There is a little booze on the backend with a touch of heat. M: Heavy bodied with a viscous coating quality to it. Good carbonation. O: Tasted like a blend of Darkness and Dark Lord. I havent had Black Albert, but I cant imagine it added anything substantial to this. It tasted good, but it wasnt mind blowing.
