Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a deep brown, near-black body with a medium creamy light beige head. Nose is caramel, peanuts, chocolate, licorice, cream, port wine and hints of coffee liqueur and pecan nuts. Taste is dark chocolate, caramel, coffee, cocoa and hints of salty licorice, tar, nougat, nuts and dark sugars. Full body, medium carbonation. Lovely complex blend of several epic stouts, and it shows. Wow. Sooo good. koleminer20 (3470) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 21, 2015
22 oz bottle shared with ebone1988. The pour is light. It fills the glass with a medium black with some ruby poking around the edges. The dark tan head sits thickly on top with a nice lace left behind. The aroma is a big chocolate malt bomb, with a touch of roast. There is an excellent complexity with lighter dark fruit notes and a bit of hop that would be from the Beer Geek Brunch. There is just a hint of alcohol on the back end. The flavor is better than it smells. There is an excellent roastiness to carry the chocolate malts and the dark fruits bring back a bit of sweetness. The alcohol really smashes you in the face, er, mouth, on the back end. The mouth feel is thick and viscous, beautifully carbonated, with a lingeringly bitter, really bitter aftertaste. This is very well done

Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is unbelievable, sweet malt, licorice, milk chocolate, amazing. Appearance poured light, otherwise black with a brown head. Taste is robust, sweet milk chocolate fades to dark fruit, fades to robust roasted malt and booze. Mouthfeel is thick as fuck, oily, great carbonation, and boozy aftertaste. Overall, this is incredibly complex and lovely. rouhlas (3584) - GREECE - MAY 17, 2015

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with black chocolate and quite a bit of residuals sugar notes is quite pleasant. Taste is a nice mix between some roasted malt with lots of black chocolates notes and some residual sugar notes and subtle coffee notes. Body is full with nice creamy texture and good carbonation with surprisingly no alcohol that is easily apparent. Way too easy to drink with just the right level of complexity. umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown pour with very little head. Sugary aroma of caramel, chocolate, red wine, and some dark fruit. Tastes too sugary sweet for me and seems a bit oxidized. Big chocolate syrup and dark fruit but also some cardboard and stale coffee. Medium body. I think I would’ve liked this better a couple years ago but I still think it would’ve been too sweet then too. FestDecBeet (412) - - MAY 4, 2015
Nice beer. Very sweet. Easy drinker hides the alcohol well.
