*didnt like wouldnever buy*
app: black! nice dark hole indeed. small bubble filled head
Smell: nice yummy booze in the nose, classy refined. dry toasted grains, not much coffee.
taste: salty! teriyaki! odd! there are SOME other good parts of the beer, but the salt and sauce mixed with a sharp chemical like booze flavor over power and null and void any other flavor success.
mf. to spritzy
drinkable?: not really.. cook a chickenable?: VERY!

Deepest black color, black hole is an appropriate name, not even light ray escaping. It made a two finger thick caramel head with medium retention but keeping a constant plate.
Really nice and bold aroma, truly balanced meaning roasted notes don’t offset hopping and other nuances. Notes of licorice, espresso, cocoa, earthy and citrus hops, pine, wood, powder milk, grapefruit and some dark fruits.
Sweet flavor of lactic acid, piney and citrus hops, molasses, honey, coffee, licorice, vanilla, red fruits and oats. Dry and bitter aftertaste with a lingering roasted note.
Full creamy body with low carbonation. Definitely does not feel as 13.1% abv.
Good beer with great looks and smells, very lactic and a tad overly sweet though. While it was cold, citrus and piney hops was refreshing its bold and complex flavors and it was really pleasant. Still I enjoyed trying it.

Absolutely gorgeous appearance this has a deep yet bright black body and a creamy dense foam head.
The aroma is lactose-sweetness, with a tinge of boozy sherry, brandy and creamy marshmallow.
This starts sweet and boozy with a cloying liqueur and port like flavor. The further into it I went the lactose-sweetness began to grow and it was only counter balanced with a very port like alcohol. Far too cloying and boozy for me.
The feel is thick and full with a nice creaminess but it's hurt by the strong booze.
I love a stout but this took sweetness and alcohol way too far.
