Lets go to the Jockey BoxAdmiralVernon (1195) - SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2015
Fred’s Softball, shared by friend, not in dining room, for make the taste!
Pours black with a good head and decent lacing on the glass.
The aroma offers a bunch of stuff, raisins, chocolate, port wine, rum... booziness. It works together nicely for sure.
The flavor offers sweetness & richness with a low level of bitterness. Most bitterness offered comes in the form of roasty malt and coffee character both of which are modest players in the ball game. It’s chocolaty, it’s got a lot of dark fruit and a good bit of booziness.
My review makes it sound like I don’t like it, which isn’t true at all. It’s huge, and it’s fun, not sure I’d want a lot of it... but I sure do like it real good.
A: Coffee, hint of bourbon, some oak T: Wow... Bitter coffee, still some bourbon, hint of plums.. I: Amazing stout! Available? Drink it. Countbeer (6592) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2015
Bomber: Shared with Iluvatarmilan: Served in a Chouffe glass at 13 degrees Celsius:
Black beer with a medium sized beige brown head.
Aroma is just like a BIPA and some slight butterscotch hints.
Flavours of deep dark roast, soy, bitters, mocha, dark chocolate, some liquorice, chalk, cacoa, some hops, quite refreshing for an Imperial Stout!
Aftertaste is a mix of liquorice, roast, dark chocolate, hops, bitters..
Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, close to full bodied. IluvatarMilan (282) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2015
Astonishing beer, which is little surprise considering its components. Depth, strength, hoppiness, chocolate, coffee. Grains. Mutes the considerable abv amazingly well.

Deep black pour with no head. Aroma of sweet sugar, a lot like Dark Lord in the aroma. Taste is explosion of bitterness and sweet that play on each other nicely. I can taste elements of all 4 beers. Bitter coffee, sweet toffee, candy & roast. Huge chewy mouth. Very interesting and also tasty. devman171 (1221) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2014

Bottle share at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell on 30 Jun 2012. Poured black, with a thin tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, liquorice and alcohol soaked dark fruits. Thick, full mouthfeel. Strong flavours of coffee, treacle and some smokiness. Finish was dates, burnt malt, cocoa and port. jdb288 (584) - Wake Forest, North Carolina, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Are these blends a bit gimmicky? I don’t care - i bought into the hype. Great mix here with lots of dark fruit, booziness and some faint cocoa notes. A lot of licorice here which I wasn’t expecting. It’s held up well though. beechner224 (1024) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Bottleshare thanks to DrewFace! Pours black, almost no head. Aroma is raisin, toffee, burnt sugar, more sugar. Taste is sweet, sugar, burnt toffee, bitter is hell.
