4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml corked bottle. An opaque black beer, with a large, frothy, lightly lacing, mostly lasting, brown head. The aroma is moderately to heavily malty (roasted grain, molasses, chocolate), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of blueberry, alcohol, hint of vanilla and dried fruits. The flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, creamy/syrupy texture, soft carbonation, very long finish with moderate bitterness, moderately alcoholic. I had average expectrations on this beer, but it really outwent them. Outstanding aroma and appearence, on the sweet side, but with enouigh final bitterness. Lightly syrupy/sticky, but overall creamy with a lot of chocolate and even some berries. The only minus is the price...
Surprisingly black pour, cola head. Roasted malts, dark fruit, dry for the style with a lighter body and higher carbonation than expected for 12%. Light coffee.
Pretty good melding of imperial stout and Belgian yeast. rumproasts (6035) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 6, 2017
bottle. Thick and black with small head. Big, rich dark chocolate and dark fruit flavor. Very nice stout, seems like it'd do really, really well if it were BBA aged.

Pure black pour, looks like oil or soy sauce. Smells a little odd, very yeasty smell but with a bit of an off note. Beer has a very creamy, slick and milky texture, a bit odd, yeasty, strong roasted grain aftertaste. Not really a fan. jsnicholas (681) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - SEP 4, 2017

bottle @ Jungle Jims / Cincinnati OH --- bb 05/16/19 --- Aroma of bitter malt. Opaque brown black color, brown head that settle to a thin rim, light strips of lace. Taste is alcohol-led malt, heavy dark loam,and natural bittering that settles in at the end. This brew is mostly about alcohol, and falls into "over-the-top" range for me.

November 6, 2014 - with blankboy, gregclow, jercraigs and mabel - 750ml bottle. Black pour, minimal brown head. Aroma of roast, alcohol - and CHEESE??? "no cheese in that taste!" - straightforward nutty/roasty coffee and alcohol impy - solid. Average body, slick, weakly carbonated, a little burnt and boozy in the finish; weird smell!
