Very smooth and very strong. Also very nice. I think I could drink this until I passed out. Shame it comes in 6oz pours.

Bottle (750 ml). Pours opaque black with thick, dark tan head and substantial lacing. (No light gets through the beer.) Oak, alcohol, and licorice nose. Sweet roasted malt upfront followed by licorice and some chocolate with a hint of coffee. Long finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From old notes. Beautiful pour. Long lucious glossy black forming a complex ultra easy beige head. Beautiful intregration of dark chocolate, light liquorice and roast into a stylish whole without losing each individual element.

Small brown head over deep-brown beer. Alcohol, hint at ureum, black chocolate, mocha, dark but sweet grains; generally smelling sweet. Sweet going over to dry-ish bitterness via quite some liquorice. Again chocolate, both black and sweet one. Full-bodied feel, alcoholwarmth, very slick, viscous, oozy, chewy; carbonation gone. Sweet, but good Porter. Thanks to the bringers of gifts ans purveyors of rare items!

Thanks to ElManana+1! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ “Tim’s orgasmic Trillium tasting”. Good sized sample. Black, small head. Nose is light weird mushroom note, touch umami, roasted herbs & basic milk chocolate sweetness. Taste is interesting roasted note upfront, umami, sugar, melted cheap chocolate, milk chocolate which starts to dominate more in the palate as you drink more of it, faint herbal note. Creamy chocolate body. Bit quirky but as you get more accustomed to it, it just becomes more like drink, sweet, cheap & nice chocolate. Rather liked it. Nice beer.

1600Eman (13) - Dundee, SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2015
Huge imperial Stout, heavy smoked chocolate caramel, starting sweet with slightly heavier carbonation, turning to slightly roasty coffee with little bitterness. 13.2% ABV? Not very detectable. Lovely Stour, high on my list.
