Trade from BrewMane. 2013 Orange Wax bottle, drinking fresh because cellars are for chumps ;-) Pours syrupy dark black with a sub-one-finger creamy dark mocha head. Aroma of sweet roasted malts, raisins, molasses, chocolate syrup, candy sugar, and a hint of alcohol smell. Flavor is sweet molasses up front, sweet powder sugar, a bit of dark fruit, a little bitter chocolate on the finish. Nearly no trace of the 15% abv. Sweet sweet stuff. Super velvety smooth mouthfeel and very thick. Only other stouts that have had this mouthfeel come from CCB (Hunapuh, Marshal Z). Plenty of carbonation to keep it from feeling syrupy. I was expecting more on the chocolate side, but this balances sweet molasses with dark fruits prominently. The best part to me of this decedent stout is the mouthfeel. So glad I finally got a taste of this. I can see how this would blend nicely with bourbon and vanilla. ISO now I guess...

Pours a deep burnt umber color with two fingers of bubbly khaki foam that fizzles out quickly. The nose has lots of liquid brownie, dark fruit and more chocolate ! The palate wicked sweet... so sweet... lots of vanilla, dark chocolate sauce a touch of umami, burnt brownies and a long sweet mouth coating finish.

From a 650ml brown bottle. White wax indicates it was a 2009 bottle. Thick black pour, inky. Holds a faint ring of deep brown foam. Cocoa, roasted malt and some alcohol in the aroma. Taste has thick and deep dark chocolate and cocoa powder, roasty. Finishes with some smooth booziness, roasty and chocolately aftertastes. Thick bodied, midl carbonation. Impressive.

Sweet chocolate straight up. Coffee and raisins with a wonderful depth of flavour keeping everything in balance. A touch of vanilla on the back end great in respects. A big thank you to cgarvieuk

22oz bottle (2013 vintage) pours jet black with small thin layer of foam. Nose is roasty dark fruits, boozy, plum, raisin, coffee grounds. Taste is oily earthy roast and big dark fruits, sweet, molasses, spices, booze, bitter cocoa notes, grapes. Finish is slick and bitter raisin, ash, and cream. Definitely unique, a beast of a beer.

22oz bottle ( 2013) in a teku. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some chocolate and coffee, light vanilla, some molasses, and some dough. Flavor the same with a lot of dark malts and coffee and chocolate. Smooth, thick texture. A really good beer - not getting too much soy sauce like a lot of people said, and the alcohol was well hidden.
