UPDATED: JAN 18, 2018 12.7floz bottle, no date, bought on sale a year ago (forget price, it was cheap), imperial glass of sorts. The body appears dark brown topped with a light-medium brown head. It has a big molasses aroma, and though its boozy it's good. Tastes stickily sweet of molasses, and burns a bit during the finish. I like certain things about this beer, but it's too chewy and over the top. Even as an imperial beer. Niko100 (3014) - Chicago, New York, USA - JUL 15, 2017
Dark brown/black color; Medium creamy body; Aroma of toasted malt, chocolate, soy sauce, & some coffee; Flavor of sweet malt, caramel/vanilla, milk chocolate, dark fruit, rye, and licorice; Warm finish; Too sweet & somewhat muddled - just decent. zebra (2404) - Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2017
375-ml bottle from binnys Lincoln Park. intense dark fruit nose, good tiny-bubbled head, spotty lace, intense in mouth, roasty, sweet, boozy, chocolate, creamy, burnt finish. really should’ve been called Kogt Mælk. nearbeer (5708) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 6, 2017
375 ml. bb 03/06/25. Deep brown-black brew with a quarter inch disc of enduring foam. Smell is prune, lightly tart berry, soy and dark-toasted marshmallow. Flavors of rich mocha, dark bread, light berries. Late finish has some raisin and mild notes of cured tobacco and soy. Medium-plus bodied and sweet with just enough acidity to keep from being cloy. Pleasant low-medium CO2 level. Abv pretty well hidden but provides a nice chest warming on a blustery and chilly, early spring evening. edgallow (4689) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 30, 2017
Bottle pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of coffee, toffee and chocolate. Taste hides the alcohol well and its sweet

500ml bottle from Sonoma Cellars in Oconomowoc. Very dark brown pour with a beige head. Nose is thick roasty, sweet caramel, bakers chocolate with light phenols. Taste is sweetly roasty, caramel, bittersweet chocolate, some dark fruit, light molasses. Taste is good with the strong roast focus, but also somewhat rough. Medium-to-full bodied. Lowly carbonated with some alcohol presence. Finishes solidly bittersweet. A very nice one! 14.9 j12601 (13458) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 29, 2016
On tap at Draught. Pours a deep black with the faintest hint of a tan head around the edges. Big boozy roast and plums on the nose, lactose sweetness, malt. Alcohol is certainly detectable on the nose, but it’s not hot and angry, but subtle, and knowing. It mocks you. It knows what comes next. Medium bodied, warm and full of chocolate pudding, boozy and with a touch of sweet vanilla. Creamy mouthfeel, the lactose sweetness really comes through here, along with plums and prunes. Tastes like boozy instant pudding. Boozy on the finish.
